Let's have fun!
We want everyone to have as much fun riding a bike as we do. So we created Tamalpais Velo Club to be an inclusive cycling club, where the weekly rides are all No-Drop, there are no hammerfests and each ride is tuned to all riders that are participating. The bottom line for us is participation, not speed, and encouraging residents of Marin and beyond to enjoy our beautiful county!
Three things we stick to...
The average Tour de France rider maintains an average speed of 25-28 MPH during an entire stage. We aren't Tour de France riders and we keep it to 15-17 MPH average on the entire route.
This means that we predetermine points on each ride and do our best to accommodate for slower riders with A and B groups.
Want to hammer? This club is NOT for you. That's not to say we don't ride well and sometimes fast, but we are about community and fun first, not testosterone.
We are very grateful to have the support of our wonderful sponsors! Whether you are a member of Tam Velo Club, or thinking about joining our rides, we encourage you to patronize our sponsors. You can learn more about them or get information about sponsoring us by clicking here.
