Jill is an active blogger and her audience expects to hear from her almost on daily basis, so she has already posted a nice description of this ride. And her pictures are so much better than mine.
I still have to record this ride on my blog, mostly just as a reminder to myself how scenic some places around the bay are, and for those few who ever browse to these pages, as a motivation to go out and explore.

The Bolinas ridge trail connecting Mt. Tam with the foot of Point Reyes is so tempting on a map. In reality it is a bumpy ride which will leave you wishing for a full suspension mountain bike.

In brief, we took Cross Marin bike path through the Sam Taylor redwoods, SFD boulevard through Lagunitas to Fairfax and rode on streets through Ross, Larkspur, Corte Madera, Mill Valley and Sausalito, just in time to catch some last sun rays reflecting of San Francisco skyline.
Yes, there were some flat sections on this ride.
