    Mt. Hamilton-Lick Observatory 12-11: Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

    Hey, I'm no roadie, but I love me some Mt. Hamilton--at least when it's too muddy to ride dirt.

    Plan: Meet at the corner of Alum Rock Rd./Mt. Ham Road (130)

    Start time: I'm bit flexible, but the visitor's center doesn't open until 12. Climbing pace will be mellow, but I like to try and keep up with cars on the descent!

    Stats: 37/4900ish, but it never gets steep. Brass monkey cold at the top.

    Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice--pull down your pants and slide on the ice.

    Why did I think, for some reason, this was going to involve telescopes?

    It's optional!

    Lick was the first alpine observatory in the world, free tours every hour. It's the coolest place in the Bay Area that most people have never been to.

    Just hit 200 lbs, no riding in a couple weeks, got over a cold, yeah sounds perfect!

    Actually the worst part about Hamilton when you're out of shape is the amount of time spent on the saddle.
