Vince Cummings and Brian Chun biked from home and then merged at Landess and Morrill Rd. @ 6:15 am, starting from Milpitas, taking short stops in Livermore, Carnegie motocross park, and the Patterson Jack in the Box on Sperry Rd. Russ left much later with the Reverse Hamilton Challenge group (Sheila, Hoags, Guy, Kryia, Ken Emerson, McGeoughs) to overtake Brian at Del Puerto Canyon @ mile ~20 and later catching Vince, then passing Brian again along Isabel canyon after stopping with Vince at the Junction.

Brian climbed with and then changed a soft tube at the closed Lick Observatory (locked shut, no restrooms or soda machine access), arriving much later after Russ and Vince, then went home with Safeway and Taco Bell stopovers. Cold evening San Jose winds, total time a whopping 1600 hrs for 178 miles (home start) 8709′ with the last 2 miles of Mt. Ham backside at hiking, not biking, speed.
