Good evening,
Here is the new and updated route (Tuesday, 25 June, 7:43 p.m.)

China Camp and Paradise Loops

This 45-mile route combines two popular loops close to home. Begin at McNear’s Beach in San Rafael where there are bathrooms and free parking. From here, we will begin a counterclockwise loop around China Camp State Park, cut through the city of San Rafael and make our way towards Paradise Drive. Lunch will be at mile 27 in Tiburon’s shoreline-park- with- a- view next to the Angel Island Ferry Terminal and Café Acri. After lunch we will complete the Paradise loop and head back to McNear’s Beach via Point San Pedro road. A special bonus for the contemplative and the loquacious is breathtaking outdoor seating at Andy’s Market near the end of our journey (mile 43). Consider stopping for a cool beverage and end-of-the-ride conversation with your Grizzly bike buddies.

Bring water, snacks and lunch. Café Acri has some assorted foodstuffs.

Rain, fire/smoke and extreme weather cancels: check here for updates

Meet at McNear’s Beach at 10 a.m. Roll at 10:15 a.m.

We’ll provide the miles you bring the happy smiles.

Release of Liability

Waiver and Release of Liability, Assumption of Risk Agreement, Parental Consent Agreement with Indemnity, and Other Agreements

This is a Release. When you agree to it, you forever give up certain rights to sue the persons and entities referred to in this Release. READ IT CAREFULLY.

"Grizzly Peak Cyclists", "GPC" and "the club" refer to Grizzly Peak Cyclists, Inc., a California Nonprofit Mutual Benefit Corporation, or its successor organization in the event that it should reorganize, merge, or change its name.

In return for being allowed to participate in any activity by Grizzly Peak Cyclists, Inc.:

  1. I acknowledge that I and other participants may be engaging in activities that involve risk of serious injury to me, including viral and bacterial infections, other communicable illnesses, permanent disability, and death. I understand that these risks may be increased through my own actions, or through the negligent action or inaction of Grizzly Peak Cyclists members or representatives. I therefore assume all risks of injury or loss, even if caused in whole or in part by the negligence of Grizzly Peak Cyclists, its members, or other representatives.
  2. I release from liability Grizzly Peak Cyclists, their officers, members, sponsors, and employees; and owners and lessors of facilities used by Grizzly Peak Cyclists, for any injury or damage that I may incur as a result of their activities, even if caused in whole or in part by their negligence.
  3. California Civil Code section 1542 states: 'A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.' I specifically waive the terms of that section, and agree to release claims that I may not yet know of, or which may be based on events that have not yet occurred.
  4. If I am allowing children under the age of 18 to participate in any activity, I agree on their behalf to the terms of this Release. I agree that if, notwithstanding this Release, I, the minor, or anyone on the minor's behalf makes a claim against any of the persons or entities Released, I will indemnify those persons and entities and hold them harmless against all expenses, damage or costs, including attorneys fees, arising out of that claim.
  5. I recognize that GPC is built on the efforts of its volunteers. If, in the course of performing volunteer service for Grizzly Peak Cyclists, I provide or develop any software, procedures, data, maps, cue-sheets, artwork, or other material in which I have any ownership or copyright rights, I grant to the club license to copy, modify, retain and use such material in perpetuity for its purposes without compensation either implicitly by this agreement or by any compatible explicit license. Such grant is not needed for presentations or writings intended for one-time use, such as meeting presentations or items sent to the newsletter.
