Mount Diablo

Had a good ride on Mount Diablo Today! From Castro Valley BART through South Gate, to the summit and return via North Gate and Pleasant Hill BART. Have a few photos will try to post. About 50 miles of riding along with 5,000 or 6,000 feet of climbing all told. It was extremely windy near the summit – saw some folks turning back, and it was tough going in some spots, but we made it OK. The descent is pretty amazing – mellow and seems to go on forever! Great views today – from the Farallons to the Sierras. So much snow up there! Yesterday’s rain drowned the junk from the air so under the sun today it was super clear. We didn’t stay at the summit long though – there was ice and the wind but we didn’t have all our warm gear.

Fun times!
