The Mount Diablo Challenge is a timed road bike ride to the summit of Mount Diablo. Mt. Diablo State Park will be closed to the public during the event to provide participants with a safe course to ascend and descend the mountain. Recreational riders are encouraged to set a personal best for the climb while competitive riders attempt the ultimate goal of finishing in under one-hour. Since maximum effort should be rewarded, a collection of great prizes awaits top finishers. Plus, a selection of other prizes and goodies will be awarded to winners in 16 different age categories. The oldest and youngest riders will also be recognized.
A new “Team Challenge” has been add to this year’s event. Now, after you register as an individual Road Bike participant you can also create a team, where you and a minimum of 3 of your friends can compete against other teams for the best combined time up the mountain. You make a team during your registration under the ‘Event Questions’ by creating a team name and indicating whether it is all Male, Female or Coed team. Then tell your friends to look for and join your Team when they are registering.
