• Nice ride report! I’m also just getting into randonneuring and signed up to do my first 200k brevet next weekend. There’s a good group of randonneurs in the Washington, DC area (where I’m from) and they’re great advocates for the rando-lifestyle. I’m similarly hesitant about getting into the 400k and longer rides, but who knows – a year ago I thought 20 miles was a long ride.

    Hope to hear more about your future rides.

    Hey! It was super nice to meet you guys (again:) and have a chance to actually chat a bit, less awkwardly than in eastern Oregon. heh. Oh, and you’ll be happy to know that James and I DID eventually get our food at the Black Bear, and it was every bit as delicious as you guys made yours seem–maybe even more so, since there was so much anticipation building up to it:)

    Anyway. Nice write-up for the ride, and it’s rad that you guys got a chance to try ye olde randonneuring. I bet you’d like the longer rides, too. Just sayin;)

    Hope to see you around!

    Welcome to the club. I strongly suggest trying to ride a full brevet series (200k, 300k, 400k and 600k) next year if you can. It really is a lot of fun. For folks like myself who can’t get away for meandering tours, it’s a nice way to see roads and places I might not normally see on a weekend ride. And there’s always great company.

    Thanks for taking the pictures and writing the report.

    Russ, which bike did you ride?
