Willamette Randonneurs is a group of randonneurs and those interested in randonneuring in the southern Willamette Valley and surrounding areas. Willamette Randonneurs was formed in late 2016, with our first official season in calendar year 2017.

The regional brevet admistrator (RBA) for our region is Michal Young.

Rando-what?

2017 Events

The March 11 and June 24 events have been approved by Randonneurs USA and Audax Club Parisien as ACP brevets. Other events are tentative or in development; details will be posted as we have them.

Sat Mar 11
Alsea Loop 200k ACP brevet. 7:30am start from Market of Choice at 29th and Willamette. Details
April First Willamette Randonneurs populaire (100km), starting and ending at Wandering Goat Coffee. Details soon.
June 24 300k ACP brevet. Tentative route is to Florence via Triangle Lake, south to Reedsport, in on Smith River and Wolf Creek. 300km is 186 miles, but expect this to be a little harder than your average double century. We will have a staffed control in the most remote stretch, near the summit on the return via Smith River. Lights will be required, although some fast riders may be able to complete the ride in daylight.
August Dart (team ride) to Willamina. Teams of 3-5 bicycles ride together to Willamina. All teams meet in Willamina and party. (Tentative ... details coming in May.)
