Can I get suggestions on my proposed Mt. Diablo ride for sometime soon in December or early January?
My thought would be to start at Arbolado(sp) Park and ride thru the North Gate to the junction, down to the South gate, then back up to the Summit, then riding back down to the North Gate to finish.
I rode from Danville last year during December, and thought the Diablo Rd. approach was a bit dicey with traffic near the country club, but once off that expressway, from the Athenian School all of the ride was great. Does anyone know the total miles for this route? Any other ideas to get the most out of the mountain. Any good places near Ygnacio Valley Rd for post ride lunch? I'm coming from the north Bay Santa Rosa area. Your thoughts, experiences. Thanks.
