At a Glance
Riding Northern California just wouldnít be complete without a trip along the San Andreas Fault, Americaís most notorious earthquake zone. Leaving Tamalpais Valley, foreshocks of esses reverberate through the grassy hills and side-slip the treed gorges of the Golden Gate Rec Area. Pavement is tightly engineered and rock solid, except for the shaky bit north of Muir Valley, where some of it is so bumpy you could be forgiven for thinking itís 1906 all over again. Ironically, the section between Dogtown and Olema, where the DH directly tracks the fault line, shows minimal side-to-side asphalt movement Ė at least for now. But the dramatic scenic subduction points over Stinson Beach and beside the broad waterscapes of Tomales Bay more than make up for it. Funnily enough, the biggest peril on this DH isnít the pending quake. Itís getting distracted by all the bikes displaced outside the saloons in the epicenter of Point Reyes Station. Because if you do, youíll miss the event thatíll move you the most Ė the smooth, remote, essing tilt right along the water south of Tomales thatís so hot, itís right off the TIRES scale. Might want to hurry up and ride here, though. Before the big one hits.
