Climbing Marin County’s Mount Tamalpais has been a cycling challenge since bicycles began rolling over the first paved roads up this fabled mountain.
Thinking of taking a long bike trip? Wouldn’t it be great if someone planned the entire thing for you—from choose the best route, to booking your hotels to finding you the best bike for the trip? That’s the premise of a new pop up store in the Mission.
Mount Diablo is one of the dominate features of the Bay Area landscape, visible from each of the surrounding nine bay counties. It’s one of a trifecta of local summit ascents that every climber should commune with on a regular basis.
This ride can be a varied experience depending on your approach and riding goals, whether you are training or seeking a laid back recreational outing. It provides enough vertical to a make it challenging if you up the pace but it’s the lack of vehicular traffic and the sublime beauty of Sonoma dairy farms that make this a delightful countryside tour regardless of your cycling aspirations.
