Black Mountain

Up

I did the Black Mountain ride on June 14th - it was 35.9 miles and about 4:30 hours of cycling - although my bike computer does not record under 3 mph and some of the ascent up Montebello Road was less than 3 mph.

I wandered through Los Altos Hills, finally reaching Foothill Expressway just before 280 and then took it to the end in Stevens Creek Park.  I had a break in the park then ascended Montebello Road to the Picchetti Winery. It took me 1 hour and 20 minutes up Montebello Road from the Picchetti Winery to the fire road gate that leads to Black Mountain at the top of Montebello Road.  Its then a rough track over Black Mountain to Page Mill, which I am glad to say was warmer than when I descended it before. I also had gloves on this time, which makes the hands more comfortable on the brakes.
