China Camp loop and San Pablo Bay

A week after AIDS/LifeCycle and I’m on the bike again, which was my plan after last years two week hiatus before attempting the Giro. Not this year. Rico led an alternate ride to Cory’s planned China Camp and Pt. Reyes Station. We met at Velo Rouge Cafe on Arguello, joined by Dave F and Wanderson, a nice group of four.

I thought of Erik and his planned Tam Quickie leaving at 8am, as we headed out; it was a typical foggy morning but it was quite windy. By the time we had crossed the bridge and made it to the end of the Sausalito bike path, we could see blue sky. Continuing on over Camino Alto on on to Larkspur, we turned on to Bon Air Siding Road thru Greenbrae to climb Wolfe Grade, which brought us to downtown San Rafael, with a quick stop at Starbucks.

From there we headed out Lincoln to North San Pedro Road, heading into China Camp State Park, where we will be having the Club Picnic in a few weeks. We continued on thru the park and had lunch at the Loch Lomond Market, which has a fabulous deli inside. After lunch, we headed back to downtown San Rafael to retrace our climb of Wolfe Grade back to the city.

Thanks again, Rico! Really enjoyed the ride, and great company too! Got a few more photos, but here’s a new “toy.” An interactive map of the ride:
