Are you new to the area and looking for routes for road ride routes? Here is the first half of a small "menu" of rides ranging from ~15 miles to ~80 miles to get you started! (If you're looking for longer routes, go here).
You will notice that the rides tend to leave Novato by heading north along 101, past the Birkenstock building and Olompali State Park, toward Petaluma, and use the bike path to connect to San Antonio Road. We prefer that route out of town, because Novato Blvd and Lucas Valley Rd don't offer as much protected bike lane.
