Sunday's PRS is one of our favorites, Mines Rd. It's an out and back from Lucky in Livermore to The Junction.
PRS #9 Mines Rd to The Junction
1951 Holmes St, Livermore, CA 94550, USALength: 63 miles; Elevation: 4481 feet
Terrain: 4; Pace: M, M+
Meet at 8:30 am for an 8:45 am start from Livermore at the Lucky's parking lot at Concannon and Holmes.
This is one of our pretties rides! We will ride up Mines Road to the Junction Cafe at Del Puerto Canyon. Bring plenty of food and water and a couple of tubes because there are no stops and limited cell service for over 30 miles to the Junction Café. The Cafe is usually open with restrooms, food and water, but sometimes it is closed. (The nearby CDF Sweetwater station has a public restroom and furnishes water for riders on weekends.) We will return the way we came, enjoying a well-earned, long descent. We sometimes have strong headwinds for the last few miles so be sure to reserve a little energy just in case.
