2011 will be a big year for our local VT Randonneuring rides. We are running a full series here in VT to accommodate local qualifying for Paris-Brest-Paris. Tentative schedule for 2011 pending RUSA approval is as follows:
4/9/2011 Champlain Valley (route TBD)
200k Brevet RUSA / ACP
4/30/2011, Lake Champlain
300k Brevet RUSA / ACP
5/21/2011 Green Mountains (route TBD)
400k Brevet RUSA / ACP
7/15/2011 Montpelier-Maine-Montpelier (route TBD)
600k RUSA Brevet
10/01/2011, Fall Classic
114k RUSA Populaire
200k RUSA Brevet
ACP Brevets will qualify you for PBP.
Our 600k will be RUSA certified only – and is being offered as a ‘tune-up’ ride for PBP (or any stateside 1200km). It is also available for anyone interested in a challenging ride from Montpelier, VT to Maine and back via the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
We will be adding our Cafe Cruise as a RUSA Populaire sometime in early spring / summer, and are working on a Sunday ‘training+social’ ride series to leave from the Old Spokes Home beginning later this fall and running through the winter and spring – shorter rides in bad weather, with studded tires, and all – as winter allows.
