This is a gorgeous and challenging ride featuring 5,000 feet of climbing and finishing with a spectacular descent down Meyer's Grade to Route 1 into Jenner. The route is challenging along remote country roads - and rewarding for strong T riders.

Important: Bring plenty of liquid and food. One possible water stop just past the half way point may or may not be available and no real food options once we pass Cazadero about 5 miles in. There will be an optional stop at Aquatica Cafe in Jenner (about five miles before the end of the ride) to refuel with some creamy hot chowder. Park on B Street in Duncan's Mills.

Ride out to Pinole, along San Pablo Dam Road and Pinole Valley Road.  Our goal is to get some riders who may cringe at riding the hilly 'bears route'; but who would like to do about 30 miles to maybe get back into riding again. Planned destination is the Bear Claw Cafe, a quaint, old-timey family bakery in downtown Pinole, with a visual historical treat in the alcove next to the building. Faster riders are welcome, too...just save me a Bear Claw! Bring a friend. Optional lunch at Orinda Square (Petra's Greek Cafe, Europa Hof-Brau, Nation's burgers, Subway, Peet's and Starbucks). https://ridewithgps.com/routes/14580950.

We'll cycle mostly off city streets on paved multiuser trails in Corte Madera and nearby towns stopping at marshes, creeks and ponds to view ducks, shorebirds, and passerines.

Bring binoculars, field guides, snacks, and wear layered clothing.  This birding ride is co-listed with Golden Gate Audubon. Helmets required. Any threat of rain cancels.

Directions: from Berkeley or San Francisco: get onto Hwy 101 (south from the Richmond Bridge, north from SF) and exit Paradise/Tamalpais Drive; go west approximately 1/2 mile and turn right on Pixley Ave and almost immediately right into the parking lot. Let's reduce our carbon footprint - if you need or can OFFER a ride, call Jeffrey.
