Ist Randonneur Event October 10, 2010

"Randonneuring: Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring."

Getting ready for my 1st RUSA 170K Populaire (Timed Century) Great River Ride 2010. "Now in its 20th year, this populaire has been picked by Bicycling Magazine as one of the Top 10 Century Rides in the USA. Plenty of hills, great scenery, lots of support, and a super buffet with entertainment at the end. A great way to finish the season. Never been canceled due to weather and we've had years with snow, 12 inches of rain, and cold temps., as well as years of perfect Autumn riding." Berkshire Brevets 2010
