Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, CA
Push off 8:15am sharp. I know that is early for many of us, but it is a long ride and it is getting dark early these days.
GGB/San Francisco to Mill Valley to 4 Corners to Muir Woods, then up Hwy1 to Point Reyes to Nicasio then back via White Hill and Camino Alto. Be prepared for climbs out of Mill Valley, on Hwy 1, White Hill and Camino Alto. Don't worry if you are not fast up hills - no one will get left behind and I am often the last one to the top of the hill. Expect a 10-12mph average pace and something in the neighborhood of 80 miles and at least 8 hours. We will stop for lunch, probably in Pt. Reyes, but bring plenty of snacks and water plus sunscreen, layers, spare tube and a lock.
Thank you to Peter G for suggesting this ride and finding a route map:
