Hosted by fan-favorite, former professional cyclist Jens Voigt, the one-day event will take place on September 29, 2018.

Named one of the Top U.S. Gran Fondos by Gran Fondo Guide, the Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin takes place on Marin County’s world-class roads with gourmet food and expert support. Offering three epic routes at Stafford Lake Park in Novato, including the 100-mile “Shut Up Legs”, the 70-mile “Presidential” and the “Breakaway” at 40 miles, all participants will have the chance to ride with beloved former pro, Jens Voigt.

“I've always loved California, especially Marin County. What’s better to ride on than these roads? And now I don't even have to hurt myself in the breakaway anymore,” said Voigt. “I can’t wait to take to Marin’s best and most scenic roads, fueled by the yummiest local food, and yell “Shut Up Legs!” all over the county.”
