Upcoming BREVETS – April 26, 2014

Hello everyone,

Reminder for those doing the 300K you need lights and reflective gear! See below.

Good news:

The 200K and 300K Brevets for April 26, 2014 were approved by RUSA earlier this week. This is due to our successful event on March 22, 2014!!!

Plans are to start ride promptly at 7:00 AM…so that is wheels down time! Be there early (6:30 AM) so I can explain rules and answer any questions, get forms signed, etc. I should be at the Port Isabel lighthouse no later than 6:15 AM. I do plan to ride myself so if you are late you might miss the ride. Can always contact me via cell phone. (956-642-6108)

There is no entry fee or official SAG support. By definition a Rando is a self supported ride, you must have someone you can contact in case you get stranded although I will do everything I can to make sure you get a ride if needed. Please review the links below. I highly encourage you to register on the RUSA website for a modest yearly fee of $20 so you can get your ride recognized and support RUSA. Also RUSA provides a nice magazine as part of your yearly subscription.

As a reminder if you are going to ride in one of the events on April 26th I would really appreciate it if you would complete the registration form and send it in via email. Just an email to rgvrandos@gmail.com with which event (200K or 300K) you plan to do would be greatly appreciated.

I put updated cue cards on the website and documents for the April 26th event. Please review these links for RUSA rules and Brevet info. If you have any questions please ask via email or via a comment to this post. If I don’t have the answer I will get it for you!!

Pay particular attention to the requirements for lighting and reflective gear for those doing the 300K event. Safety is a number one priority. Requirements are listed in one of the links above. Riders will not be allowed to ride the 300K without proper lighting and reflective gear, no exceptions.

Looking forward to riding again on April 26th. Even with the short notice I know we have some riders who are going to ride.

So let’s make our second event a success! I plan to ride the event myself, see you there.
