Maps

Full color water resistant maps will be provided to all registered riders in their rider packets (for Concierge customers) or at the registration/packet pick up area on the morning of the ride.
RWGPS maps will be made available when the routes are finalized.  Follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter for updates.

Course Markings

Routes will be marked with (road) route arrows. However, the most reliable directions can be found on the reverse side of the map. The color of your route map and cue sheet will match the color of the course markings for your particular route. The tentative course colors (please check posted maps on ride day)are as follows:

Route Arrow Color
Half-Metric Century Blue
Metric Century Yellow
Double-Metric Century Orange
Marin Century Classic Green
Mt. Tam Century Purple
Mt. Tam Double Century Pink
Additionally, changes in direction will be marked with white signs at intersections. In recent years we found someone had removed a number of signs on the course. Signs are only an aid.

Lane Controls

For rider safety, CHP officers will be enforcing the following temporary lane controls (not road closures) to allow cyclists to pass:

  • 6:30-9 AM: Westbound lane on Lucas Valley Road from west of Westgate to Big Rock
  • 7:30 -10 AM: Northbound lane on Pt. Reyes-Petaluma Road from north of Nicasio Valley Road to the top of Rocky Hill
