Well kids it may be important to plan your hunts. The best pizzas are made by Italians (or people who own restaurants with Italian sounding names). That being said I could not find a small pizza shop open after a cool morning ride up Mt Diablo (http://inl.org/cycling/rides/mount-diablo/). After leaving North Gate and riding to the top, I rode back down through South Gate and into Danville. I had coffee at Starbucks and cruised the drag (no pizza). I rode the Iron Horse Trail back into Walnut Creek, went through part of town (no pizza) and ran into Walnut Blvd which I remembered seeing on my way to North Gate. I learned after a few extra mile of climbing there is also a Walnut Avenue which (not Walnut Blvd) leads to North Gate. Long and short of it is that I found no pizza and ended up eating Pho for Christmas Lunch. Next year: Better Planning.
