May 2018 Update

The weather is finally beginning to cooperate, allowing us to get out and get needed miles completed. We completed our Spring 2018 300K and flèche. It’s time for what some riders view as the toughest ride in the series, the 400K.

Our 300K was a success, and as I often say, “it is not a good ride unless there is a story.” The big story from the 300K was the 80 plus miles of tailwind inbound the second half of the ride. That in itself is worth mentioning, but there is another side to it. Eve Hush and J. Andrew Clayton completed the same route as a pre-ride with 80 plus miles of 20 mph headwind inbound, and then manned controls for the scheduled event all day long. Pictures are available. The Co-MVP’s for the 2019 300K are certainly Eve and Andrew.

Epic 200k Brevet

Congratulations to all the Ohio Randonneur volunteers,
Debi Orr and Kelly Cox


You staged what one randonneur was heard to describe as an ‘Epic Ride”. I always say, ‘It’s only considered a good ride if there is a story’. Apparently the 28-42 degree temperatures and the 16-20 mph headwinds generated a lot of stories, including the last ten miles into the wind with absolutely no wind cover. MVP for the ride is Doug Oda who suffered all but the last five miles of the ride. It was getting dark, and he realized he did not have the proper lighting to finish within the rules, and he abandoned. Integrity.
