Mountain Biking Highlight
Schwalbe Tires went gravel riding.
June 14, 2021
Starting at a little bakery called Bootjack, this route climbs up and over Mt. Tamalpais, traverses the ridgeline, and drops to the coast, on a mixture of road, gravel, dirt, and loamy forest. The second half climbs back to the saddle of the mountain, and then the real fun starts. Several miles of single and double track wind you down into the Marin Headlands. 40c tires, confidence, and a flat kit are very encouraged. This ride showcases what I love about “gravel”— that is, testing the limits of a rigid bike and drop bars over a wide variety of terrain.
