Ohio Randonneurs is offering the opportunity to dip your toes into randonneuring.

Once again, we will be offering a 100K Populaire starting at
9:00 on October 29, 2016.

We will use the same route as last year – A ride from the Cyclist Connection bike shop in Canal Winchester, Ohio to Granville, Ohio and back, followed by food to replenish the burned carbs. We will include a cue sheet, brevet card, brevet controls of each available type and a few hills, all to give you a sample of randonneuring and how it works. It is not a race. The fee will be $10, and you may register here at our site. The fee covers administrative costs, insurance for non-RUSA members and, of course, the food.

For more information about randonneuring, go to RUSA.org. If you are a randonneur and are looking to complete your P-12, this ride counts. Get your friends out and show them what you do on those long rides you complete. Teach “newbies” what it is all about.
