Observe the Windmills of Altamont from your saddle on this easy tempo ride through the beautiful foothills of Livermore overlooking the San Joaquin Valley. We depart from Robertson Park in Livermore and head north on Greenville towards Altamont Pass Road. Once on Altamont, you’ll twist and turn through the windmill adorned foothills. After a quick Jaunt through the west end of the valley we hit Patterson and the ascend the Cat 2 climb on Patterson Pass Road. Like Altamont, the hills surrounding the road are covered with windmills. Upon reaching the summit, you’ll be rewarded with one hell of view worthy of a selfie or two. We then descend back down into Livermore via Tesla Rd. ending back up where you started at Robertson Park.
