Morgan Territory Road 11-23-13
I rode Morgan Territory Road yesterday for the first time since the summer, and it was gorgeous up there! I had waited till after the first rain, because I was afraid that the air would be dusty and acrid from the fire, but though you could see the fire scars on Diablo if you looked, there was no trace of the fire near Morgan Territory Road, and the water fountains and toilets at the park on top were open and working.
I was puzzled: I'm slow, and we took a nice long lunch break at the picnic tables on top, so the whole ride from Concord BART to Dublin-Pleasanton BART took about 5 hours -- and we did not see one other cyclist on Morgan Territory Road, and only three cyclists on the whole ride, counting kids and commuters. (One car on Morgan Territory Road did have a couple of mountain bikes on the roof -- but they weren't riding). Where did all the cyclists go? Were they _all_ skiing?
Are the restrooms and water fountains still open and working on Diablo? If not, which are open and which are closed? In particular, where is there to get water on the way up?
