The Ultimate Sunday Bike Ride

Explore Rural Sonoma and Marin Cycling Valley Ford Road

Finding a new place to ride is one of the many delights of cycling. The rolling hills and dairy pastures of northwestern Marin County and southern Sonoma offer some of the best opportunities to meander through untraveled roads, find solitude, and admire classic California landscapes.

Coyote Hills Regional Park view

Unless you're a South Bay resident, this jewel of a park might be completely off your radar. Plainly visible across the San Francisco Bay from the Bayshore freeway, it's those hills you see silhouetted behind the San Mateo Bridge when driving south to SFO.

The Ultimate Sunday Bike Ride: Muir Beach Ridge

Sometimes ending an intense bike ride is much like hitting your thumb with a hammer—it feels good when you stop.

Amongst the Redwoods on Tunitas Creek Road

Sweeney Ridge Map

Today’s ride will be a test of your climbing legs as we venture to the top of one of the more little known areas of the GGNRA in San Mateo county, Sweeney Ridge.
