Day 1 – SF to Sebastopol: https://www.strava.com/activities/261811850
Day 2 – Sebastopol to SF: https://www.strava.com/activities/261811844
Fairfield Inn & Suites (This is about a mile from downtown Sebastopol.)
Marin Sun Farms – Great lunch spot on day 1, which was 40 miles into our rides.
HopMonk Tavern – We planned this as our evening spot, and saw the band Hot Buttered Rum for some late-night bluegrass.
Good Earth Natural Foods – This is a great spot in Fairfax to fill up water bottles (aisle 3) and grab a bite to eat.
This is quickly becoming a go-to option for a weekend getaway. It’s a super-simple format, it’s relatively easy to plan, it allows you to go further out in a day than most loops, and it just feels good to get away for an entire weekend. I’m looking forward to developing some more out-and-back routes and hoping friends and acquaintances will benefit from these mini adventures and also share some of their own.
