Mt Hamilton Gold Mine Ride

There's GOLD in them thar hills! Let's git some.

First we'll climb Mt Hamilton, then descend the other side to Mines Road, which passes by several abandoned gold mines. Perhaps the miners missed a few nuggets somewhere?

Mines Road leads to Livermore, where we'll stop for lunch. Then take BART or bike back to San Jose. There are a few different routes back, the posted route includes Niles Canyon Rd.

Total distance is 110 miles, bailing at BART cuts it down to about 95 miles. http://ridewithgps.com/routes/2147693

Ride meets at B2 Coffee.

This is a drop ride. Slow riders dropped.
