Bodega Bay

  • Nov 2, 2013 · 7:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

On this last Saturday before the time change, we are going to Bodega Bay from SF. Roughly, route will include Cheese Factory, Wilson hill, Bodega Bay, Tomales Bay, and Point Reyes Station. Pace: slow 10-12mph. Non-hammering, ride at your own pace, with several wait & regroup stops along the way. Miles: approx 130.  Must be willing to stay together until we are all back in Sausalito again. Should bring lights. 


Rain cancels. 

------------

Hello to those who plan to join this ride on Saturday. The route we will follow will be similar to this below.  Please be prepared that it will be dark when we start and probably when we finish. This will be my first time doing this ride so it will be a bit of an exploratory ride also. Please come with some sense of adventure. If you have done rides with me before, you know I will be the last in the back. I will try to keep up as much as I can.   At least looks like it won't be raining. : )

    I am new to riding and completely intimidated by the length of this ride. Can anyone suggest a web site that has some training plans so I can work my way up to this distance? Thanks in advance for the help! :)

      I injured my thumb... Need some time before getting a good grip on the handlebars, especially the drops.

    Parking was an issue but I'm loving it... Still at the half way point though.

    November 2, 2013

  • David H.

    Good news ... I'm here. Bad news. All the parking is closed or 4 hour limit. Ummm. Suggestions???

      I'm a little unsure about where the exact meet point was, is the visitor's centre obvious/on the South side? Hopefully see you all there at 7am!

      November 1, 2013

    • Peter

      Yes should be very obvious. Should not be many people. Just us.

      November 1, 2013

  • Peter

    See you David and anyone else who shows up. Frankly I am uncertain how many will be there but we shall see. I have not been riding so have mercy.

      This looks super fun, but it's looking like I might have to back out, as I'll most likely be out of town this weekend now :(

      October 28, 2013

    • Peter

      No worries Ryan.

    Anybody interested in driving up the day before and leaving a car so that the ride is one way and a little more humane?

    October 28, 2013

    • Peter

      I wish I had scheduled this ride earlier in the year also. It will dark on leaving and returning to the bridge.

      October 28, 2013

  • Leland

    This is more than double my max, but I want to do it. Is there a map route out yet? How much elevation?

    October 27, 2013

    • Peter

      Sorry I don't have a route yet. I think you will be fine Laland. This will be my longest ride.

      October 28, 2013

  • vanessa

    When are we returning?

    October 27, 2013

    • Peter

      I suspect it will be, for me at least, after 8pm.

      October 27, 2013

  • Sammy Y.

    Hi everyone. I just joined. Just wanted to say a quick hi!

    October 27, 2013

  • Mark Haven B.

    This is a bit long for me even at a slow pace. See y'all next time. Have fun!

    October 21, 2013

  • Andy H.

    Are there water fill-up points along the way? Are people bring paniers/rucksacks for lunch or are we planning to eat at a cafe?

    October 18, 2013

    • Peter

      There will be a few stops along the way to buy coffee/snacks and refill water. Will probably have lunch at a cafe place in Bodega Bay.
