Jensie Gran Fondo 2016

Who is Jens Voigt?

Here are some pictures from the Jensie Gran Fondo I did yesterday.  I met up with Tracey Grose from San Francisco (a friend of ours that we met at some previous cycling events) and we were riding buddies for the day.

gran fon·do
ˌɡrän ˈfändō/
noun
noun: gran fondo; plural noun: gran fondos; noun: granfondo; plural noun: granfondos
  1. a long-distance road cycling event in which a large number of cyclists ride a marked route.
    “the two-day event features a gran fondo where participants can choose from 40- or 90-mile rides”

It started out at 8am and we arrived at Stafford Lake Park in Novato, CA, about 40min drive from my home.  It was a beautiful morning, crisp, no wind.  By the time we arrived back at Stafford Lake at 1:30pm it was very hot and a bit windy on the road.  The Lagunitas beers and Bratwurst sandwiches were so good!  As Jensie said at the end of the ride:

“Good weather, good riding, good beer and good bratwurst.  What can be better??” 

Here is a great article that shows Jens’s character.  Really inspiring.

These pictures were just taken with my iPhone
