*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Calaveras Road north of the dam is closed for the remainder of 2017. Today we give up on waiting for the reopening - we'll go to Sunol and breeze along the creek beside easy Kilkare Road. Then it's south on Calaveras Road to Welch Creek Road for a steep struggle beside Welch Creek. It's a short ride, so join me in doing it twice. Palomares is a nearby option that just reopened, but we'll be there in two days. Start/finish at the Niles Canyon train station in Sunol. Driving from San Jose take Hw 680 north; exit at Hwy 84 (2nd Calaveras Rd exit); lt on Paloma Way (Hwy 84); lt on Niles Canyon Rd (Hwy 84); rt on Main St into and through Sunol; rt and lt into the station's parking lot.
