I'm going to spin out for some miles. I was going to ride from Santa Clara, out to Foothill Expy, up to Canada, the North past Sawyer's Camp, down Bunker Hill, up Polhemus, then back. Possibility of riding to Roberts, and meeting a bunch of folks.

I'm thinking maybe Mt. Tam from Sports Basement on Saturday. Would there be any takers for this, and who can find a good bikely route. I am apparently not smart enough to work the search on that site.

This would be Pete's milk run. He can do this one blindfolded (and probably does, for all we know).

Ignore the SF section and the middle loop in the Marin Headlands, and it's the 'standard' route to Tam.

Probably will work for me. After the cold and general misery of Saturday's ride I'm ready for hot weather.

I've never done Dalewood. Is it as bad as the local (to me) steep ones like Summit Springs, Crestview, or Club?

Regarding Saturday, I should be in for a Marin ride. If it was just me I'd probably start at Sports Basement and head directly north (no SF hills) for something like this:

https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=2791652

This goes counterclockwise with lunch in Bolinas (or possibly Stinson Beach) and returns on Hwy 1. It'd be 72 miles with about 6000' of climbing. But I'd be open to other routes too

From what I saw of it (I skipped it that day), it's like Summit Springs steepness (the steep section), but for like 1/4 mile or so.

I like the headlands and SF hills part... maybe just skip the true summit up-and-back on Tam, if time is getting short. Lunch can be in fairfax, I guess (light due to tam being right after).

Since for the rest of this month I'm fully involved in training on the fixed gear for the LA ride, I'm thinking about riding out to PT. Reyes, then you guys would have the option to do Tam. It would have to be a 9am start though. Anyone interested?...

Hah. See, this is why I ask for the "regular" route. Someone puts up a link with some crazy (knee-cartilage destroying) hills and suddenly the train has left the station!

I could do a 9am start.

That just means we'd have to do Dalewood BEFORE meeting @ 9am. No problem!

<Can you tell I really want to climb Dalewood again?>

Ramon, how long does the SF part take again? We could do that before 9AM

Chris, the regular route should still include the headlands though... It's not too hard, and the scenery is A+++

I'm all for whatever the group decides. I am all confident after the WCC.

How about the SF Twin Peaks/Dalewood after the Tam ride?

The SF route pre-tam warmup adds probably two hours, pretty early wake up call on a Saturday.

I don't want to go to SF before 9am!

Also, I remember the last time you said a route had A+++ scenery!

It was a good joke. The clouds absolutely obscured anything beyond like 50ft, the rain drops made everything else blurry. The gusts of wind and cattle guards made the descent extra exciting.
