Your favorite randonner went out and accomplished that big goal this year. For the sixth day of the 12 Days of Randonneurmas, how about getting them some clothing or other item that was made for the event?
Here is the vest that organizer John Lee Ellis commissioned for the Colorado High Country 1200K randonneee this year. MG and I enjoyed the ride so much I made sure to get the vest afterwards to show off our completion and to spread the word on the road about it.
Most of the time organizers end up with extra clothing for sale if you inquire on behalf of the finisher in your household.
Or, one could track down a jersey or other club item from the organizers.
When MG and I rode the Cascade 1200 back in 2006, I was so pumped about completing it that I bought a Seattle International Randonneurs wool jersey at the finish that still stands as my unofficial event jersey.
Whatever you’re able to find, it’s sure to be welcomed as an item that shows you’re proud of them!
Tomorrow: good times.
