JENSIE ROUTE CHANGES

Due to ongoing construction on Bolinas-Fairfax Road up to Alpine Dam, the Jensie Gran Fondo has been forced to reroute the courses for 2016. Both the “Shut Up Legs” and “Presidential” courses will have new and exciting routes for this year.  Thanks to a world-class network of remote roads, hidden climbs, and rolling hills in Marin County, the new routes will be just as extraordinary as last year. Explore the route details below.

SHUT UP LEGS!

105 miles — 8,051 ft of vertical elevation — 6-8 hours riding time Strava link HERE The new “Shut Up Legs” route will offer a challenging course over many of the world-class roads in the heart of Marin County, highlighted by one of Marin County’s most famous climbs: Bo-Fax up to the infamous Seven Sisters. Experience breathtakingly majestic views of the Pacific Coast Highway through Pt. Reyes and Tomales Bay, enjoying some of the most iconic landmarks in the county.

THE PRESIDENTIAL

70 miles — 4,445 ft of vertical elevation — 4.5-5.5 hours riding time Strava link HERE The “Presidential” route will meander through the scenic Nicasio Valley and traverse the rolling coastline along the Pacific Coast Highway. Experience breathtakingly majestic views of the PCH through Pt. Reyes and Tomales Bay, enjoying some of the most iconic landmarks in the county.

THE BREAK AWAY

40 miles — 2,520 ft of vertical elevation — 2.5-3 hours riding time Strava link HERE Similar to 2015, the “Break Away” route is a scenic 40-mile journey through Nicasio Valley. Riders will experience wide, rolling terrain with one principle, yet challenging climb over to Olema Valley. This route is a great entry-level course with substantially less climbing than the other routes, without sacrificing some of the best features Marin County has to offer.
