news Marin Century Offers Discount For MCBC Members
The annual Marin Century remains one of the “must experience” local riding events. Held since 1963, it attracts riders from all over to enjoy our stunning vistas and challenging route options here in Marin County. You’ve probably viewed their classy ads during the Tour de France broadcasts with a strong sense of regional pride.
Known for the lavish and well-run rest stops, and legendary post-ride feast and expo, the Marin Century takes place this year on Saturday, August 5.
With such a reputation, rider spaces go quickly and the prime routes fill fast!
Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this Classic Marin riding event.
The Marin Cyclists Club has made a special offer to current MCBC members – right now, you can save $8 off of any 2017 Marin Century ride.
The Marin Century caters to a wide range of rider skill levels, offering six routes from 35 to 200 miles. For those seeking the greatest challenge, the Hilly Hundred and the Double Century climb along Marin’s iconic Ridgecrest Road to the top of Mt. Tamalpais, providing a sweeping view of San Francisco and the bay area. Other sections have strained the legs of pro cyclists during the Amgen Tour of California.
If those options seem a little imposing, MCBC is supporting the Half-Metric (35 mile) route – perfect if this is your first foray into longer rides. Whatever your distance, get ready for a great day on the bike!
No matter which route you choose, make sure you give a shout out to MCBC member-volunteers who will again be hosting the Nicasio Rest Stop! If you want to be a part of this support effort, just email MCBC Volunteer Coordinator Jess Willard.
