Welcome to the 2023 season of randonneuring in the beautiful Driftless region! As is our custom, we’ve put together a full calendar of events and there is sure to be something for you!
2023 is a “PBP year” so a main area of focus has been to provide as many qualifying opportunities as possible for the big event. As anyone headed to France will know, a full brevet series consisting of a 200K, 300K, 400K and 600K is required with qualifying completed in late June of this year. We’ve got multiple opportunities at each distance so should you have a conflict, injury, bad weather, etc., that upsets your schedule you’ll have lots of opportunities to get back on track.
We’re also once again offering our “Tour of the Driftless” 1000K. In addition to just being a beautiful ride in its own right it’s perfectly positioned for getting that last long ride in before PBP. We can say with confidence that finishing that event will position you very well for success in France.
Astute observers might notice that the calendar “runs out” at the end of June. What does this mean? Does it presage the apocolypse? Nothing so ominous! We’ll be adding events in the last half of the year as time goes on so be sure to check back often.
Hope to see you on the road!
