New Year’s Day Ride: Hill 88 + Dias Ridge

Today we rode our mountain bikes in the glorious winter sunshine up to Hill 88. It’s an annual tradition for local cyclists to work off their hangovers by making an afternoon pilgrimage to the old military radar site that’s located high up in the Marin Headlands. Folks congregate at the abandoned structures to drink more beer and eat a buffet of snacks brought up by backpacks, baskets and even a cargo bike (Cameron Falconer, a Bay Area framebuilder, slogged up the climbs to bring his custom creation to the spot.)
Afterwards, The Bearded One, Amos and I kept riding onwards to Coastal Trail and Dias Ridge — a great way to ring in the New Year.
