What's Cool In Road Cycling

The Jensie Gran Fondo 2017

The Jensie Gran Fondo: Cycling Legend, Jens Voigt, to Host Third Annual Cycling Event in Marin County, California, on Saturday, October 7th.

The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin sets itself apart from other Gran Fondo events with its world class and iconic routes served up with VIP treatment and delicious epicurean meals. The “Shut Up Legs” route was created with Jens Voigt in mind. With a beautiful route and gourmet food to fuel and reward the experience, the Jensie will be a Fondo to remember, while supporting the Marin County Bicycle Coalition.

The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin was recently named one of the Top 15 U.S. Gran Fondos by Grand Fondo Guide. Cyclists will enjoy Marin County’s word-class roads, gourmet food, and expert support for a truly exceptional day on the bike. Cyclists will also get the rare opportunity to ride alongside former pro Jens Voigt. The most popular personality in cycling will return to Marin County to host his third annual Gran Fondo on October 7th.

“We chose Marin County for this ride because it ticks all the boxes; it’s big, it’s beautiful and it has all the facilities we need to make my Gran Fondo a really fun day out on the bike,” said Voigt. “The ride features Marin’s best and most scenic roads, the best local food, and my favorite part, the best local beer at the end.”

The Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin will once again take place at the Stafford Lake Bike Park. The Fondo will host three rides of 40, 70 and 100 miles respectively, offering road cyclists of all abilities the opportunity to participate.

Event proceeds will again benefit The Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC), whose work in the county provides safer cycling routes and more bike access, on and off-road. MCBC will also be a critical part of the event’s success by providing volunteer staff throughout the event.

What: In its third year, The Jensie Gran Fondo will host an extraordinary day with three routes: 40, 70 and 100-mile courses. It will boast incredible amenities that include gourmet meals mid-route, a post-ride BBQ lunch, post-ride ice cream, mid ride Affogatos, and live music in the Expo Village.
