Stinson beach up Bolinas through Seven Sisters and back
Roger Thomas is the host for this ride and has put together the following description:
This is an awesome ride, that takes us through the scenic Marin County.
Starting at the Golden Gate we ride out to Saulsalito and on to Old Mill Park.
Here begins the first major climb as we ascend up to four corners, from here there is some more ascending and descending as we take the beautifully scenic state route 1 all the way to Stinson Beach.
Here we will stop for fluid and energy replenishment.
We then continue on the 1 with some flat riding towards Bolinas where we take a right on to the Bolinas Fairfax road.
This is an intense category 2 climb up to the beginning of Seven Sisters. We then ride Seven Sisters and on to descend back in to Mill Valley. From here we take the Bike path back to Saulsalito with the last bit of climbing taking us up to the GG bridge and over.
Total distance of ~90km with ~5000 feet of elevation.
There is some intense climbing on this route.
Flat pace - Moderate (14 - 16 mph)
Climbing pace - (Whatever pace you can manage, we will regroup after every climb (directions on climbs is very straight forward))
Meet 9.45 am. Roll at 10.00 am
We will be stopping quickly at Mikes Bikes in Mill Valley at the beginning of the bike path to join with some more Bay Area Cycling riders.
