A few pics from Mt. Tam yesterday

For anyone interested, here are a few pics from a ride on Mt. Tam yesterday. I've been a bit out of the BF loop lately, but I hope to ride with you guys and gals again soon!

It starts by Marco's house in San Mateo. The long route is 33 miles, 4400' climbing. Every hill is steep pretty much from the get go.

That's some beautiful country - where abouts is Mt. Tam? Is this a state / national park? It looks like you had the road to your self. Fantastic.

Mount Tamalpais. It's just north of San Francisco. It's the birthplace of mountain biking.

Thanks BlastRadius. One of these days I'll ship my bike and myself out your way and take a run at those hills.

Nice pics! It looks like you rode down to Alpine Dam via Bo-Fax (or maybe up from there...) If you did, what's the condition of the road? Supposedly it is closed in a few places for the next couple months as they do repairs.
