First time got to really utilize my first digital camera and Passion thread.

Do a ride called GG2MB, where a bunch of the Nor Cal folks ride from the Golden Gate Bridge to a local brewery, Marin Brewing Company. I retraced the route sort of\. Got some exploring in and got a little lost too. Weather was a perfect 50-ish degrees with lots of sun, got to love California weather.

Rode from Bridge up Mt. Tam and down it, good ride and great day. Enjoy!

Nice ride! I'm going out to San Francisco in April for the NCUR conference at Dominican. I hope I can see some of these sites while I'm there :)

Good stuff.
Thats one of my favorite rides ever, not a lot of epic singletrack(or any at all), but nice climbing, epic views, riding over the GG Bridge is awesome. I used to ride from my place at 5th and Fulton through the Presidio and do that. I'd usually turn around at the stables and head back up that fireroad on the other side.
Miwok Trail...I used to call that the Soul Cleanser on Sunday am rides.
Nice pics, thanks.

Around 30+ miles.

Judd97 there is some killer singletrack right behind Dominican, let me know when you come.
Shhh! Don't tell!

Just kidding. :D Second that, you can ride over to China Camp directly from Dominican. You can also check out Tamrancho, which is about 15 minutes (by car) down Miracle Mile/Sir Francis Drake.

That top section of Tenderfoot isn't that bad after you've ridden it enough (climbing up it is even more interesting). You should hit up Zig Zag if you like Tenderfoot. Tenderfoot up, Zig Zag down.

I'd love to check those places out, but unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to bring my bike. Are there any places to rent? I'm not sure how much time/money I'll have while I'm over there, but hopefully I'll find some of both :)

Thanks for the tips, fellas!

Nice post! Glad you are enjoying the camera. Will be out your way for the Tour of California. I'm envious of your ride and weather. Here near Boulder Colorado we usually have great riding year round. Not this Winter.



This is how I've been spending my time for the past 6 weeks!!
