Details

[UPDATE 11/29/18]
Sadly, we must cancel this ride due to rain. We went from too dry (fires/smoke) to too wet. This wasn’t in the cards for us this year so we’ll reschedule for next year. See you all there!
__________

Hope you can join us for our last monthly group ride of 2018 as we ascend to the top of Mount Diablo. The views here are spectacular and we should have a clear day to take it all in. The drive will be lovely, scenic with sweeping turns, a touch of twisty-ness, but not technical. We'll have lunch in Pleasanton and if time permits, we may visit Arlen Ness in Dublin.

Be prepared for multiple climates, dress in layers. Bring a snack and water. Rest stops are not listed below, but we plan to stop about every 90 minutes for quick breaks.

Schedule:
9:00 am - Kick stands up (Spirit Motorcycles)

• When on major highways, the group may ride in the slow lane to ensure the group stays together.
• There is safety in numbers.
• The routes try to take us on roads less traveled. Some of these roads might be a little rough (in need of repairs).
