Mt. Hamilton Classic

The oldest permanently occupied mountain top observatory in the United States is Lick Observatory - a place of many fond memories during my grad school and early years as an astronomer. This past Saturday, our intrepid cyclers determined it was THE day for riding up this Bay Area classic - Dave and Diane are training for the Death Ride, and I have the Solvang Century the following weekend. Dino is, of course, ALWAYS up for a mega-ride, and the rest of our gang as well. All went well, and me and my little bottle of "5hr Energy" felt great, despite being at the 36hr point from a rather tough 10 mile hilly run. Enjoy the commentary and a few pix here http://www.cabrillo.edu/~rnolthenius/OtherAdv/MtHam-Mar12/index.html
