Cycling from Fairfax to Point Reyes Station

 

On Saturday, July 20, The High Adventure cycled from Fairfax to Point Reyes Station and back.  The weather and road conditions were fabulous.  The traffic conditions were minimal and those cars encountered yielded the road. 

A short lay over at Point Reyes Station provided time for lunch and the Farmers Market.

Total distance: 39.66 miles

Elevation Gain : 2257

Time 3h 18 min

Saturday, July 20, The High Adventure is going to cycle from Fairfax to Point Reyes Station and back 

We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the "Fairfax Coffee Roastery" in Fairfax located at 4 Bolinas Rd., the corner of Bolinas Rd. and Broadway.  

 

The ride will be the scenic route along Sir Francis Drake Blvd. West to Olema at Hwy. 1, Shoreline Hwy, then North to Pt. Reyes Station.  This route will skip a much longer, hillier route along Bolinas Road, which turns into Fairfax Bolinas Rd, out to Hwy 1 in Bolinas, 11.2 miles south of Olema.  

- Once we get to Olema at Shoreline Hwy we will continue 2.4 miles, mostly flat, North to Point Reyes Station.

Remember all High Adventure Events are open to all. We encourage that friends and family members be extended invitations
