Bay Area/San Francisco - Need 40-80 mile route for tomorrow

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bay Area/San Francisco - Need 40-80 mile route for tomorrow

I'm looking to do 40-80 tomorrow and I'm very new to the area. I don't have time to consult a bike shop and i'm having trouble finding resources online. Can anyone recommend a good route and/or point me to a website?

thanks

I'm in SF. I think I'm going to do the Tiburon loop. 60 miles if you start in Daly City.
