Phoenix Rising - Sausalito to Phoenix Lake Reservoir Bike Tour

Sausalito, CA , United States

About Your Host

For the past four years, I’ve been leading tours in Napa and Sonoma. Motivated by the wonderful people I meet on these trips and the natural beauty of the area, I became inspired to introduce San Francisco visitors to the equally beautiful treasures of Marin County. That’s how Chain, Chain, Chain Marin County Bike Tours geared up. As a Marin local, I welcome you and your group as my special biking guests. I am excited to lead you on a cycling excursion and introduce you to some favorite spots in Marin, my home. I can begin many sentences with, “when I was a little girl” but won’t (unless you ask). My goal is to make your day rich with memories. Offering you my expert guiding skills, a seasonally fresh lunch, and capturing vivid photos of your journey, I guarantee you a safe, pleasurable, and delightful sensory experience. Always inspired by health and fitness, beauty and balance, it wasn’t hard for me to identify that a bike tour through Marin County could link them together. The bike provides the fitness and the beauty jumps out as a vista of the Pacific Ocean or reveals as a hidden redwood grove. With every turn of the pedals my senses are invigorated by riding through the micro-climates and over the macro-hills of the Bay Area and I am excited to introduce you to my local favorites.

What we'll do

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.
