RIDES

Marin County

Road & Gravel

  • RIDGECREST LOOP – One of the nicest road loops in the world! 33.17 miles | 3,721 ft elevation gain | Lakes, mountains, ocean vistas, San Francisco skyline and the Bay, and Golden Gate Bridge views. We strongly recommend riding this in a counter-clockwise direction to avoid the climbs up from Mill Valley on Hwy 1 that has little-to-no safe shoulder.
  • Our friends at Studio Velo in Mill Valley, CA are showcasing the incredible, world-class road riding in Marin County in this nice collection of rides on their website: MARIN’S CLASSIC LOOPS  Check them out!
  • Visiting San Francisco? Renting a bike from Blazing Saddles? Check out their Ride #4, the visit to Marin Museum of Bicycling. It’s all organized for you so you and your friends can have a really fun day complete with a visit to the museum and Fairfax, and ferry boat rides each way across the beautiful San Francisco Bay. You don’t have to have a rental bike from them, but they are a great bunch if you need bikes.

Mountain

Our friends at the Bay Area Mountain Bike Rides have compiled a nice collection of trail rides. Experience the fun of riding in the amazing Bay Area, where mountain biking was born. Click here for more info.

  • Camp Tamarancho. This is THE nicest, legal single-track in Marin. Owned and operated by the Boy Scouts of America, you need a day or an annual pass to enjoy this very fun 7.8 mile loop. Generally for intermediate to advanced riders only— Tamarancho is not a good ride for newbies. Click here for more info.
  • China Camp State Park. These trails are for beginners to expert and offer a wide variety of challenging terrains and beautiful vistas. Click here for more info.

A sad day for cycling, a legend amongst us has passed on. For 46 years Tony Tom and his "A Bicycle Odyssey" shop in Sausalito, California offered cycling fanatics the finest from around the world.

Join us on December 12th for a memorial ride around Paradise Drive in Tiburon. Meet at Dunphy Park across from A Bicycle Odyssey and be ready to leave at 10:00am. A celebration of Tony's life will follow afterwards back at the park. There's a new gofundme campaign to care for his mom Ruby and if you would like to contribute the link will appear after you sign up below.

Sign up for more info as it becomes available.
