We rode in one of the official ALC training rides last Saturday. I took the GF1 along on what turned out to be a gorgeous day. Grand total: 92 miles of training ride, 108 miles total and I felt pretty good.
We started off in Portrero hill. We rode through Mission bay just after sunrise en route to the meeting point at the Presidio Sports Basement

Riding along the Giants Promenade by AT&T ballpark
Fast forward to the climb up White’s hill from Fairfax along Sir Francis Drake Blvd.. A huge group of 20+ cyclists powered past us on the climb.
The always popular Rancho Nicasio. Lots of Dolce Vita riders representing.
I forget where this was – probably Point Reyes Petaluma Rd / Red Hill Rd
Beautiful shadows on the rolling hills
The cheese factory – Marin French Cheese Company
At the top of Wilson Hill Rd
Lunch at the apple box
Climbing back up the hill on Petaluma Pt Reyes Rd
I treated myself to an It’s It at the cheese factory
The view of San Francisco from Sausalito along Bridgeway
Looking west from the Golden Gate Bridge
Always a spectacular view
We finally got back on the bike and did a long ride last weekend. ~88 miles to Pt. Reyes Station and back.
fog in the morning in the Presidio:
fog on the golden gate bridge too, of course. It cleared up as soon as we were finished crossing.
The Nicasio reservoir. Our group split soon after – we went to Pt. Reyes Station, the rest to Petaluma and then Santa Rosa.
Old St. Mary’s church + Corvette
Riding back across the bridge that afternoon was a little hairy and a little wet, but this scene was absolutely wild:
this part was a bit scary with the tourists and the fog:

Latte at Blue Bottle in the Ferry Building to end the day:
