We are thrilled to bring randonneuring events to the greater Detroit area.

As we start our fourth year the number of participants and interest in randonneuring continues to grow, volunteers are needed
to help us continue to grow and improve. Start/Finish, and manned control help, route planning, pre-riding or driving the route is needed.
Please contact Tom Dusky Detroit Randonneurs info@detroitrandonneurs.org if you would like to help or for more information.

Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling.
This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount.
When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning
of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring.

Randonneurs USA (RUSA) membership is not mandatory for participation, but is greatly encouraged,
please JOIN NOW! or renew your membership. New RUSA insurance rates have allowed us to lower our entrance fees for RUSA members.
We are happy to participate in the League Of Michigan Bicyclists $1 Per Rider program, so $1 from every entry will go go help the LMB
make cycling safer and more enjoyable http://www.lmb.org/

From paved roads to rustic trails, we have every type of surface you might ride on, in this brevet.
At about 50% trails and gravel roads — wide comfy tires are a must.
Ending at Rochester Mills Beer Company, it will be the perfect ending to another season of Ranonneuring.
Let's all meet up for a cold one at the end! We can start a new traditionn where the first finisher buys a beverage for the next and so on.
So the last finisher gets a free one, but he or she is responisble to make sure everyone gets home safetly.
