Thanksgiving. Mt Hamilton.

'Nuff Said.

Hard Heads

Our insurance demands it: helmets are required. Sorry kids, no exceptions!

Time and Place

This fine Thanksgiving morning, we'll stage at the intersection of Alum Rock Road and Mt Hamilton Road in San Jose. Registration ends at 9:15 is a bright-and-early 9:30 start, giving all extra time to get home in time for Thanksgiving festivities.

Public Transit

Caltrain is running on a Sunday schedule, and won't get into San Jose until 9:30am. BART is also running a Sunday schedule, and doesn't arrive in Fremont BART station until 9:05am. It's over 17 miles to the start of the climb, too far to make in time. So no luck.
