WoS China Camp
Wheels of Steel WoS – China Camp (May 2011)
Thanks Kota for introducing the route!
902am BART to Embarcadero Ferry 1010am to Larkspur Landing
Tunnel to Lincoln Ave up over 101
Right on San Pedro to trailhead
Slay the China Camp loop aka “Single Speed Heaven”: Shoreline to Bay View to Oak Ridge and back
Reverse 250pm Larkspur ferry, back in time for dinner!
Embarcadero Ferry to Larkspur Ferry, inside the ferry building, grab a cup of coffee and sourdough baguette to power up
Wouldn’t you rather be stuck in an office pushing paper? “Me? (shaking head, chuckle) Doing this for forty years, on the water. (smile)”
Cotton making a cup of espresso with burr grinder, whole beans and clever immersion brewer en route
Sweet and savory energy intake
All I see in this future are $700 oil changes and a money pit
The fun is about to begin, trail conditions ideal, singlespeed hardtail gearing 32:18 (26″) and 34:21 (29″) running 2.2-2.4 big volume tires
It’s a small world, noting a couple hours prior was ferry cruising past that very island by the San Rafael Bridge
