Livermore to Patterson Pass
Somewhere on Tesla Road doing club ride from Livermore to Patterson Pass (a 45 mile route). OMG people, I loved every bit of this incredibly scenic ride.
After the gentle climb up Tesla, we were greeted with 16 miles of descent along Corral Hollow Road. Every turn was breathtaking. I have a million zillion photos. I loved that we were on the same road for 25 miles.
Crossing 580 on the way to Tracy for a lunch break; neat to be so close to the water aqueduct.
Starting Patterson Pass. It was freaking stunning. Again, the grade was not too bad until the summit.
A perfect weather day. Yay for alternative energy sources.
Not sure that I mentioned the stunning landscape. On and on. Every minute a joy. Must do again.
Just the Stats:
