Mount Diablo Challenge, Sunday, October 6th
Considered the East Bay’s “Best Uphill Bike Ride,” the Mount Diablo Challenge is a great event for entry level and experienced cyclists. In addition to offering the traditional ride-climbing 3,249 feet in 11.2 miles- that this year’s Tour of California pros followed, cyclists will have the option of choosing the less demanding Junction Wave course for the first year ever. The Junction Wave is a great option with about half the climb at 6.5 miles with a 1,578 elevation gain. Riders of all ages are welcome to compete on any type of non-motorized cycle. Prizes are awarded to participants at a family- friendly summit party complete with food and beverages. Proceeds benefit Save Mount Diablo in its mission to preserve, defend and restore the Diablo wilderness for wildlife and people to enjoy. To register or for more information, please visit www.SaveMountDiablo.org or call (925) 947-3535.
Registration closes Thursday 10/3 at midnight.
