The Mount Diablo Challenge is a family-friendly 11.2 mile timed bike ride, starting at Athenian School in Danville and climbing up Southgate Road 3,249 feet to the summit of Mount Diablo.
It's hard so it's fun!
My strava route from last year challenge:
Please join the co-ed "San Francisco Triathlon club" team when you register and say that we will not start all in the same corral. Our best 2 female and 2 male performances will be combined and count for team awards.
If you don't know how long it will take you, you can use this as a guide when you register:
Elite climber: <1h (male), <1h10 (female)
Strong climber: <1h15 (male), <1h20 (female)
Good rider: <1h30 (male), <1h40 (female)
If you need a ride or can give one, please use this spreadsheet to coordinate (I don't think BART is riding early enough on the weekend):
