In honor of RUSA’s 20th Anniversary, Ohio Randonneurs will offer the Randonneuring 101 Populaire, along with the Hocking Hills 200K Brevet, on August 19, 2018.
You have ridden a couple of centuries, you rode Pelotonia, you have the ability to ride long in all sorts of weather, your friends said something about “randonneuring”, and you want to give it a try, but don’t know where to start. Ohio Randonneurs is offering the opportunity to dip your toes into randonneuring.
Once again, we will be offering a 100K Populaire starting at 10:00 a.m. on August 19, 2018.
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 $15 and you can register here. 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.
