If you're not tapering or racing this weekend, come knock off one of the mountains in the triple mountain challenge.
The route is so easy, even I couldn't get lost!
BART leaves 16th street mission at 7:12 to get you to walnut creek at 7:54
Plan to leave Walnut Creek BART by 8am so we can beat the heat while climbing up to the top. There's an easy 5 mile warmup, before you climb for 11 miles, followed by 200 ft of 20% to get to the summit. Celebrate, enjoy a "coke" at the visitors center and coast back down to the base.
There is water you can refill at the side of the road around half way up the climb (2000 ft)
Plan to be self sufficient - water bottles, spare tubes, food, etc.
