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.

The many back roads of West Marin County offer up almost limitless route choices and accommodate all types of riding preferences. On this ride you’ll have a chance to ride over and along the two largest ridges that define Marin’s western geography, with each straddling a side of the famous San Andreas earthquake fault. The ride combines a fairly easy, rolling hill beginning with a couple of classic Marin climbs for a challenging ending. You’ll get outstanding views of the Pt. Reyes National Seashore and the Golden Gate Nation Recreation Areas.
