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.

Ohio Randonneur Flèche

Ohio Randonneurs did not submit the date for the 2018 Flèche by the deadline of October 1 2017. I recently learned of this. Since then I have worked with RUSA and ACP officials to get ACP approval for teams and riders who complete the flèche. The effort was successful. On the calendar the flèche may be listed as a RUSA Arrow but will be recorded with ACP as a sanctioned flèche when results are submitted. The 2018 OR flèche will meet the requirement for R-5000 and R-10000 recognition. So wait no longer; form your team, submit your registration ([ddownload id=”3427″ text=”download here”]) and send in your proposed route. I apologize for the uncertainty – and am pleased that the ride will now be official with ACP.
