Leader:     Sandy Yarrow, 802-0898, skybike@surewest.net

Description:     Take I-80 W to 680 S, exit Crow Canyon, and Starbucks will be on the R at the corner of Camino Tassajara. We'll ride up Mt Diablo via the South Gate Rd., where you can continue up Summit Rd to the TOP for a great view, (1700 ft of the climbing). Be on the lookout for the amorous male tarantulas commonly seen crossing the road during the fall seeking mates (the grass is always greener). Descend North Gate Rd, then some climbing thru the scenic and rural Morgan Territory. Take a break in Clayton at mile 28. Bring 2 water bottles and snacks. Total elevation 5200 ft.
