Mt Hamilton New Year’s Day schedule

Kevin, Alec (Redwood City Chain Reaction employee) and I will be heading to San Jose on the #422 Caltrain, arriving at the San Jose station at 9:53am. As before, we should arrive at the base about 10:30 for the trip up the mountain. Figure on hitting the top sometime between 12:15 and 12:45, depending upon the pace. Kevin would be pushing for 12:15 but Alec doesn’t have the miles in his legs yet (he’s relatively-new to road biking).

Trains return every hour, on the hour, and you should figure nearly two hours for the trip back to the station. Yes, really, that long, because the descent off Mount Hamilton isn’t very fast. So leave the top at 1pm, and get the 3pm train home.

As always, this is not an organized ride,  just something a lot of people do to start out the New Year. Maybe see some of you there! –Mike–
