Fun Ride

The fun ride is for folks who are interested in a casual cruise along the coast.  This will be a no rider left behind cruise, but please be sure that you are a competent rider capable of riding 50+ miles with hills and dirt.  All riders should come prepared with their own tools/parts for basic roadside repairsminimally, this would include a multitool, patch kit, spare tube, spoke wrench, pump, and lights. 

  • Register starting at 11am at the McKinley statue in the Panhandle (at Baker Street). 
  • Fun ride starts shortly after the racers push off at noon
  • The route is still being finalized and will not be available until race day, but expect 45-55 miles expect about 50 miles.   Some light mixed terrain will be included on the route, but nothing a road bike couldn't handle.  Based on the most likely route, I'd recommend 25c or 28c tires, but you could get by with 23c and be fine.  The route will be finalized by mid May and I can give a few more specifics then, but I don't want to give too much away (though I don't think it'll be hard to guess it).  The route features about 45 miles of road and only about 5 miles of dirt/broken road.
  • Everybody will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win something.  Check out the sponsors page for prize info.
  • We'll transport one bag for you, from SF to Pescadero and back.  Pick up your bag on Sunday at  Dolores Park, where I'll be posting up for several hours in the afternoon into the early evening.  If that doesn't work for you, we can work something out.
  • Rain or shine.  If we have bad weather, WE WILL either honor the registration on a makeup date or refund your money, your choice.
