news MCBC Volunteers Needed for Jensie – Keep Riders Safe!

Do you know someone riding the Jensie? Sign up to volunteer and join them for free food, live music and a beer (21 or older) at the Finisher’s Village on Saturday, October 7. Know someone who wants to ride? We’ve got a great deal for you and your +1. Yes, there’s a catch: they ride, you volunteer and you both get free stuff. Email Jess Willard if you’re interested.

With safety at the forefront of MCBC’s mission, we are proud to be the eyes and ears of the Jensie Gran Fondo of Marin. MCBC volunteers will serve a unique role as course marshals, which includes keeping all riders on course, reminding riders of the rules of the road, and reporting any incidents back to the Jensie team.
