02/11/2017 - Diablo was always the training ride I wish I’d taken but never did while living in Berkeley. I’d always hoped to incorporate it into a century ride.

Finally on one of my visits back I decided to go for it. But I’d flown in so I needed a rental. The only thing I could find a shop willing to rent me was a single-speed, and that is what I rode to the top. I cannot say the whole ride was particularly pleasant but it was a clear and beautiful day and I was grateful for that.

I did not know about the Eye of Diablo. But I also want to go back to look for the tarantulas when in season.
