Chapeau 55th Marin Century!
Published on: 8/7/2017
Our 2017 Marin Century, August 5, drew some 2,300 riders—including 130 or so Mt Tam Double riders—and was staged by more than 200 volunteers, led by ride director Lorrain Trautwein with the assistance of some seasoned Marin Cyclist event veterans. It’s hard to know whether the scenic courses or the post-ride feast was a bigger hit, but one thing’s for sure: we saw a lot of smiling faces at the finish.
