You are encouraged to ride 'back to back' this weekend, and so we are offering a repeat (remember the Cheese ride?) 60 mile route for Sunday, in the hopes that you'll get some good mileage in on Saturday. With just 14 days from this event until we ride out of Cow Palace, this is your last big weekend of training.
Follow the above link to check out the route and RSVP for the ride.
The Seventeenth ride in our series repeats ride # 8 (a favorite) taking us over familiar territory out to Fairfax, and over Whites Hill to Lagunitas, our first stop of the day. Continuing west, we take the Samuel P Taylor bike path, then tackle the Olema Hill (the easy way) and after a picturesque detour arrive at Point Reyes, where we will enjoy the a rest stop at the Bovine Bakery or Cowgirl Creamery (your choice!).
Leaving Point Reyes we head around the top side of the Nicasio Reservour, and head to the Marin Cheese Factory. A right at Novato Boulevard takes us on a glorious nine mile (mostly) downhill, to a third rest stop at Noah’s Bagels (get the Asiago Bagel, or head next door to Tagiafierri’s for Pecorino). Heading south, we’ll return via three sections of bike path (with an optional stop at the Panera Bread for something cheesy), back to Hal Brown.
This ride offers wonderful scenery, the ever-popular route around Stafford Lake, and Cheese galore!
