In 2022 MCBC is launching a Women’s Fondo ride highlighting the great riding in West Marin and celebrating the amazing food, libations and rustic hospitality of the North Bay. And your registration helps support safer streets and better access for bikes in Marin! With route options of 25-miles, 38-miles and 62-miles, the event will cater to most capabilities, and all routes will include amazing scenery and great course support.
The event is hosted by Olema House located conveniently at the edge of Point Reyes National Seashore along Highway 1. Participants will be greeted with coffee and pastries before being led out on course for a great adventure. There will be rest stops along the way with a mix of traditional snacks and hydration as well as artisan treats from local producers. Good route markings and GPS routes will keep riders on course, and SAG vehicles will be available for anyone needing some extra help. Upon returning to Olema House, riders will be greeted by smiling faces, a gourmet lunch provided by Due West Tavern x Market, a variety of libations (including local wines), and live music within Olema’s sprawling creekside gardens.
