New Year's Day Road Ride

THIS ISN'T LOOKING GOOD. EXPECTING THE FREEWAY TO BE FLOODED THROUGH FAIRFIELD AGAIN SO DON'T EXPECT THE DAVIS CONTINGENT. THIS MAY BE A MOVIE AND HOT COCOA DAY.

If the trails are awash in mud, come join us on a road ride up Mt. Diablo. Seems a good way to welcome in the new year - not that Mad Cyclist's dirt ride wouldn't be just as good.

Princess Zippy is training for the DMD so she's going for the summit twice. She and her coach are starting at 8 am. The rest of us will meet them at the North Gate Entrance at 11 am.

I'm guessing that means being on your bike at Arbolado Park at 10:30 but I really can't remember how far the entrance is from the park so this time may change.

Probably head for the local pizza and beer joint after. I believe it has received the Jo Certificate of Approval.

If you want to carpool from Davis, you know how to reach us.

PS - Rain cancels, but if the skies just look threatening we may choose a more weather-friendly route.

Heh, if it has anything better than Bud Lite it earns the coveted jobob Certificate of Approval.

I'm getting cranky. Forecast says rain. Pooh!

The gate is 1.3 miles and 100 feet elevation gain from the park, per Google Earth. We should be able to travel that distance in 30 minutes I should think :).

What is Plan B if the weather looks bad?

I have to be at work at 3pm in San Jose, so I will probably have to start at 9am. I'll try to find you all on the ride down. I'd say I'll wear my AV slevelesss but not in this cold! I'll have a red jacket on...

Cheers! Cindy
