Event description

Description

The Marin County Bicycle Coalition is proud to announce the 8th Annual MCBC Dirt Fondo, an all-day mountain bike ride on Saturday, August 17. Proceeds support our ambitious 2019 goals, including a diverse list of projects, ranging from near-term efforts to initiatives that may require several years of advocacy. We encourage bicyclists of all skill levels to join us on one of the most spectacular and challenging off-road bicycle rides in the Bay Area!

The ride starts in the Marin Headlands (Golden Gate National Recreation Area), just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The 45-mile route takes cyclists on a journey that climbs and descends a number of ranges before an ascent to the top of Mt. Tamalpais. After stopping to take in the amazing views, riders will continue on a loop around the mountain before rolling back to the Headlands for a grand BBQ feast.

We encourage all interested parties to test their abilities. There will be turn-back options at the 5, 10 and 16 mile marks, creating loops of 10, 20 and 32 miles. Participants have most of the day to complete the ride.

There will be great support along the journey, including a number of well-stocked energizer stations, ride leaders and sweeps, radio communication and SAG support, and mechanics to help with minor repairs.

In 2019 we are continuing our efforts to get more kids and women to hit the dirt! Riders 17 and under get a reduced registration rate. Women can join women-led groups and receive bonus swag in their goodie bags from businesses that are owned and/or cater to women.

What: An endurance ride, with 20 mile, 32 mile and 45 mile options

When: Saturday, August 17 (Soft start between 7 AM and 8 AM - No starts after 8AM!)

Where: Presidio Riding Club on Bunker Road in Marin Headlands

Registration fee: $125 Includes a well supported ride complete with SAG and energizer stations, a BBQ feast with Lagunitas beer, and a special MCBC Dirt Fondo t-shirt and goodie bag. We will also have a training ride in July (free--first come first served) and other activities to prepare you for the big day.
