Welcome to the Marin Marauder’s Progressive Sunday Rides Training Series. The Spring Progressive rides are designed to get you ready for the epic “Big Ride” in June. We start off with smaller rides and build each week until you are riding over 100 miles a day and climbing like a pro. If you take part in this series you will most certainly be ready for ALC 2022. Not only are the rides epic, but the scenery and the people are too. We are a warm and welcoming group of cyclist of all ages and shapes. All AIDS/LifeCycle official training rides are an inclusive and safe space welcoming ANY and ALL, regardless of skill level or cycling pace.
Our fourteenth ride in the series takes us almost ‘coast to coast’ riding out to Point Reyes and finishing with a circuit of China Camp, capturing various parts of previous rides in the series. The ride leaves from Hal Brown Park (by Marin General Hospital) and heads out through Fairfax and over White hill to our first rest stop at Lagunitas Market. We travel on a gentle downhill through the prettiest part of Sir Francis Drake Blvd, and then along the Cross Marin Trail through Samuel P Taylor Park, over Olema Hill, and taking the Bear Valley detour, arrive in Point Reyes. Heading east, we pass by the Nicasio Reservoir, and after taking a brief stop at the Marin Cheese factory continue towards Petaluma. Short of reaching Petaluma we take a right on San Antonio and travel south to Novato, stopping at the Starbucks/Trader Joes on Redwood Blvd, and on to Northgate Mall for a final rest stop, before heading out for a loop of China Camp and returning through San Rafael to Hal Brown Park.
