This is the official monthly club ride for all members (guests are always welcome). The ride offers different distance and level options where once a month all DSSF club members can get out, ride and socialize with the club. The ride starts from Peet's in the Castro. There are three options so you can go at your own pace and distance so please pick the appropriate option to your level of ability, we want to make sure you enjoy the day. The rides split and regroup in Tiburon where we have lunch together as a group. This ride is usually on the second Saturday of each month; however there are a couple of exceptions for special events (see the calendar).
Turn off at the end of the Sausalito bike path and go directly into Tiburon where the other riders will join you for lunch. You can ride back to San Francisco (or take the ferry to avoid climbing the Sausalito hill). This option is recommended for those who are newer to road cycling.
This is a real fun loop with spectacular views! From Sausalito you have a small climb over Camino Alto before you head out and around the Tiburon Peninsula. This ride is recommended for the intermediate rider or for those who don't feel like the more strenuous third option.
Split off from the group and make the climb up Conzelman in the Marin Headlands then climb up that small canyon, McCullough Road before heading back out to Sausalito to ride the Tiburon Loop. This is the faster paced, more advanced option with extra hills and mileage. Meet At: Peet's Coffee in the Castro (16th and Market Streets). Please arrive between 8:30am and 8:45am for ride sign-up. Ride leaves at 9:00am.
Let's show our Pride on Pride Weekend and Pink Saturday. Wear your Different Spokes jersey if you have one and join me for a 28 mile City loop, starting and ending in the Castro.
We'll start at Peet's in the Castro, ride north to the Presidio and then west along the coast to the Land's End Visitor's center for some amazing ocean views. Then back east on Cabrillo St before making a U-turn and heading west thru beautiful Golden Gate Park. When we reach Ocean Beach, we'll head south on Great Highway, then along Lake Merced, and east to Glen Park for some well-deserved treats at Destination Bakery. Finally, we'll ride back through the Mission to Peet's. It's gonna be awesome!
