Ride to the Bakery. Mill Valley, Fairfax, Nicasio to Pt Reyes Station for a food stop at mile 30. Return over Olema hill. Features a beautiful descent through the Redwoods of Samuel Taylor State Park. The easiest ride in the series with the best (a four-way tie) food.
This classic and popular Marin route starts in Mill Valley, and then climbs the Mt Eden of the North: Camino Alto. From there it wiggles its way north through Larkspur, Ross, San Anselmo, and Fairfax. Then over Whites Hill to Nicasio and Pt Reyes Station for lunch. Faster riders can stop at Emporio Rulli in Larkspur for a traditional double-espresso before reeling in the group as it threads its way north. Popular lunch options: Bovine Bakery, Cowgirl Creamery, or pick up a sandwich at the Pt Reyes Market. There are many options, possibly even street food. This ride features several lovely sections though redwood forests and some friendly descents as well as moderately challenging climbs.
Special instructions: The ride travels out to the coast. Be prepared for sunny and foggy weather on the same ride. The ‘Wiggle’ north and south can be confusing. Be sure and take a cue sheet, use a GPS, or stick with somebody who knows the way. This is a popular area for cycling, and the local police pay attention. Driving time from the south bay can vary with traffic. Cheese-o-philes should bring a musette bag or suitable luggage to carry home their purchases.
