Got legs...

If you think you got legs enough, there is a challenge coming up soon that could suit you and your legs. Carlos is throwing his annual La Ruta Loca Randonee 200k mixed terrain ride on July 11. The route will cover many dirt and paved roads through Marin County. The basic route is:

We start at the Marina Safeway and ride to Muir Woods via the Marin Headlands then climb to Pantoll Ranger Station using Deer Park, continue to Lake Lagunitas using mostly Mt Tam fireroads, connect to Bolinas/Fairfax rd, down to Alpine Dam, up to Bolinas Ridge down to Hwy 1 via Randall Trail, pay a visit to Mike @ Black Mountain Cycles in Point Reyes Station to get your proof of passage, ride back to Fairfax and Larkspur using the regular bike route, before Camino Alto turn left and do the full Paradise Loop, at Mill Valley keep towards Mt Tam, up to Railroad Grade, West Point Inn, down to Pantoll Ranger Station, connect to the Marin Headlands via panoramic Hwy, get to Miwok Stables and continue on the fire roads to Conzelman, down to the Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco Side) and you are done. Sounds like fun?
If you got legs, it will be a heck of a ride. I've got a shop to open so I won't be there (not like I have anywhere near the fitness required anyway). But, I will be one of the controls so I will look forward to seeing the riders stop in. I'll try to remember to have some cold refreshments for the riders.

Looking forward to the mudfest on Bolinas Ridge and the cold drink after. Thanks Mike!
