This will be 80% dirt once we cross the bridge until we are back at the bridge. Only road segments will be actually getting through Mill Valley to Tenderfoot. From there, we'll only be crossing roads. Recommend spare tubes, a cx bike or road bike with minimally 28mm tires, but 30-32mm will be way better.
Ride should be back at the bridge by 12pm barring any major mechanical or issue of the sort.

Sweeney Ridge includes some BEEFY road climbing to get to the ridge. Maybe less dirt than normal, but not horrible. There's some optional-ish, hike-a-bike for some of the trickier dirt descending in Sweeney. I didn't realize it until riding it, but there's a parallel dirt off to the side of the bike path in Mori Point. And we can add a little more going through GG Park back to Biergarten.
The major caution: the short northbound section of Hwy 1 from Gray Whale trailhead to Devil's Slide has little-to-no shoulder, so I'm going to warn people ahead of time that we need to stay single file there.
Also: there is a local grocery that sells BBQ at around the halfway point.
I'm open to modification suggestions.
