Jane Fondo, an all-women’s ride highlighting the great riding in West Marin and celebrating the amazing food, libations and rustic hospitality of the North Bay, returns on Saturday, April 27th, 2024.
Same amazing venue and routes, with new price structure for 2024!
Enjoy rest stops with artisan treats from local producers, great route marking, and SAG (support & gear) in strategic locations along the routes. Riders will enjoy an eclectic mix of urban sophistication and Bohemian charm before and after the ride as the Olema House Resort rolls out the red carpet, with coffee and abundant pastries in the morning, and picnic lunch on the resort green!
Fundraising for a good cause
Women are barometers of bike safety, especially moms who won’t risk riding with their children along routes that feel unsafe. We’re working with our 11 cities and the County to make cycling fun, safe and comfortable for all. Look to the Miller Avenue bike lanes in Mill Valley or the recent improvements along Butterfield Avenue in San Anselmo as examples of what you are supporting when you register for the Jane Fondo.
We’ll have coffee and pastries in the morning, and gourmet post-ride lunch and libations. Your registration also includes an invite to the VIP cocktail party at Piatti and exclusive Jane Fondo training rides and goodie bags.
The ride starts between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. depending on your route choice. All routes begin and end at Olema House Resort, located at 10021 Coastal Hwy 1 in Olema.
