We're going up Tam again! The group meets up at the Safeway on Miller and Camino Alto in Mill Valley. Water and restrooms are available inside Safeway. We head up Miller to Throckmorton and make our way up Cascade to Marion. It's a nice climb through a single lane residential neighborhood. We continue on Edgewood to Sequoia Valley Rd.

We head up E. Ridgecrest to the summit. The ocean and city views are spectacular!

What a great day to be up here!

We descend Tam and continue on W. Ridgecrest to Bolinas-Fairfax Rd. Before we reach the Dam we're stopped by the CHP; Acura is filming a car commercial up and around this area. Pretty cool!

The lunch/snack stop is at the Fat Angel Bakery in Fairfax. From there, we wind our way through the streets of San Anselmo, Kent, Ross, Kentfield, Larkspur, Corte Madera and take Chapman back to Mill Valley.

Thanks to everyone who joined me for this ride up Tam! What a fabulous day to be out riding; great weather with funny and social cycling companions! Another "thanks" to Peter for helping Matt on Bolinas-Fairfax Rd.
