|Riders at the 2010 year end party in Greensboro.|
It’s that time of the year, and you’re invited. The NC Randonneurs will hold two rides next Saturday, and an evening party. You’re welcome to join the fun.
If you wanted to try randonneuring, here’s your opportunity. We have a ride of approximately 70 miles (111K) and a longer ride of 125 miles (200K). The rides start and finish at Natty Greene’s near downtown Raleigh.
The rides are RUSA events and open to all riders. The routes were mainly designed by Mike Hogan. You’ll find the country roads especially enjoyable.
There’s a fee of $15 for the rides. After registering and signing a waiver, you’ll get a standard brevet card. You’ll have to have this stamped along the way at various stores or checkpoints.
The evening’s festivities are also at Natty Greene’s. There's a $15 fee for the party as well.
