Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a novice, Jane Fondo offers three route options of 24, 38, and 70 miles, catering to a wide range of abilities. You’ll enjoy rest stops with artisan treats from local producers and SAG (support and gear) in strategic locations along the routes. After conquering the roads, indulge in a well-deserved celebration at the Olema House Resort with post-ride lunch and refreshments.

Route Options
Wellness Spin (24 miles)
Our most comfortable route option is a 24 mile out and back trip from Olema House to the old Lincoln School on Hick Valley Road. There are two medium climbs in each direction with a total elevation of 1,700 and a well-stocked energizer station at the turnback point at mile 12.

EmpowerHER (38 miles)
Challenge yourself on the classic Marshal Wall climb with this scenic 38 mile route totalling 2,775 of elevation. You’ll pedal with the Wellness and Sisterhood riders to the Lincoln School at mile 12, where a bountiful rest stop spread of sweet and salty treats, energizer snacks and hydration awaits. Then wind through cattle ranches and fields to the Marshall Wall challenge. You’ll be greeted with another bountiful rest at the top of the climb at mile 22. Then a fun descent to Highway 1 and a 10 mile trek along Tomales Bay back to Olema House ​​

Sisterhood Expedition (70 miles)
Looking for a challenging adventure with picturesque scenes every few miles? If yes, this 70 mile route with 5,800 feet of total elevation is your ticket to good times! You’ll ride the famous Chileno Valley and meander along little-known ranch roads at the Marin/Sonoma border before heading west towards Dillon Beach and the rolling hills of Tomales. This route finishes with a 12 mile roll along Tomales Bay to Olema House and has well-stocked rest stops at mile 12, 34, and 51, with energy snacks and hydration, sweet and salty treats, and some gourmet surprises.
