I'll be visiting the area the first weekend in May. I'll arrive Friday afternoon, and the earliest I'll be able to hit the road will probably be around 5:00. I'm staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Walnut Creek, on N. Main St. Is the Iron Horse Trail down to Pleasanton (an area I know well) a feasible option for a quick 40? I know that traffic will be crazy at that time, especially on a Friday, so I want to avoid roads if at all possible. The next morning I'll be riding from Patterson to The Junction so I want to keep the legs fresh. Thanks.
