Red Whale Groad Ride 37mi/+1,500'

The route goes along the Hamilton Wetlands on smooth as butter gravel.  Then we head on the road up to College of Marin Campus for a sweet little section of wooded gravel.  We will ride along San Marin, cross 101 then frolick through Rush Creek fire roads and a little easy single track.  We will snake along the road to Doctor Insomniac's for a coffee break.  The end will be on pavement back to the starting point.

It's a great way to spend your Sunday morning.
