Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC) will acknowledge Juli Furtado for her contributions to mountain biking at this year's MCBC Dirt Fondo. Come ride with Juli, our Guest of Honor, on an epic ride in the birthplace of mountain biking on Sunday, September 7, 2014. The MCBC Dirt Fondo takes riders on a 45-mile journey from the Marin Headlands to the top of Mt. Tam and back, with 7,000 feet of elevation gain!
Juli Furtado is one of the most accomplished women mountain bikers. She is a 3x World Cup Overall Champion and current record holder for most World Cup wins. She represented the USA in the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and went on to create the first women's specific mountain bike.
MCBC Dirt Fondos offer a taste of Marin's bike legal trail network, which includes world-class views and challenging trails and fire roads. The off-road Fondo is well supported and participants will enjoy riding with some of the pioneers of mountain biking, including Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze and Otis Guy. Other VIPs include Shine Riders Pro Lauren Gregg and NorCal Executive Director Vanessa Hauswald. There is incredible ride support along the entire route, a tasty gourmet BBQ at the end of the rides and all participants receive a free MCBC Dirt Fondo t-shirt.
MCBC encourages riders of all abilities to give it a try and our team of course marshals, roving mechanics and rest station hosts will help you achieve your goal. There are turn-back points along the way that create shorter loop options, including a 32, 20 or 10 mile route.
