Jane Fondo 2023 Women’s-only Fundraising Ride Hosted by Olema House Resort

In 2022 MCBC launched the 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.

This year, we are back with the same amazing event taking all we learned from our inaugural ride in 2022. Your Jane Fondo registration helps support safer streets and better access for bikes in Marin! Join us on NEW DATE! Saturday, April 15, 2023!

Same amazing venue and routes, more and better food!

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 a gourmet lunch with many selections after the ride. And don’t forget beer, wine and the goodie bags, which the hospitality team is working to enhance in 2023 with treats from women owned businesses.

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.
