RUSA membership is not required to participate. However, only RUSA members can buy a nifty medal to commemorate their achievement.
Your bicycle must be equipped with front and rear lights, even if you expect to finish in daylight. After dusk, you must use your lights. You must carry adequate reflective garments, preferably conforming to RUSA reflectivity guidelines. If you are observed riding in low light conditions with inadequate lights or reflectivity, you will be disqualified.
Familiarize yourself with procedures for riding a brevet, incuding collection of times and signatures on the control card. The card must be signed and turned in at the finish.
What to expect
This is a self-supported ride. There is no SAG. Food and drinks are available at markets along the route. Randonneuring rules prohibit personal support vehicles or other personal support except at the controles, which are marked on the route.
This is an all-conditions ride. There will be some kind of weather. Maybe it will be wonderful, and maybe it won't. Come prepared. Unless you feel your life or health are at risk, ride through.
Expect this to be a little tougher than a typical club century ride. You need not be a fast rider, but it takes some discipline to move efficiently through the controles. Remember, the clock doesn't stop, even when you do! The slower you ride, the more important is your “controle discipline.”
Most important: Be safe, and enjoy the ride.
