Tour de MALT is a truly spectacular bike ride through the West Marin countryside, much of it protected as farmland forever by MALT. Both the 40-mile and 60-mile rides begin at the MALT-protected Nicasio Valley Farms. Farms and ranches along the routes will host SAG stops. The ride ends in MALT style, with a farm-to-table lunch. This may just be the best food you've had on a supported ride!
