Welcome to the Marin Marauders Training Group Fall Follies Sunday training series.  The Fall Follies are designed to give us some cycling exercise during the winter months. Each week we will choose a different route though Marin with the intent at helping you stay in shape and possibly learn some new tips and tricks! The routes through Marin are perfect for preparing for the ride and are a great opportunity for new cyclists as well as returning cyclists getting back on their bikes. We start each ride at Hal Brown Park in Greenbrae / Kentfield. All AIDS/LifeCycle official training rides are an inclusive and safe space welcoming ANY and ALL, regardless of skill level or cycling pace. 

The 7th ride in our series takes us over familiar territory out to Fairfax, where we take a brief stop to top up our water bottles, because from here, we take Bolinas Road and begin climbing over to stunning Alpine Dam. After a rest and a few obligatory selfies at the Dam, we’ll continue climbing through the trees (and a switchback or two) to reach Ridgecrest Road and the joy (I may have lied a little right there) of the seven sisters. At the Rock Springs parking lot, we have the option of the highly rewarding 6 mile out-and-back to the peak of Mount Tam, or, heading immediately on the descent to Mill Valley. Either way, we’ll regroup at Joe’s Taco Shop in Mill Valley, for a celebration of the days achievement. A short ride over Camino Alto (which will seem like a mere inconvenience after the days earlier climbs) will bring us back to our start.

The route is at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26477462/

All skill levels are welcome! If any ride is too much, we will work with you on making sure you have alternatives to the entire route. You will have a great bike ride. That’s a win! And remember, safety is critical. We will be following all bicycling laws and regulations as well as COVID regulations.!

Reach out with any of your questions or concerns. You really can do this.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP so we have an idea of whose coming. Have questions? Contact Ken and Temo at marinmarauders@gmail.com

REQUIRED ITEMS: bike, helmet, water bottle(s), tire changing tools, and a mask.

COVID-19 Policy: Vaccination is required to participate. All participants must have received one Johnson & Johnson dose or the second Pfizer/Moderna dose at least two weeks before the Training Ride. Masks are required when 6’ of social distancing cannot be maintained. This includes rest stops, indoors and in vehicles with more than one person.

Parking: The rangers have politely asked us to NOT park directly in front of the park. Rather park further down Bon Air Road or on the opposite side of the street from the Park. By doing so, we will give greater access to the park by other patrons
