Get ready to enjoy a beautiful day during our 40 Miles for 40 Years Ride!

The ride will start and end at Root Down Farm, the site of an historic barn that POST recently rebuilt using traditional methods and locally sourced redwood.

The ride is one of several community events being held this year to celebrate POST’s 40th Anniversary. Cyclists will ride by some of the most important properties protected during our $200-million Saving the Endangered Coast Campaign such as the iconic Pigeon Point Lighthouse, and many of the farms and ranches POST is protecting through our Farmland Futures Initiative.

Riders can complete a the 40-mile route or sign-up to ride the 17-mile “Cloverdale Loop” in a group of other riders. 

  • 40 Mile Route (Start Time: 8am-9am) – For experienced road cyclists, the route will be fairly easy, with gently rolling hills. Less experienced riders may find the route more challenging. We will ride on public roads with several miles of the route on Highway 1. So start training and be ready to ride!
  • 17-Mile Cloverdale Loop (Start Time: 10am) – This is a shorter  segment of the 40 mile ride that will still take you past some of the most beautiful locations on the route. For this ride, you will be riding as a group with POST ride leaders and other guests and will get to hear a bit from POST staff about several locations on the route, including a local farm and Pigeon Point Lighthouse.

Tickets include a delicious, locally sourced lunch at Root Down Farm by local chef Tim Edmonds – including dessert, beer and other refreshments following the ride!

  • Markegard Burger Bar featuring Markegard Family grassfed ground beef and farm-sourced toppings including homemade pickles, sautéed leeks, spring green pesto, and goat cheese (vegetarian and gluten free option available).
  • Pie Ranch Wheatberry Salad  with butter lettuce, arugula, grilled asparagus with charred lemon vinaigrette as well as citrus and pistachio gremolata.
  • Strawberry Pavlova with whipped cream for desert.
  • Sufferfest Beer and other refreshments to accompany your meal.
  • Special at Tunitas Creek Bike Hut: Strawberry Lemonade made from fresh strawberries and local honey from Potrero Nuevo Farm.


About Root Down Farm

In 1997, POST protected the Root Down Farm as part of the 6,857-acre Cloverdale Coastal Ranches. Since then, we have leased the land and the barn to small, direct market organic farmers. In the summer of 2016, POST rebuilt the Root Down Barn with a team of local craftsmen and volunteers from the community using locally sourced materials, creating a landmark to last for centuries.
