RideOn braved the winter cold and rains and went on another old favorite East Bay route. Starting at Dublin/Pleasanton BART, we headed south to the Sunol Wilderness and Calaveras Dam — also recently opened like Crystal Springs. Then we biked west to return via Warm Springs BART. The ride started well with the sun and blue sky breaking through the grey clouds. We thought we’d get away with just a few light showers but when we were above the dam, most of us were pelted by a hail storm. With snow capped Mt Hamilton as a backdrop! Luckily, delicious tea and thalis warmed us up at the Chaat House.
