Summer Solstice(ish) Pedal Revolution Staff Bike Camp-Out

A great thing about living in the Bay Area is immediate access to incredible outdoor areas.  There at least 5 campgrounds in Marin less than 30 miles from downtown San Francisco.  In addition, there is camping on Angel Island and at Half Moon Bay, just 35 miles south.

Seeking to take advantage of the (tied for) second longest day of the year, Daniel and I (Joel) set-out for a sub-24 overnight trip to to Hawk Camp in the Marin headlands.  Of the several Headland camping areas, Hawk is the most remote and least used as it requires a two mile dirt fire road bike (and or) hike to access the “primitive” site (aka. no running water, plumbing, or campfires).  We set out from Pedal Revolution after closing, around 530.

We still had plenty of daylight left to set up camp and enjoy our food.

Although the road was sometimes steep (f.y.i. the fellow in the background wearing green was about to begin riding back home to Argentina!!!),

The photo really flattens this pitch. I shamelessly walked...
