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.
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.
