Ride Code: 24-A-3

Join Greg and Laura for a ‘kinder, gentler‘ Tiburon loop! Starting and ending at Mike‘s Bikes at the south end of the Mill Valley-Sausalito Path instead of in SF cuts the mileage of the Jersey Ride in half to just 24 miles. This shortened route keeps the best part--Paradise Drive and Tiburon--and ditches the moshpit on the Golden Gate Bridge and the slog up Alexander, which is always into a headwind. Yes, you can east dessert first!

Ride Code: 40+-B-4
Bring your mtb, a smile, water and snacks, and let the rest come to you. We’ll enjoy Mother Earth while using our bodies and calming our minds. Plan to spend the day, but if you need to leave sooner, you’ll still have fun. Let’s start in Fairfax’s Deer Park and venture out on the Pine Mtn Loop, then either take San Geronimo Ridge to Sam Taylor State Park (water stop), or retrace our tracks to Deer Park (water stop) and then head up Sir Francis Drake and then up Loma Alta for some fun on T680 or Fox Hollow.

Hibernia Beach - the plaza in front of Bank of America at 18th and Castro

Ride Code: 3.5-B-4

Let‘s try something different. The pink triangle on the side of Twin Peaks, all lit up from dusk to dawn, is gorgeous. Let‘s ride our bikes up the hill at sunset and have a closer look at the light show from some different angles.

We’ll ride from Hibernia Beach (the plaza in front of Bank of America at 18th and Castro) in the Castro, and take mostly side streets up to Twin Peaks. We can expect anything from a gorgeous sunset to being engulfed by a fog and blasted by wind, and anything in-between - it is San Francisco in the summer! Dress accordingly!

June 23 is one of the longest days of the year (sunset is 8:35). But be sure to bring lights if you think you might want to linger at the top. Expect to take something like half an hour to forty-five minutes for the climb.

Time for a party! And not just any party but a rolling party...with donuts and coffee! Come celebrate Pride 2022 with a bicycle tour on the western side of San Francisco. Our all-inclusive Pride Ride starts at the Stow Lake Boathouse in Golden Gate Park. We‘ll head out the Great Highway and then circle Lake Merced before heading back to Stow Lake. Don‘t forget--the Great Highway is car free! That‘s a flat 15-mile ride. What? You want more riding, more riding, more riding? Well, rise and shine a bit earlier and we‘ll do a parade through the Castro and then up Twin Peaks to greet the Pink Triangle before heading back to Stow Lake to join the party people on the all-inclusive ride. That‘s about another 12 miles with about 1,000 ft. of climbing.
