Sat 5/9 Mines Rd. ride

At least six of us will be riding Mines Rd this Saturday. Most going to the Junction Cafe and back, one or two may do Hamilton as well.

Meet: 9:30, roll 9:45.

Start: meet 1.4 miles up Mines Rd. after you turn off Tesla, near the sign for the pumpkin patch ("Joan's Farm"). Park on the dirt pullouts on the side of Mines Rd. A sub-group may start earlier from the Peet's in Livermore, but we'll all convene at Joan's.

Mines Rd start is a 56-mile out-and-back. Livermore Peets is 68 (adds 6 flat but sometimes windy miles each way). Route is a mix of flat with one long climb at the start, plus a couple smaller ones before the Junction Cafe. Remote and beautiful.

I'll be starting from Pete's around 9:00.
The out and back loop from Pete's that includes Mt. Hamilton will be about 97 miles.
