In January and February 2011, the DBC put together an 8-week series of relaxed and supportive rides to encourage interested members to come out and climb progressively more challenging hills. The goal was to climb Mt Diablo on the last session.

We tried to de-emphasize the typical obsession on mileage and elevation gain (although that info is listed here for ride planning purposes). We kept each ride to about 30 miles; we tried to keep the climbing gradient in the 5-8% range.

Here is a list of the rides from the clinic, with links to each map and cue sheet.
