Feeling like you need an escape? Whether Marin County is a full trip or right out your backdoor, the Jenise team is here to set you up with the perfect weekend getaway in Marin!


Stay at the AppleGarden Farm cottage, a hidden gem in Tomales, CA. This bed and breakfast is the perfect starting point to explore Marin’s legendary routes. Getting to know the routes will only make you that much more excited to ride them with Jens and friends in the Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin.


Where to Ride:

We’ve put together a few Strava routes to inspire your Tomales-based rides.


Where to Stay:

The AppleGarden Cottage is the ideal place to unwind from full days of enjoying Marin County’s best routes. AppleGarden provides a unique experience to relax on a small Western Marin Farm with world class riding right out the front door.


Where to Eat:


Staying at the AppleGarden Cottage includes a freshly prepared breakfast each morning, featuring the best local and organic fruit, eggs, granola, and baked goods.

Tomales Bakery offers all the sweet and savory goodies you would expect from your local bakery, perfect for loading up before a ride and refueling after. Additionally, Tomales Bakery is our rest stop partner for Tomales. Try some of their baked goods and get excited to inhale some more as you catch your breath at the Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin. Be sure not to miss out on the focaccia!

K&A Take Away specializes in world-class sausage sandwiches at a reasonable price – the perfect way to immediately satisfy your hunger after a full day of riding.

Looking for a delicious dinner out? Make the short drive to Marshall, CA for Nick’s Cove Restaurant, where you will find fresh, locally-sourced seafood and produce. The best part – every table has a gorgeous view across Tomales Bay to Point Reyes!
