iBOB Group Ride?

Anybody up for an iBOB group ride starting in San Francisco and winding up through Marin the next day (Sunday)? Let me know!

Cyclofiend has a couple of tentative plans for riding options on Sunday:

I'm not sure what people will be up for - though a reenactment of the recent SF Randonneurs 200K or 300K would probably be more ambitious than most folks will want.

One option I was thinking that a GG bridge to Mt Tam summit via Railroad Grade*. This is a pretty mild 6%-ish climb to the East Peak of Mt. Tam (elev. ~2,600'). Return via the paved road to Mill Valley.

*(This is reasonably weather dependent, as it is a dirt fire road climb which could be sloppy/sloggy muddy. As of Tuesday evening, the forecast is that this current rain should pass through, with clearing on Thursday through Saturday. Sunday might not be super gorgeous, but the chance of rain is somewhere down around 15%.)

If folks want more of a paved road loop with decent views, we could climb up Conzulman, look back at SF, drop down a steep-in-spots descent to the beach returning through the tunnel. We could drop down to Sausalito and possibly add a Paradise Drive loop option.

I've done a quick map on Bikely up to the terminus of the MV Bike Path...

For the Paradise Drive option, we could then climb over Camino Alto to Corte Madera, pick up Paradise drive and head to Tiburon Point, have some snacks and coffee as we look back at the city, then head up the bike path and return to the Bridge. That's probably in the 30 mile neighborhood, IIRC.

I'd probably want to start at the GGB at around 9, and proceed from there.
