Camp Tamarancho is one of the world’s most famous singletracks — partly because it lies outside Fairfax CA, the “birthplace of mountain biking” — but also because it sports signage like, “Bicycles MUST stay on singletrack!”

You gotta love it.

Our 2011 West Coast mountain biking tour concluded with a romp through the familiar groves and switchbacks of Tamarancho, always a joy, always a place where you run into lots of other mountain bikers from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, and the world.

There’s a campaign to formalize Fairfax’s reputation as mtb’s birthplace with a mosaic in the center of town. According to the Marin Independent Journal: “The chamber is teaming with Quntilia Nylin, ceramic artist and creator of the history obelisk in San Anselmo, to create a ceramic tile installation in downtown Fairfax.” We will miss the fundraiser but wish the locals well.
