Thanks everyone for the nice comments on the D.C. Randonneurs 200K this last Saturday in Warrenton, Va. I have to give a lot of credit to MG, Maile Neel, daughter DF, and of course Crista Borras, the route designer, and Bill Beck, our new RBA. All of them pitched in to help make the event a big success.
Bill has posted the results at the D.C. Randonneurs results page. He has also posted photos from the ride and the little afterparty at his Flickr page along with a map and elevation profile at his Motionbased page.
Mike Dayton, one of a trio of N.C. Randonneurs to join us, has written up his report at his Research Trailer Park blog. The report is below Jerry Phelp’s daily reports from RAGBRAI, which, today, goes near MG’s hometown of Radcliffe, Ia. She’s ridden it twice…one of these years we’re going to ride it together.
The next event for DCR is the RUSA 10th Anniversary ride on Aug. 16 in Poolesville, Md. Unfortunately I can’t attend — DF and I are headed to my mom’s in Illinois for our annual summer visit. It will be a great ride, I’m sure.
This Saturday the fun continues as MG and I lead Crista’s Washington-Paris-Washington Double Century from Hain’s Point in D.C. to Paris, Va. and back. If you are reading this and want to join us see the details on the weekend rides link on the DCR site. The usual accolades apply to Crista’s route, so you know it’s a great ride. Plus, you get to ride your bike to Paris, no airfare whatsoever!
