Proceeds benefit the Marin County Bicycle Coalition's Off-Road Program

The Marin County Bicycle Coalition is proud to announce the 4th Annuel MCBC Dirt Fondo, an all-day mountain bike ride on Sunday, August 30, 2015 raising funds for MCBC's Off-Road Program. We encourage bicyclists of all skill levels to join us on one of the most spectacular and challenging off-road bicycle rides you'll experience!

The ride will start in the Marin Headlands at the 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 view, riders will continue on a loop around the mountain before rolling back to the Headlands for a grand BBQ feast and stories around the campfire.

Mountain bike pioneers Gary Fisher, Charlie Kelly and Otis Guy have been invited to join us on the epic 45-mile ride with 7,000 feet of elevation gain!

While not everyone is prepared to ride such a great distance, we encourage all interested parties to give it a try. There will be turn-back options at the 5, 10 and 16 mile mark, creating loops of 10, 20 and 32 miles. And you have most of the day to complete the ride.

There will be great support along the journey, thanks to sponsors Mike’s BikesMarin Bikes and Osmo
 including three well-stocked energizer stations, ride leaders and sweeps, and mechanics to help with minor repairs. More information here. Sign up below V
