Sat, Oct 11: Diablo

The plan for today was to ride Diablo, to make up for last weekend's missed opportunity. The temperature in the morning was a little turn-off, but looking outside the window, having great visibility and clear, sunny skies, I was determined to achieve my personal Diablo Challenge today. It was about 65F in Danville when I started riding, and by the time I reached the summit, the temperature had dropped to 43F. I was the only cyclist at the summit; it didn't really feel cold until turning around and heading downhill.

Today's ride took me 1:13 hours, from the "Hole in the Wall" to the summit, excluding stops at Junction, Juniper and some photo opportunity locations.
