2011 San Francisco Randonneurs Populaires!

Mark your calendars! In 2011, SFR will host two populaire rides: June 25th, and Oct. 1st. The San Francisco Randonneurs is a club that hosts rides known as brevets. Normally, our rides begin at distances of 200km and go up from there.

The Populaire, at 114km (71 miles), is designed to be an entry into randonneuring at a distance that appeals to a wider audience. Our populaire route begins at the Golden Gate Bridge and uses a shortened version of our traditional first 200km brevet of the year. Basically, we ride out to Point Reyes Station, via Olema, and return via Nicasio to a picnic gathering at ride's end back in San Francisco. If you are interested in trying brevet riding, the Populaire is a great introduction!

Register at http://sfrandonneurs.org/registration.htm.

The ride, like all our other brevets, is open to all riders, meaning you do not need to be a member of the San Francisco Randonneurs, nor do you need to be a member of our parent, national organization, RUSA. Many riders do later join one or both.

If you have questions, feel free to send them to populaire@sfrandonneurs.org or rba@sfrandonneurs.org

See you there!
