The 2018 Ohio Randonneurs Flèche details are available.
Start anywhere at 7 AM the morning of Saturday May 5, ride 360-plus km and end at 7 AM Sunday May 6. The finish is at the residence of David Buzzee with breakfast, showers and short-term sleeping space. Pictures will be taken, tales will be told, perhaps fortunes and fame will await the finishers (but not likely). Finish address: 1790 East Broad Street, Columbus OH. There is off-street parking for support vehicles. We have ended previous flèches here with good results. Naturally I’ll supply breakfast and shower facilities.
Timeline: send note of interest now to email@example.com. I’ll send a registration form, waiver and team member form. Return these to me along with a ridewithgps route no later than April 8. It’s necessary for me to validate your route and the controls. This also allows time to make any route adjustments (add controls, confirm that no bridges are out, check minimal and 22-hour distances, etc.).
Cost: Twenty five dollars ($25 US) per rider, to be paid when you submit the final registration form, route information and waivers. Non-RUSA members can ride; their fee will be thirty dollars (five dollars for RUSA insurance). Note the deadline of April 8.
Teams: Three bikes minimum, five bikes maximum. Rules are on the RUSA web site. If you want to ride and need other team members and/or help with a route, I can help. Do let me know as soon as possible.
