FRI FEB 2 5/T/30-38 The Ascent to Mt Diablo
Leader: Maria Teresa Garcia De La Noceda     (510) 725-8405
Leader: Glenn Kirby     (510) 882-6808
Leader: Thomas Ayres     (510) 295-8228
Meet at 9:00 am
Start Location: Pleasant Hill BART

According to the Wikepedia, “Mount Diablo is sacred to many California Native American people; according to Miwok mythology, and Ohlone mythology, Mt Diablo was the point of creation”. Its magnetism is still felt today, specially among hikers, and cyclists; this may be explained also by looking into its volcanic origin, since the upper portion of the mountain is made up of volcanic and sedimentary deposits.

The Ascent involves a steep climb, 6 ½ miles up to the Junction, and 4 additional miles up to the Summit, therefore you need to feel comfortable about climbing, confident about descending, at ease with your bike, and follow the Safety Tips outlined by the Mount Diablo State Park (http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=517),
specifically for Drivers and Cyclists:

  • Observe posted speed limits.
  • Stay in your lane on blind curves and do not cut corners.
  • Do not pass on double-yellow lines and until you have a clear view of oncoming traffic and it is safe to do so.
  • Wearing headphones that cover both ears is illegal. Wear only one headphone if you have to.

Today, captivated for its majestic magnetism, we are going to start our bike ride from Pleasant Hill BART, and via some quiet, and flat residential streets we will arrive to North Gate Rd., where we will initiate our climb to the "Magic Mountain". At the Junction, we will REGROUP, and rest.

Some of us, will turn around, and descend, retracing our steps, and stopping at the Ygnacio Valley Shopping Center, at 1881 Ygnacio Valley Rd., in Walnut Creek, to have some lunch … There are a variety of cuisines to choose from.

Some others, after the Junction, will continue the climb, up to the Juniper Campground, or up to the Summit. Then, they will stop, as well, at the Ygnacio Valley Shopping Center, for lunch … where they will rejoin the rest of the group.

This ride is co-sponsored with the Bicycle Section of the San Francisco Bay Area Chaper of the Sierra Club.

Meet at 9:00 am for a 9:05 am start

We will ride to the Summit of Mt. Figueroa via the east side, which is very remote with one mile of rough dirt and water crossings.  It is less steep then the West side, but has more climbing. After the summit, we will descend down the West side to Los Olivos for lunch at Panino.    Return to Solvang via Alamo Pintado or Ballard Canyon.  We have many cue sheets, routes and possibilities, you are welcome to extend, shorten, or lead an additional ride in competition with this ride.  If you plan on joining us, please let us know in advance, you must attend the happy hour / route planning meeting the night before, or check in with us, so that you are aware of any changes to the route, start time or start location. 30% PoP may cancel, but since this is an adventure ride, temps above 90 and below 30, and hordes of locusts will still allow the ride to continue.
