Assemble at Ferry Building Plaza, Saturday, June 9, 2012, 7;30 am, departure at 8 SHARP!
This day trip fund raiser cruises up the coast and offers a great change of scenery at a relaxed pace. A perfect jaunt for those looking for their first "ambitious" bike ride—you can do it! And Marin will be forever within your reach as a cycling destination!
We'll meet at the San Francisco Ferry Building Plaza and ride north across the Golden Gate Bridge to visit Fairfax during their annual Fairfax Festival. This 22-mile ride and takes just under three hours at a reasonable non-roadie pace.
We'll arrive in Fairfax by 11, in time to catch some of the little town's famous parade. After indulging in music, beer, bbq oysters, roasted corn, tie-dye, and crafts under the redwoods, you may choose between two options for the return: either a short (40-minute) cycle over to the Larkspur Ferry, or for the more ambitious, a return 22-mile ride retracing our route. There will be leaders to return both ways—the group does not need to reach concensus! If you choose to take the ferry, you will need to purchase your own ticket at the terminal or have a Translink Card.
