Riding in/from San Francisco
Offroad or road?
Offroad – head over to Marin county, loads of trails. but watch out for mountain lions.
Road – Paradise loop. http://www.mapmyride.com/us/san-francisco-ca/paradise-loop-route-408760Posted 4 years ago
We’re off to SF for the last 2 weeks of August and it seems mad to not sample a bit of riding as I doubt I’ll get another chance.
I’ll be taking my shoes with me – possibly pedals as well and a set of riding kit with a view to renting a bike out there. ( might buy some new kit while we’re there if it’s reasonable value)
We’re staying in SF for 7 days to start with and I have mentioned that I might head out for a day on my own so I think I have a pass.
Anyone ridden out there – hints for where to rent, people to guide/ride with etc welcomed.Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember
You can catch the ferry from downtown to Larkspur. Then fire your bike on the bus (they all have front mounted racks) to Fairfax. That gets you to Repack country. Stay on the bus to Point Reyes Station, speak to Mike at Black Mountain Cycles and he’ll sort you out with some trails.Posted 4 years agokeppochMember
I rode at Camp Tamarancho near Fairfax when I went to SF at the end of a two week cycling holiday.
Certainly not the best riding of the trip but a fun blast in a good setting. We were quite fit and riding well by that point in the trip, it was funny to see the locals pushing themselves beyond their comfort zone on the descent as a pair of tourists threatened to catch them!
Don’t underestimate the time it will take you to get there from the city centre though.
China camp also seemed to get a number of mentions.Posted 4 years ago
We’re coming over Sat 17th August – I expect I’ll be looking to ride midweek – it’ll be flexible once we’ve done some family stuff.
I’ll get in touch when we’re there to sort something out.
I’m starting to get rather excited – Marin county and all the trails were the things of dreams back in the early 90’s. Hard to believe I’m actually going to ride the trails I read about and watched videos of.
