SF/Bay Area Cycling Landmarks | 34 miles, 3100' climb

                                      View from Hawk Hill


34 miles.  3100' climb.  Some rollers.  Two long climbs.  Two steep descents.  Pace 14-16 MPH on the flats.  10 minute wait at the top of steep climbs. (waiting for me!)  This is a social ride, not a race!  No sweeper.

We will visit some famous cycling landmarks of the Bay Area:  GGB, Hawk Hill, Sausalito, The Presidio, Inspiration Point, The Panhandle and "The Wiggle."  There will be views, views, views, if we have decent weather.  Even the fog shrouded Bay is beautiful.  We will ride along as many of the bike paths and lanes in SF as possible including the famous "Wiggle" and complete the loop back to the Ferry Building.

Meet:  9:30 AM  Roll:  9:45 AM sharp

                                            SF Presidio

                                          Inspiration Point

Lunch Stop:  Venice Deli or others in Sausalito for an outdoor picnic.

Bring:  Spare tube, helmet, snacks, water, lytes, cameras, action!

Organizer Fee:  2.00

    Fun ride today guys! Did anyone happen to keep track of the elevation gain/mileage on their Garmin/Tomtom/etc.? If so, could you please post? Thanks!

    Thanks so much for coming on the ride today~seriously, this one was the BEST groups of cyclists ever! So friendly, gelled and considerate. If you didn't notice, we inadvertently did an extra climbing loop! You are awesome-hope to see you again soon :)

    Hi Cyclists, I'm sending you an email with my cell #. We have about 20+/- people from Bay Area Cycling, so it should be a fun-sized group!

    Hi, how steep are the descents and are they on mountain roads? I have an old road bike and I am not good at too technical descents...

      Hi Sasha. This is purely a paved road ride. There are 3 steep ascents/descents. The first one is very steep and you must have excellent brakes in my opinion. You can skip that part if you want, but it'll take us close to an hour to complete that circle. It also goes through a narrow tunnel, so you have to be comfortable with road traffic. I'd love you to join, but just be informed when deciding.
