Ride Report #33: Morgan Territory

Wow, it’s been over 6 months since I last updated this blog. It was party me being lazy, but also just a super busy year. Kids activities, visitors, travel and work have been keeping me very busy with very little time to ride. I did ride only a handful of times this year, but didn’t really get around to blogging about them.

So anyway, here is a new ride report. Morgan Territory is one of the most remote roads in the East Bay. It’s quite easy to get to from Fremont. A short ride over to Livermore and then take N. Livermore Ave to Morgan Territory.

N. Livermore Ave is a flat out straight road with farms on either side. There are great views on both sides. As you turn right on to Morgan Territory, the road climbs through a residential area and then enters the Regional Preserve. The road then narrows down to a single lane road which is very rough in some spots. There are lots of dips and rises, lots of tight blind turns. This is no road you want to ride at night! The road skirts the back side of Mt. Diablo (clearly visible) and then hits the small town of Clayton.

On our way back we stopped at Pyramid Alehouse in Walnut Creek.for a beer and a burger.

I hope I find the time to update this blog more frequently.
