Tennessee Valley to the Sea Dirt Trail Ride | 6.5 miles 1000' gain (Marin)

Description: I have not done this ride, yet, but have hiked in the area.  I am working off a standard, suggested route.  This is not a hard-core mountain bike ride, but an advanced beginner trail ride with some good climb.  MTB, hybrids, cyclocross or road bikes with wider tires will probably work.  Leisurely pace.

Meet: 10:15 AM  Depart: 10:30 AM

Rest Stop: Picnic near the beach area, TBD.

Route: http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/438872084 

Bring: spare tube, helmet, water/lytes, snacks, lunch

    Thanks for coming out for the Tenn Valley debut "bike/hike" ride. Everything except the flat path to the ocean was new to me. Glad we had a mellow group who took their time and enjoyed the scenery!

    Hi Franny,
    I'm 90% sure I'm going. I just want to see what time I get home tonight before I confirm.
    Looks like great fun.
    I'm not sure if my hybrid bike/tires can take it, but, from pictures, looks OK.

      It'll be fine. I have 32 tires. And I'm walking what I can't do! It's my first after many years. I'm a roadie. Some are starting at GGB if you're interested.

      OK. I'll probably meet you at the trailhead parking lot.

    There's a contingent meeting at 9AM Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion at cement benches. You're all welcome to join us. It's about 8 miles to the trailhead.

    I'll be trying to riding up from Embarcadero on a hybrid. Do you know what time people are meeting at the bridge?

    Wish this was on a Sunday! My knees are up to the task now

      Yes, I'll keep Sunday in mind. Another guy who like to join often, can only do Saturdays! But anyway, the USA World Cup game is Sunday, the 22, so I want to watch that!
