Mountain Biking on Mt. Tamalpais
Mt. Tamalpais is considered the birthplace of mountain biking; it is the ‘mountain’ in ‘mountain biking’. Early pioneers of the sport, who started on Mt. Tam, went on to become major influences in the industry. Mt. Tam’s perfect combination of accessible fire roads (originally train tracks and located right outside our door), views and terrain is ideal for the sport. Guests are welcome to keep their own mountain bikes here — or rent them from the local bike shops — and ride the trails where fat tires first appeared.
Road racers might be interested in knowing that the Tour of California has gone right past our door. It’s not unusual to see top professional bike teams flying down our road in training for this and the Tour de France.
