Diablo Century 2009
Tricia and Joyce at the top of Morgan Territory Road.
The first ever Diablo Century hosted by the Jewish Community Center in Walnut Creek was a delight. They did a great job, even without considering it was their first. Good route markings, interesting food, cool logo, nice after dinner ride. But the star was the route. ride this area a lot, but they found a good to get us from Walnut Creek to Morgan Territory. Then Livermore to Sunol, over to Hayward/Castro Valley, down through Canyon and Moraga, up to Orinda and back to WC in 100 miles and just a bit over 6000 feet of climbing.
It was a bit cool and windy, but Tricia and I along with our BikeForums.net friends all had a grand time. I'd have bought a jersey if they offered one.
