The Marin Cyclists put on the event year after year because our riders (you) love the course, the support and the challenge. It is our goal to encourage individuals to participate in these rides. Riding any of these courses requires training and mental determination so we have set up a series of rides to help. The courses are all fun but the level of fun is usually in a relationship to your level of conditioning and training.
 
The Marin Cyclists can now help you train for your next run at the Marin Century Courses and even the Mt Tam Double Century to make them absolutely the most fun for you.

100K (60 MILES)
The Marin 100K is a 60 miles course with 3830 feet of hill climbing. If you are a regular bicyclist, you can most likely ride this without turning your life upside down. There is no scheduled training regimen for the 100K distance. However, if you are not a regular bicyclist, you can work your way up to the 100 K distance by joining our weekend rides as listed on our Website Ride Schedule Page.
 
The Marin Cyclists hosts these rides for members and any other interested party. If you join us for a ride and like it, go ahead and join the club!
 
These are weekly rides of varying distance, difficulty and speed to train and test your strength and resolve. If you have done the 100K distance before and find yourself curious about the 100-mile distance, consider the training program below. You will never know until you try it.
 
MARIN CENTURY (100 MILES)
The Marin Century is our flagship 100-mile course for more than 30 years. The course has 6250 feet of challenging hill climbs, rollers and fast technical descents.

 

MT TAM DOUBLE CENTURY (200 MILES)
The Mt Tam Double Century is not for beginners and your training should include many other centuries, double metric centuries and double centuries before you challenge yourself on the Mt Tam Double. This ride has 15,000 feet of climbs and involves lots of fun but technical riding.
 
 
Registering for any of the Marin Century Courses or the Mt Tam Double entitles you to the discount membership into the club. A mere $20 buys your membership for a full year!. Join the club and join the fun.
