The second annual Jensie Gran Fondo, a charitable bicycle race hosted by cycling legend Jens Voigt, five-time winner of the Critérium International, is gearing up for Saturday September 24th. Riders in this Marin based event will range from cycling enthusiasts to pro riders with a guest appearance by one of Hollywood’s most avid cyclist, Patrick Dempsey. Three routes, a 40, 70, and 100-mile “Shut up Legs” course will be paired with luxury amenities that include mid-route gourmet meals, a post-ride BBQ lunch and to finish, a live musical performance in Expo Village. For VIP treatment, the Founders Club package boasts a next day recovery ride and lunch with Voigt hosted by Ferrari of San Francisco. Proceeds from the event go to supporting Marin County Bicycle Coalition.
