3/4 M/B Multiple Options 

Come join us for this climb up Mt. Hamilton in San Jose.  There are three different staging options.  For Options 1 &2, park right across the street from Hwy 130 and the start time is 9:00 A.M.  

Option #1 - 2/3 L/M/B 37 Miles, 4,966 in elevation gain to the top.  

Mt. Hamilton is a steady climb for about 18 miles with mild to moderate grades. There are restrooms at Joseph Grant Park, Porta Potties at the midway, and full restrooms at the top.  Fuel and fluids are very limited, so please be sure to bring plenty of both.  


Option #2 - 3/4 M/B 67 miles, 7,163 in elevation gain into Livermore

This is a one way route from Alum Rock to Hamilton.  You will then descend into Livermore via Mines Road.  Please note there are limited facilities, so please are sure to bring plenty of fuel and fluids.  You will have the same restroom opportunity as the shorter route, but once you descend over the top of Hamilton, there are no facilities until you reach the Junction.  Please come prepared.  ***This route will require car pooling so you can get back to your car after the ride.  If you are interested in this ride, please be sure to organize your return ride to your car.***


Option #3 - 3/4 M/B 104 miles, 9,041 in elevation gain.  The start time for option 3 is 6:30 A.M.

This is a challenging ride from Livermore to Calaveras and Hamilton and returning through Livermore.  This ride will stage from Ernie Rodriquez Park in Livermore on Concannon and N. Livermore.  Plan to stage by 6:30 if you plan on meeting up with the group.  Like the other rides, this is a challenging ride with limited opportunities for fuel and fluids. Please come prepared.
