Map My Ride Route
The ride begins at the BART parking Lot and has a flat 10 mile warm up, followed by some rolling hills before hitting the south gate and your 11 mile climb. Average grade is 5.2%. Then return home the same we went out!
We will ride out to the athenian school as a group and do some warm up spins and sprints to get the legs warm for our climb.
Once at the school, we will break into three groups:
Group A - Full climb, no planned stops - all riders at their own speed - Reconvene at the summit.
Group B - Full Climb - Planned regroup at the Ranger station at approximately mile 7 of the climb (the turn from 5% grade to 7%.). Regroup and then press on to the summit.
Group C - To Ranger Station - Regroup at S Gate Entrance Station (4miles from school, 1,000ft elevation). Ride ends at Junction Ranger Station (another 3 miles + 600 ft elevation gain)
All groups then to descend together (more or less) - SAfety first.
All groups ideally regroup at Athenian school and ride to bart together.
For those interested in some well deserved celebration afterwards, I'd propose a short drive to Fieldworks in San Ramon
