Welcome to the Driftless Randonneurs web site and to randonneuring in beautiful 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.
As always, we’ve got a full season lined up for 2020 with fun and challenging rides of all distances. Our routes feature quiet 2 lane roads in the Driftless and are a mix of long stretches rolling along river valleys with challenging climbs up and over ridge tops. Most of the climbs are in the 7% range and none are over 11% so they’re accessible to just about anybody.
Two important changes for 2020:
- 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.
- I am required to pay $5 per rider, per ride for insurance in 2020 and have no choice but to pass this cost on. I try to keep the cost of my rides to an absolute minimum and will absorb this cost for Populaires.
See you on the road!
