From there, we’ll do the long loop and head to Muir Woods before turning back north on Hwy. 1 to Stinson Beach for lunch in the park. A quick roll along the lagoon will bring us to Bolinas-Fairfax Road and our return trip up and down and up and down the mountain back to Fairfax.

Parking is available a bit further up Bolinas Road near the police and fire stations. Post-ride recovery stop to be determined. Bring your climbing legs, it’s going to be epic!

SAT JUL 20 5/TM/66 Artichoke Bread Birthday Ride!
Leader: Jessica Jensen     (510) 508-6389
Meet at 9:00 am for a 9:15 am start
GPC Route: Half Moon Bay - Gazos Creek - Tunitas Creek Variations
Start Location: Half Moon Bay - Fire Station
Optional pre-registration for members

Hey hey hey party people! Come join me for my annual birthday ride up the coast and then back inland for some beautiful views, challenging climbs, rewarding descents...and the main attraction: delicious artichoke bread in the middle and of course birthday cupcakes at the end to celebrate with! 

Route description: Start off with the traditional and wonderfully scenic 20-mile roll down Hwy 1 for coastal views and a short visit to Pigeon Point Lighthouse, then a short sprint further south to Gazos Creek Road. Wax poetic on the gentle, lesser traveled spur up to South Fork Gazos Creek Road before rejoining Gazos Creek/Cloverdale Road to Pescadero to share a picnic lunch in the back yard of Norm's Market ("world famous" artichoke bread, sandwiches, pastries, coffees). Bucolic vistas meet nicely patched pavement along the pleasant but arduous climb up the old Stage Road with a (rolling) regroup in San Gregorio, continuing on Stage Road northward to Hwy 1. A quick and breezy descent along the highway to Tunitas Creek Road, regroup/refreshments at the Bike Hut and then up the flats and early climbs on Tunitas Creek Road until Lobitos Creek Road before cutting back toward the coast, sticking to back roads (Verde, Purisma Creek, and a final short, celebratory, leg-burning ascent up Higgins Canyon Road) with just enough rolling and flat miles on the home stretch back to Half Moon Bay to work out the lactic acid.

Leader: Karen Street     (510) 356-7081
Meet at 9:00 am
Start Location: Daly City BART
This is a placeholder ride for planning only. The leader needs to update it with more information.

August 24—3L44+ Daly City BART to Pigeon Point Hostel

August 25—2L28 to Santa Cruz hostel, and hanging around

August 26—2L53 to Monterey hostel

August 27—1L15-20 along 17 Mile Drive, visiting Monterey and return to Bay Area

We'll stay at Pigeon Point, Santa Cruz, and Monterey hostels. Reservations work better earlier rather than later. Let me know of your interest ASAP so I can change reservations. We may tweak with departure time according to needs, and BART schedules.

We’ll enjoy the coast (day 3 is inland), and stop for pictures, not set speed records.

The first day is the most difficult. You can cut miles and hills off by taking the bus to Montara hostel, or Half Moon Bay.
