    Tam Experts, Help me out please

    Planning on a early Saturday afternoon ride up Tam. Not sure what would be the quickest route to go. This is just an assault on the mountain. An up and down, if you will.

    My question is this, where the heck should I park to do this?

    Looking for a chateau. Twenty-one rooms but one will do. I don't want to buy it. I just want to rent it for an hour or two.

    Well, I'm hardly an expert but I'll give my 2 cents. If I drive there, I like to park in Fairfax (there's a free lot right in the "downtown" area) and head up Bolinas-Fairfax road. This guy has a pretty thorough description:

    Good question. It's going to be a road ride on Sat.

    If I were in town, I'd join you. Oh well ... bad timing. You doing Marin Century, or is that too easy, and you doing Mt. Tam Double?
    I'm in it to finish it.
