Mt Diablo awaits on this challenging 58 mile, 4900 ft climb for intermediate to advanced riders.
This is not a ride for the faint of heart.
We will meet at Children's Fairyland. From there, We will do our first climb, approx 1200 ft through the Oakland hills to Redwood road (mile 8). We'll then descend a bit and go through Moraga, Lafayette, Danville (mostly flat until mile 28) and start climbing again on South Gate road on our way to the summit, 3852 ft, mile 41. From there, if we're still alive, it's all DOWNHILL to the Pleasant Hill BART station.
If time allows, we'll go for a well deserved lunch!
The ride will take 5 to 6 hours, so plan accordingly.
As a courtesy to your fellow cyclists, please be punctual and ready to roll.
Here's the route:Oakland-Diablo-Pleasant Hill
