SF-Sausalito-Tiburon-Paradise Loop ride
3 starting spot options available...
Looking to avoid inland heat and get in a scenic ride? Starting from the Embarcadero BART station in San Francisco, we'll ride along the Embarcadero and across the Golden Gate Bridge. From the Marin County side of the bridge, the route will take us down to historic Fort Baker and on through Sausalito to Tiburon. We'll stop for lunch/drinks/etc. at Woodland's Market (~mile 22.6). After lunch we'll continue on to the Paradise Drive loop and reconnect with the SF Bay Trail in Corte Madera, riding back through Sausalito and back over the bridge to our starting point.
Meet near the "Trolley-Bus Flower Shop" at the corner of Market and Spear streets, Google Map link: https://goo.gl/maps/xdDBnetUW2B2QLXm9
Distance: ~50 miles. Shorter options available, see "NOTES" section
Pace: 13-15 mph when rolling on flats, higher/lower speeds when going uphill/downhill. There are hills on this route, please check route profile.
1.) The actual route taken may vary slightly from the route posted. For example, we may choose to avoid the pedestrian path along the Embarcadero, instead riding on the street and/or bike lanes to avoid the afternoon crowd on the waterfront path.
2.) The route will be a mix of street and bike paths. Not all streets have a dedicated bike lane and/or shoulder and riders should be experienced riding on roads shared with vehicular traffic.
3.) Rides shorter than 50 miles may be achieved by:
a.) Meet us at the Sports Basement parking lot on Mason St. (~mile 4.6). ETA 10 AM, be "ready to roll" on our arrival. 40 miles total ride
b.) Meet us in the parking area adjacent to the SF Bay Trail on Gate 6 1/2 Road in Sausalito just past Mike's Bikes (mile 12.9). ETA 11 AM, be "ready to roll" on our arrival. 26 miles total ride
c.) taking the ferry from Tiburon back to SF
