The weather looks very good for riding up Mt Hamilton on New Year’s Day, an annual event for many of us. You can head up the hill anytime you want, but the “Chain Reaction” folk will start from Alum Rock and Mt Hamilton at 9am. Kevin will likely be pushing for time, maybe to better his 1:37 of a couple months ago, while I’m likely going to be heading up at a more civilized pace with Burt, one of our alumni. New info- Burt says he’s leaving an hour or so earlier! Darn, I was looking forward to a moderate pace. Now I’m going to be killing myself trying to keep up!
There’s no food or water on the way up, so make sure you’ve got two bottles and power bars or whatever keeps you going. The coke machine at the top takes only crisp dollar bills, not soggy, so store them in a plastic baggie and you’ll be fine.
See you there- –Mike–
