The 2018 Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin

The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin

September 29 2018
Marin County, California, USA

You can expect an awesome day with Jens Voigt, the most fun guy in pro cycling. If you’re lucky he will let you suffer on his wheel. You’ll be treated to a ProTour level experience with neutral support along the way and before the ride. You’ll travel along the world class roads of Marin County, with notable views of Alpine Dam, Mount Tam, Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Point Reyes and Tomales Bay. We’ll keep you fueled along the way with fully staffed and stocked service stops including amazing food from Marin’s local food purveyors.

Our routes will converge at the Point Reyes Station Grand Stop. At the grand stop you will be treated to the best of what Marin has to offer from food, music and amazing sights. You’ll have the opportunity to freshen up and enjoy the Gran Fondo village where you will be treated to a Jensie inspired recovery meal and local brew- on-stage performances and special appearances. In addition you will receive a swag bag that includes a Gran Fondo gift bag, the official Gran Fondo rider manual, goodies from our participating sponsors and a Jensie Gran Fondo commemorative water bottle. 

In addition, the event also aims to raise funds in support of the Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC)!
