River Loop 100

It’s a hot winter’s day in Brisbane. It will reach 30°C despite only being August. Blue skies will reflect on the river as I glimpse it throughout the ride. 309 more words



For once I get to ride a brevet that is not a permanent. Working weekends usually precludes me from joining the social side of randonneuring. But today I have a small window and the time limit for this 100km Brevet Australia ends before my work shift commences. 630 more words

I’m not sure why I think of the SFR Dual Populaire and Picnic as an End of Season event (Extravaganza? Celebration?) – the weather in this part of Northern California does not shut down riding for the winter months, and there are certainly more rides on the SFR calendar. 1,466 more words


2017 SFR La Ruta Loca Randonnee (LRLR) 200k

silver morning at Crissy Field

We were early to the start, since Eric had volunteered to help. The fog horns were booming call and response across the bay. 2,008 more words

2016 SFR Los Cabos Sueltos 200k

Another kindler gentler (than La Ruta) mixed terrain from Carlos, although this one is 200k rather than the Populaire length. There was a solid turnout of the usual suspects, and, after the benediction from the route designer himself, we rolled off into the silver morning from Crissy Field. 703 more words
