Cycling 4 Veterans Saturday, October 6, 2018
Hosted by Veterans First Program at Las Positas College and the C4V volunteer group organizers. As a veterans and military supported event, C4V is leading the way in Northern California, and again this year they are featuring three epic rides for 30 miles, 55 miles and 115 miles! Due to the routes, we have also enlisted the help of Stanislaus Amateur Radio Association.
Radio communications along some of the routes are challenging, and your help is appreciated..

Devil Mountain Double Century Saturday, April 27, 2019
The Devil Mountain Double Century is a 205 mile, one day bicycle ride with 20,000 feet of climbing that attracts the strongest of riders. LARK members provide logistics and keep track of the position of riders. Due to the length of this ride, it travels into more remote areas where cell phones just don't work. Ham radio provides that vital link in the event of emergencies as well as communicating back to the ride headquarters. The ride starts and finishes in San Ramon. The route includes Mt Diablo, Morgan Territory Rd, Mines Road, Mt. Hamilton, Calaveras Rd, Niles Canyon, and Palomares Canyon. Some locations can be operated with just an HT, and there are even indoor opportunities at Net Control at the San Ramon Marriott. LARK has supported this event since its beginning in 1996.
