GPC Epic Climbs September Challenge – Panoramic & Bolinas-Fairfax Road

This months challenge includes two classic climbs that can be completed on one bitesize but challenging ride. It starts at a Larkspur Lucky’s parking lot and climbs over the Corte Madera Avenue hill for a warm up before getting to Mill Valley where the real climbing begins. If the fog is at bay you’ll be treated to a spectacular view of the Marin Coastline from Panoramic Hwy and the descent into Stinson Beach. If you’re riding on a weekend, traffic can be substantial so be sure to keep to the right and let cars go by as you can safely do so. There is a small park with water and port-a-potties right across the street from the Stinson Beach Market. Be sure to fill up on water for the Bolinas-Fairfax road climb. Approximately 4.5 miles north of Stinson Beach turn right on Bolinas Road for a 4 mile 1500 foot climb. Unlike Panoramic, traffic is usually very light on Bolinas-Fairfax Road so this climb is quite peaceful. At the top you’ll be greeted by a majestic stand of redwoods which will tower over your descent into Alpine Lake. From top of this climb all the way to Fairfax the road is mostly in poor condition so take your time and avoid the many potholes.

SAT SEP 18 4!/TM/75 * From Cotati to the coast 
Leader: David Brown     (510) 508-4215
Leader: Alison Kuehner     (510) 219-3929
Meet at 8:45 am for a 9:00 am start
Optional pre-registration for members
UPDATE:

The NWS forecast predicts 50% chance of rain along the north coast (Jenner) on Saturday after 12:00. Rain is also predicted further inland and south, but not until late evening.

We will start the ride at the time and location as planned, and ride the route at least to the top of Joy road. Unless the predictions change, we will cut out the coastal loop by turning right on Coleman Valley road, picking up the route again in Occidental. This will be a ~50 mile loop. Lunch will be in Freestone.

Rain gear and lights recommended.

This route is a variation of a ride I did years ago with the yellow jackets, it's challenging but very scenic, with a wide range of terrain. Lunch will be at Duncans Mills, with rest stops in Valley Ford and Freestone. Joy Road is very steep and poorly paved, and much of the ride is remote without any services, so make sure your bike and you are prepared.

We will try a new start location, at LaPlaza Park in Cotati, where there are bathrooms, water, a coffee shop, see the rwgps for an exact location.

We will ride up to 20 flat miles from San Leandro BART (on city streets) to San Leandro Marina and down to Winton Ave on the mostly paved Bay Trail.

This is not a no-drop ride. We will ride at a T-pace, which is defined as 10-12 mph on the Three Bears Loop. Given the flatness of this ride, average moving speed will probably be ~13 mph. Faster riders will have to wait, and slower riders will get dropped.
