Last weeks ride down south on the coast was a good one for the group. Sun and witnessing the massive surf coming in for Mavericks, capped off another great session, improving our fitness and riding skills.
This weekend, we’ll head North on Hwy 1 to add some varied terrain through Olema, and a good benchmark climb out of Muir Beach. Pacing, as always, is important so that you have the strength to take on the final climb with authority, instead of “surviving” the climb.
This route is 55 miles from Mill Valley, and 75 miles from the city for those looking for some extra work. The rolling terrain of Highway 1 allows for more group work, along with building your overall bike skills with gearing and pacing.
Taking on some more trails in Marin, the group will tackle the other side of Mt Tam by running our favorite Bon Tempe Lake loop. With routes from 8-11 miles, this is a great day to jump in on a very scenic area. The The gentle climb out of the town of Ross is perfect for a warmup, then the rolling and well maintained terrain provides a great environment to work on your endurance.
Our friends at Gu Energy have provided a good supply of water bottles. All in attendance at our run on Sunday will receive one! Thanks Gu!
