This climb is very mild and one of the main connectors from the northern Marin County coast to Petaluma and Novato. The "climb" begins in the village of Olema and ends a mere 1.1 mile up the hill.
Traffic/Roadway surface: There is a fair amount of traffic on this road, but Marin is very cyclist friendly and there are Share the Road signs and generally a shoulder to ride in or near on the climb. As with most of the Marin County roads, this one is in excellent condition.
The Olema climb is circumstantial evidence that Strava has its roots in Marin County as the segment number for this pedestrian climb is a mere 154.
