Group Ride Details:
The Marin County Bicycle Coalition is proud to announce the 7th Annual MCBC Dirt Fondo, an all-day mountain bike ride on Saturday, August 18 raising funds for MCBC's Off-Road Program. We encourage bicyclists of all skill levels to join us on one of the most spectacular and challenging off-road bicycle rides in the Bay Area!
The ride starts in the Marin Headlands (Golden Gate National Recreation Area), just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The 45-mile route takes cyclists on a journey that climbs and descends a number of ranges before an ascent to the top of Mt. Tamalpais. After stopping to take in the amazing views, riders will continue on a loop around the mountain before rolling back to the Headlands for a grand BBQ feast.
We encourage all interested parties to test their abilities. There will be turn-back options at the 5, 10 and 16 mile marks, creating loops of 10, 20 and 32 miles. Participants have most of the day to complete the ride.
There will be great support along the journey, including a number of well-stocked energizer stations, ride leaders and sweeps, radio communication and SAG support, and mechanics to help with minor repairs.
