It’s been a great start of summer for the cycling community here in Fairfax, California.18284146131_a07d6dd5cb_k

The Bear Development Team held their annual Mt. Tam Fondo on May 30th, which kicked off from the new Marin Museum of Bicycling at 1966 Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Fairfax. The Fondo cyclists rode 60 scenic miles and climbed 3,000 feet around the beautiful Mt. Tamalpais. The riders’ investment in Bear brought in over $4,000 for the boys and girls of our junior cycling team! With their support, the Bear Development Team will continue to give hard-working, committed, bright, good kids a great experience racing bikes. Last year, we traveled all over America and sent several kids to Europe where they were able to compete at the highest levels of competition. This year, our expanded team roster includes 1 junior woman, and 17 junior men riding road, mountain and cyclocross.

For those of you who missed the Bear Tam Fondo, here’s some amazing footage from Elliot Jaramillo’s GoPro cam mounted to a drone helicopter. Stunning views of the Mt. Tamalpais, Pacific Ocean, San Francisco Bay, and the Bear Development Team.

Come ride with us next time. ➼➼➼
