Biketoberfest Shake Out Rides (Mike D, Helen, Margie & Dagmar)

Choose among FOUR different road rides to work up your thirst and appetite for Biketoberfest.  Option 1 is a leisurely out and back to Samuel P Taylor Park.  Option 2 is a social-paced loop to Platform Bridge.  Option 3 is a moderate-paced loop to Pt Reyes Station/Bear Valley.  Option 4 is a brisk-paced loop with Marshall Wall.

Options 2, 3, and 4 all ride out Sir Francis Drake Blvd to Nicasio and then to Pt Reyes Petaluma Road .  The routes split just before mile 13.  So, if you start with Option 4, Marshall Wall, and the group is too fast for you, wait and ride with the Option 3 riders.  If you start with Option 3, Pt Reyes Station/Bear Valley loop, and the group is too fast for you, wait and ride with the Option 2 riders.

All rides meet at 8:45 am in front of the Marin Museum of Bicycling.  Sign in, meet your fellow riders, then hit the road at 9 am.

 All rides end at the Marin Museum of Bicycling, where there will be secure bike parking.  If possible, ride to the start or carpool as parking can be difficult in Fairfax.
