Bike Ride: 23rd Annual Cycling Trip to Tiburon
Oct 15 - San Francisco

Distance: ~22 miles (recreational) or ~37 miles (advanced)
Difficulty: 4 out of 10 (recreational) or 7 out of 10 (advanced)
Terrain: Paved road with several hills
Type: Road and Mountain bike

Ride one of the most beautiful routes in the country and have intelligent conversation (it can't be helped) along the way. But wait - there's more... Food! We set up the schedule to have a leisurely lunch close to Tiburon’s ferry. Join us for the 23nd Annual MITCNC bike trip for both the dedicated and the experienced recreational type bike riders. Both the advanced and recreational routes start at Pier 41. The recreational route is about 22 miles long, and goes through the aquatic park, Fort Mason, Presidio Park, over the Golden Gate bridge, downtown Sausalito and then near the water all the way to Tiburon. The advanced route is significantly longer, totaling about 37 miles. This route starts off the same as the recreational route, then it branches off to Corte Madre, Larkspur, and Kentfield. Please indicate in your RSVP if you are interested in this longer route. For your reference, here are maps for both routes:
Both groups should arrive in Tiburon by 2:00, leaving time for a leisurely lunch (self-hosted).   The following option is available, within a few doors from where we will be parking our bikes.
  • Sam’s Café: an outside patio ($$)
Please note that we will be arriving during the lunch rush (count on at least 1 hour to get lunch completed).   If you are running late (e.g., mechanical problems causing you to arrive late and are concerned about  missing the ferry), the following quick lunch options are available:
  • Waypoint pizza (they sell pizza by the slide) ($)
  • Caffe Acri (they sell packed sandwiches) ($)
We will be aiming to take the 3:05 PM ferry.  The ferry ticket for adults is $14, for children $7.   Ferry schedule available here:

 

For those who don't have bikes, you can rent bikes and helmets at the Blazing Saddles store at Pier 41. Their phone number is (415) 202-8888 and their web page is http://www.blazingsaddles.com/. The bike rentals run around $32-$80 day depending on what type of bike you want. Relatively inexpensive parking in the area can be found at Pier 29, and Green and Embarcadero.   There are several parking apps where you can reserve parking in parking garages and check out prices (e.g., https://www.parkingpanda.com/fisherman-s-wharf-san-francisco-parking# and others).
For those interested in carpooling, a carpool signup sheet has been created for this MIT event: http://www.groupcarpool.com/t/a6cwhn.  You may indicate your interest in carpooling in that signup sheet.  Please make sure to exchange contact information (e.g., phone numbers) and email precise directions of where and when to meet).
Additional items to bring:
  • Water (at least 2 liters per person and some snack)
  • Snack for the ride
  • Sunblock
  • Cash for expenses outlined (ferry, lunch and if applicable a bike)
  • Helmet
  • Bike lock
  • Light jacket for the ferry ride back
  • Great smile and fantastic attitude
Just a gentle reminder, please remember to eat before engaging in strenuous exercise.  Please have breakfast before this ride.
