Sunday October 4, 2015
"Thank you Mount Diablo Challenge for putting on a great event! It helped me attain a goal I thought I would never reach. I had no idea my accomplishment would inspire family and friends to make positive changes in their lives."
The Save Mount Diablo Challenge, presented by CA Technologies, is a family-friendly 11.2 mile timed bike ride, starting at Athenian School in Danville and climbing up Southgate Road 3,249 feet to the summit of Mount Diablo. Cycling enthusiasts compete and prizes are awarded for several categories in a ceremony at the summit with food and beverages for all. Results are now available online.
Riders of all ages are welcome to join in this event! Riders can compete on any type of non-motorized bicycle, including tandems, uni-cycles and hand powered vehicles. We are also happy to announce the Second Annual "Ride Your Age" Division - Level the playing field for 50+ age and gender! Ride Mount Diablo in the number of minutes as you are old and you will win a Save Mount Diablo jersey and get on the podium.
All proceeds benefit Save Mount Diablo’s land conservation efforts to create a national park-sized wilderness in your backyard for you, wildlife and future generations to enjoy.

From California to Peru! Raffle prize winner Kevin Davidson of the CA Technologies Racing Team donated the 6Fifteen Cyclery bicycle prize, donated by Dave & Sue Dalton, to Pacific Atlantic Cycling (PAC) Tours. The bike will be gifted by PAC Tours during their end of summer trip to help Peruvian cyclists.
Thanks to all of our generous sponsors, volunteers, park rangers, the Mount Diablo Amateur Radio Club, and the Contra Costa County Sheriff's department.
Without your efforts we could not make this event possible!
