Bike ride Tilden Inspiration Point trail

It's a little hilly at times, not very long, invigorating, great view. A great couple of hours if we go slow and stop as often as we want to enjoy the view, drink water, and have a snack and chat. We would meet in the parking lot and begin at the Inspiration Point trailhead.

I can do a week day or weekend. Prefer beginning 10am ish so the light is good.

I have a tiny car and no bike rack, so I cannot car pool.

    About how many miles will you ride?

    • MarLene

      It's about four miles from the trailhead to the end. That latter couple of miles I find the most interesting. Sweeping views, and we might see cows...I am not an athlete, so I embrace stopping often to enjoy the views, stretch, drink water, etc. I may have to walk my bike on a couple of hills. I am open to the group consensus on how far we go - leave no woman behind!

    Hi Laura, I am new to the area and will be using my GPS to find this place. See ya in the parking lot. Do you have a cell number in case I get lost and run behind?

    • MarLene

      Kathleen: I'm not sure cells and GPS are reliable up there. You might print out directions just in case.

    Oops, I see that I have an appointment for Saturday that I'd forgotten about. I'll have to cancel. I hope we do this again soon.

    Still hoping to hook up with someone with a bike rack who can help me get my bike up the hill. Please let me know. [masked]. Thanks, Kerstin

      Hi all.. My Specialized bike is still on back order. I just had to have the yellow one as well as everyone else I guess. The bike shop said March.. Keep peddling and Ill catch up soon.

    Hi! I do not have a bike rack, so I would appreciate a ride. I live in Albany, just 1/2 a block off Marin which is a straight shot up to Inspiration Point. Thanks, Kerstin

    I'm interested but my weekends in January are booked. I have a truck so can car pool.

    January 17, 2014

    • MarLene
