25-mile round trip from Sausalito to Phoenix Lake Includes: Bike Rental from Bicycle Odyssey, as well as Rustic Bakery and Café's sweet and savory picnic lunch that's exclusively made for our tour. Exploring five Marin County hamlets, we traverse the small towns that dot southern-central Marin where traditional main streets still exist. Our destination is Phoenix Lake, one of the local reservoirs at the base of Mt. Tamalpais, Marin’s highest peak. The final half-mile requires riding on a gravel fire road and, if time permits, a beautiful 3-mile hike around the lake surrounded by California’s live oaks and the call of the occasional peacock. Whether or not you decide to hike, lunch will be waiting for you at one of the picnic tables tucked under the trees. Skill Level: Intermediate. Experience riding distances on roadways and fire trails, some uneven terrain. Conditions: Comfortable riding with traffic in the morning, eases on the return trip.
