RETURNING AS JENSIE SOLO FONDO, SEPTEMBER 1- 30, 2021

The Jensie Solo Fondo will be held September 1-30, 2021, utilizing The Jensie Gran Fondo routes in Marin County, CA.  We will be using your favorite courses from the 2018 and earlier editions of The Jensie Gran Fondo. There will be no entry fee, and all participants who register and upload their ride file to Ride with GPS will be eligible for raffle prizes.

What is The Jensie Solo Fondo?

A Solo Fondo is a Gran Fondo you complete on your own any time within a specific date range and on an official course. For years we’ve worked with RidewithGPS.com to provide riders with downloadable routes and turn-by-turn directions, and with assistance from Ride with GPS, we can now post the timing results of your ride on any of the routes on the leaderboard for Overall and Age Group competitions.

Riders do not need to start and finish from any exact location, you can conveniently merge onto the route (no need to go to the start/finish.). Riders are expected to ride about 90% of their route and complete all time segments that count in the distance they are riding. You can ride the timed sections of the course in any order you like, but they only count if you are riding in the direction of the course (the routes are all clockwise).

Route maps for all 3 distances offered in The Jensie Solo Fondo will be available for download to athletes who register for the event. Rider must upload their ride file to RidewithGPS.com to have their official results added to the leaderboards, be eligible to acquire Series points and earn qualification for the 2022 Gran Fondo National Championship, as well win raffle prizes.

The Jensie Solo Fondo is a self-supported ride, meaning there will be no aid stations or mechanical support on course. Maps will be provided that include DIY water, food, and resource locations. Links to join the Solo Fondo event will be provided to riders after registering.

Why is The Jensie Gran Fondo a Solo Fondo for 2021?

Although we are elated that the COVID-19 pandemic is waning and restrictions on public gatherings have mostly been lifted, some ongoing challenges and uncertainties mean we are unable to guarantee an in-person event at a quality level that meets our (and your) expectations for The Jensie Gran Fondo.
