Wednesday Evening Rides Return

Spring is coming! With Daylight Saving Time we will resume the Wednesday evening Mount Diablo rides. We ride up Northgate Road to the junction ranger station. We usually smooze for a while at the junction and then ride back down Northgate, or go down Southgate and back on Danville Boulevard. Sometimes a few will go to the summit. There are two starting points: Heather Farms park, or the Mormon church on Northgate, one block from Castle Rock. The Heather Farms riders start first and swing by the church 15 minutes later.

The rides resume on March 12. The starting time depends on how much daylight we have. The schedule is as follows:

Months Heather Farm Mormon Church
March & April 4:30 4:45
May through August 5:15 5:30
September 4:45 5:00
October 4:30 4:45
