In Silicon Valley? Try the Three Peaks Challenge!

Vespa Los Gatos will once again hold its Three Peaks Challenge on August 7, 2010:
VCLG’s 3-Peaks Challenge
(Open to all motorized-scooters: Vespa, Lambretta, Honda, Suzuki, Aprilia, Piaggio, Velocifero, etc)

It’s that time again!

Vespa Club Los Gatos is throwing it’s annual challenge to climb all three Bay Area peaks in a single day.
  • Mount Hamilton
  • Mount Diablo
  • Mount Tamalpais
Can you and your scooter withstand our time-honored tradition to ride around the SF Bay (literally).

This is not a race, but you do have to keep moving to complete the challenge before nightfall. We will pause to regroup from time to time but each rider should be prepared to navigate the course without aid from others.

We start at Alum Rock Family Restaurant in San Jose (2920 Alum Rock Ave.) and finish atop Mount Tamalpais.

Meet-up for Breakfast at 7:00am
Riding starts at 8:00am
(We highly recommend fueling-up before meeting for breakfast, as the majority of us WILL LEAVE AT 8AM SHARP)

We will break for lunch between 12p and 2p, near the Marie Callender's and Genova Delicatessen & Ravioli in Walnut Creek (S. California Blvd. & Olympic Blvd.)

Route information is available for those who feel they may lag and/or fall behind. There will not be a support truck for this ride, so you will more-or-less be on your own should your ride encounter any issues.

We expect this to be an all-day event. Do not expect to finish atop Mount Tam earlier than 4pm if you have something else to do.
