Bear Mt Tam Fondo – 511 Contra Costa

Bear Mt Tam Fondo

The route is a climber’s delight, featuring some of the very best road riding Mountain Tamalpais has to offer. CHP escorts will lead riders up over Shoreline Highway before opening things up for a scenic descent down to the coast. Riders will then head north up the coast through quaint Stinson, CA before turning right and pace lining around Nicasio Reservoir. Pace lines will definitely come back together on Sir Francis Drake Blvd heading into Fairfax. In Fairfax, riders will catch the world renown Bolinas Fairfax Blvd for a spin around Alpine Lake and up from Alpine Dam. Ascending up onto Ridgecrest Blvd for panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Stinson Beach, Farallon Islands, San Francisco and jagged coastline from the route affectionately known as the Seven Sisters. At Rock Springs, riders will begin their descent back to Tam Junction for a taco lunch amongst friends at Proof Lab Station. This is a difficult route for experienced and fit cyclists.
