The Ultimate Sunday Bike Ride: The Marin Headlands Loop

The Ultimate Sunday Bike Ride: The Marin Headlands Loop

We know there's an entire universe of world-class biking beyond San Francisco. That's why we're enlisting the experts at Studio Velo, hands-down one of the Bay Area's best bike shops, to give you the lowdown on what's hot and what's new in the cycling world.

Offering one of the most spectacular views of the famous Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, this relatively short pedal is a must-do Bay Area ride. Recently paved and with some bike lanes on the principal climb, the Headlands Loop from Studio Velo provides a perfect recovery ride but with some standard Marin climbing. Starting at Studio Velo offers a nice 15 minute warm-up before you begin to climb out of Sausalito. Don’t miss a stop at Cibo cafe on Bridgeway (@ Pine St.) on the way back for some of the best espresso and pastries in the Bay Area.
