Hey guys!

hodgie441 and I are going for a fun ride on Monday. Ya'll are welcome to join us! Rocky? Where are you? I'm calling you!

Here's the itinerary:
DATE: Monday, Sept 26, 2005
START TIME: Meet at 9:45, Leave at 10:00
START LOCATION: Starbucks 398 Hartz Ave Danville, CA
MIDDLE DESTINATION: Mt. Diablo Summit!
FINAL DESTINATION: Masse's Bar & Grill 2721 N. Main St. Walnut Creek, CA

Leave *$ and head down Diablo Rd. to Mt. Diablo Scenic Drive. Turn left there, and head up the mountain. We'll make a stop at Rock City (maybe?) then head to the peak. The museum will be closed on Monday, but the scenery won't! :rockon
When we're ready, we can head back down, but we will take North Gate Rd. on the way back down. Take this all the way to Walnut Ave. Take Walnut to Treat and turn left there. Turn left at N. Main St. Masse's is about a block up on the right.

Have lunch, play pool (for free), hang out, have FUN!

Get 1 hour of free pool with the purchase of two entrees.

OR

Get 1/2 hour of free pool with the purchase of one entree.

Please post here if you want to come with us, and then PM me with your real name and cel #. I'll make a list of contact numbers and PM you back with my number so we will know whether to wait for you or not (if you're running late, etc.).

Please note: this is not a race! You don't get a trophy for being first to the top! We will be riding "The Pace". If you aren't familiar with that, please read here: http://www.eastbaysportbikes.com/showthread.php?t=3

and these are great guidlines for a group ride: http://www.eastbaysportbikes.com/showthread.php?t=64 We would like to adhere to them ;-)

I look forward to seeing you guys on Monday!

Jeff

Thanks. Sorry you couldn't come. Next time!

We all made it back OK. I had a little equipment malfunction (lost the screw that holds my shift linkage. LOCTITE! ) 3 turns from the summit. Well, actually it just unscrewed, but was hanging there when I pulled over, so I screwed it back in. I did lose the spacer. We made it to the top and hung out for a bit. Then, at the bottom as we were passing through the ranger station, it fell out again. This time losing the bolt. Luckily up ahead was a shopping center with an Ace Hardware so I left it in second and just cruised in there and bought some bolts/nuts. 96 cents later and I was back on the road again. Made it home no problemo
