With 2020 in the rear view mirror let’s all hope that 2021 brings a return to normal and that we can go back to enjoying the sport we love! We’re doing our part with a full slate of events.

Some notes about the schedule.
West Union was the venue for two pre-PBP “Hell Weeks”. Although not spread over a week, the weekend will feature all of the distances in a Super Randonneur series. The idea is that you can either choose to do one of the longer rides on Saturday, make a weekend of it with a 300K on Saturday and 200K on Sunday or just come out for a single day ride. I’ve ridden all of the West Union routes and have enjoyed them so this should be a fun weekend of riding no matter which distance you choose.
Hope to see you on the road!
