RUSA has opened brevets in September for distances up to 300K. We’ve put events on the calendar both in Richland Center and the Quad Cities. Assuming events are still open in October we’ll be holding additional events in both locations.
There are a number of changes to how we’ll be conducting our brevets due to the Coronavirus. Please see this page and read it carefully prior to the brevet.
Welcome to the Driftless Randonneurs web site and to randonneuring in the Driftless region of Eastern Iowa and Western Wisconsin! We’re a bit biased but we think our region has some of the best riding in the country and we invite you to join us and see for yourself.
Some important changes:
- RUSA membership is mandatory for all rides – no exceptions. Our insurer for 2020 requires that all participants in RUSA brevets be members. You can join RUSA here. The cost is $30 per year which gets you a subscription to American Randonneur, Audax Club Parisien (ACP) certification for your completed rides and access to various awards.
- There is no day of ride registration. Advance registration is required for all rides.
More Breaking news! As many of you know, Quad Cities Randonneurs came to an end last year. I’ve done a number of rides in the Quad Cities over the years and felt the loss of those rides keenly. Accordingly, I applied to extend the Driftless region to include the Quad Cities and Eastern Iowa. This application was approved by the RUSA board so I will be offering brevets in the Quad Cities beginning in April.
Since I’m fitting these rides into an existing calendar I won’t be able to offer as many as I’d like but there are already several rides available and more will be added as time goes on. Keep an eye on the ride calendar for updates!
See you on the road!
