La Baby Ruta Loca route, but switched things up at the last minute. We rolled across the bridge, up Conzelman Rd, took up Bobcat Trail through the Marin Headlands, then jogged through Mill Valley and hopped on Old Railroad Grade up to West Point Inn, where we took a break. We dropped down to Pantoll Range Station for water, after which Carlos turned back due to a twinging knee. Greg and I forged ahead, dropping down Coastal Trail towards Hwy 1 then heading north along the coast, exploring the Steep Ravine camping area and passing through Stinson Beach. We climbed back up over Bolinas Ridge via BoFax Rd to Alpine Dam, continued on BoFax to Fairfax, where we rolled homewards via the usual paved route. 6:30am to 5:30pm, around 83 miles.
