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

A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who helped make this year a success.
Pre-riders: Craig Feringa, Gerald Schilling, Robert Bennett, John Klinger, Jeremy Gray and David Cruse.
Sign-inn at finish: Matthew Sallman, Gerald Schilling and Robert Bennett.
Most importunately those who stepped up to organize and run the 200/400/600k:
David Cruse, Jeremy Gray, Matthew Sallman, Jeff Efcote and Scott Elliott for running the AAA 200k.

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.

*The Ohio Randonneurs will host a multi-region flèche in 2016.
The original French fleche format found clubs from all over the country meeting on Easter morning for a communal breakfast after riding
for 24 hours and a minimum of 360 km. Columbus is within 200 miles of Indianapolis, Detroit and Pittsburgh making it feasible to have a French-style ride
here in the Midwest. Besides being a low-key and collegial way to ride, the fleche is part of the requirement for the ACP R5000.
Contact David Buzzee <d_buzzee@yahoo.com> Ohio RBA, flèche corridnator, to sign up, and for more info: http://www.rusa.org/flecherules.html

These brevets are RUSA and ACP certified.
