Windiest Platteville Poke-Along Ever!

20 starters and 19 finishers rode the Platteville Poke-Along 200k. This was not only the windiest PP ever but likely the largest turnout, including five first-time riders (welcome!). The fierce wind led to record fast times getting to Platteville, according to Ben Sigmond, then a painful crawl the rest of the ride up to Masonville and back to the Louisville finish.

Pascal Ledru reported that power lines had blown down in Hygiene, flanked by emergency vehicles. Randos had to walk around them. A tough way to get in your November 200k!

James Canyon Jaunt "Support Ukraine" Brevet

13 starters and 13 finishers rode the James Canyon Jaunt "Support Ukraine" 200k. It was a glorious, sunny fall day to ride the James Canyon Jaunt.

The "Support Ukraine" initiative came from the organizer of the Lviv/Mariupol randonneuring region in Ukraine, and was adopted by the Audax Club Parisien. We raised $324 in donations for Ukraine, plus the $65 in RUSA rider fees which RUSA will also donate. This will be combined with similar events from other RUSA regions, and randonneuring regions around the world.

First Ever Carter Lake Cakewalk Brevet!

6 starters and 6 finishers rode the inaugural Carter Lake Cakewalk 200k. Originally scheduled to use the VGV (Vail - Glenwood Springs - Vail) route, we felt it was not dependable to determine whether the Glenwood Canyon path was actually open. So we opted for a nice Front Range fall route. The Carter Lake Cakewalk is a long-time Permanent, just cloned as a brevet route for this event.

Riders had good conditions for most of the ride, despite an 80% rain chance in the forecast. Things turned, though, late afternoon as a rain/hail mix moved through. As Trent Cooper remarked, marble-sized hail can hurt!

A big welcome to our friends John & Ann Jurczynski who visit the Boulder area from time to time and have sampled our Permanents when here. This is their first Colorado brevet!

An even Brighter, Sunnier Dart?

9 starters and 9 finishers on two veteran teams - but with a first-time member or two - rode the Colorado Front Range Dart. Weather was once again bright and sunny, matching the mood of the teams!

Thanks to captains Mike Turek and Vernon Smith for coming up with good routes and leading their teams!

Mike writes: "Team DarTrek set off from Sam's Club in Thornton to make it easier for our newest randonneur to ride to start….we headed along South Platte, Clear Creek and 36 bike paths encountering murals and people along the way… A gentle loop through Lyons stopping for great bbq sandwiches at Dave’s led us to Apple Valley. Up to Carter lake we went…and of course we stopped to visit friend of Flèches and Darts Britt! Watched the Aggies beat Texas in overtime! My house continued a tradition of ramen and G&Ts ... then a race to the end! So good to see Team Wild Cat Ptarmigans at the end!"

Team Wild Cat Ptarmigans stopped for scones and breakfast burritos a the Winot Cafe in Niwot, burgers and sodas at the A&W store in Berthoud, Cokes in Masonville, and quiche and potato chips at the Mtn Ftn in Hygiene. They also got treated to a vintage car parade around Carter Lake.

Poudre Canyon

4 starters and 3 finishers rode the Poudre Canyon 400k and 600k. A chilly start, but clear, sunny weather for these late-season longer brevets. Gary DelNero and Paul Toigo traveled all the way from Kansas and Missouri, respectively. This ride let them complete their Super Randonneur series, and qualify for earlier pre-registration at PBP'23, a better choice of start times.

Thanks to Jason Metzler for leading!

Roughest Last Chance in Years!

12 starters and 7 finishers rode the Last Chance 1200k grand randonnée, while 4 starters and 3 finishers rode the Last Chance 1000k brevet.

Some of the roughest conditions in years, with windy 100° weather the first day, windy cool weather the second, blustery thunderstorms that night, and near-freezing temps the final morning. A tribute to every rider, with congratulations to our stalwart finishers.

Huge thanks to Brent Myers, Beth Long, and Debbie Bush for extraordinary support at the overnight locales, transporting food, drink, and drop bags, and rescuing riders -- Debbie for third and fourth day, Brent and Beth for all four days.

First Audax Brevet Ever!

8 starters and 8 finishers rode the Kersey Kick Audax 200k.

Dustin Harding reports: "After a 5 to 10 minute briefing on how the day was going to be planned out, the eight of us departed Louisville at 8 am, with our first goal being Milliken at 67.4 km (this is where we would take our first 20 minute planned break).

After some needed refreshments in Milliken, we headed to our lunch destination of Kersey, where we would have 1.5 hours to relax and enjoy ourselves. Typically, the food of choice at the Kersey stop is the variety of burritos that are available at the convenience store. We elected to try something different this time. Brent suggested the pizza place across the street from the convenience store, so we all headed over to Kersey Pizza to enjoy a couple of pies as a group.

This also allowed time to catch up, get more acquainted with some of the newer members, and to get out of the sun. I really enjoyed this time. With full bellies, we departed Kersey and made our way south. I knew this was going to be a challenging section to our next stop in Hudson as we had a 10 to 15 mile an hour tailwind out of the north. I just had to watch the speed and soft pedal. We arrived at our last scheduled stop of the day in Hudson, and just at the right time, I might add, the weather was definitely on the move. After gathering some snacks, the rain started to come down at a steady clip, we just enjoyed our snacks inside/on the east side of the store where there is shelter from the rain. After 20 minutes, we all decided to wait a touch longer as the rain was getting a bit lighter.

We left Hudson in light rain as we rode to our final destination of Louisville. We were now on the home stretch of the brevet, with about 40 or so miles to go. And then we all arrived where we started 11 hours and 36 minutes ago in the Conoco parking lot. The arrival timing was perfect as the weather was really moving in, it allowed us all just enough time to get our bikes loaded, take a group photo, and to say our goodbyes before the skies opened up with a crazy downpour. Thank you Brent, Beth, Trent, CJ, Tom, David, and Oksana for a great day on the ramble!"

A big welcome back to Beth and Brent after an absence during which they were missed.

And thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

Bigger Indy 200 Turnout!

3 starters and 3 finishers rode the Indy 200. This was a trebling of last year's turnout! Jim Howell called this the "toughest 200k I've done, but also one of the prettiest." Welcome back to Ray Rupel from his "rando hiatus" the past year!

Dave Nelson reports: "It was a great day to ride Independence Pass in the morning. A bit more difficult in the afternoon as things heated up in Aspen and up-Valley back to BV. Good roads, less than good traffic. Near the bottom of the roll-out at the base of the pass Dave Nelson managed to catch the edge of big pot hole camouflaged in the shade and pretty much ruined his rear wheel. A quick 1.5 hour finding a shop and repairing the wheel to less-than-true and he was able to ride back up to BV, tire scraping the frame all the way home. No Prob, this means I get a new tire AND a new hoop. At the start we had clear skies, crisp air, and moderate wind out of the northwest. We started out cool and casual until Ray took off like Bolt, soon followed by Jim Howell. These PBP vets rode well, beating me into Aspen by 15-30 minutes. Howell is a machine and Ray is, well, Ray-The-Beast-Rupel. On the return we picked up a quartering tail wind which made the blast back to BV a joy. This is the best 200 KM I’ve seen/ridden."

Thanks to David Nelson for leading!

First Lefthand - Glen Haven Solstice Brevets!

9 starters and 9 finishers rode the St. Vrain Canyon 400k/600k/1000k "Solstice" brevets. This new route climbs Lefthand Canyon rather than St. Vrain Canyon, and descends via Glen Haven, because road work has closed St. Vrain Canyon to cyclists. The result was more time on the Peak-to-Peak Highway, enjoyed by all, and delicious cinnamon rolls at the Glen Haven Store.

Thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

ACP 300k Centenary Medal
 
Hottest Brevet Ever??

15 starters and 13 finishers rode the Lefthand - Glen Haven 300k. This 300k was added to commemorate the centenary of the ACP's first 300k brevet, on June 11, 1922.

With temperatures reaching 100°, Dustin Harding reports: "That heat was really tough, we all just had to stay on top of the fluids and salts to keep going. There were two DNF, Jason Turner and Andy Stockman." Jason and Andy were suffering from dehydration. Jason received IV fluids. Both Jason and Andy reported they had recovered.

JLE at MP15
 
Lefthand Canyon

9 starters and 7 finishers rode the Lefthand Canyon 400k and 600k brevets. This year, instead of descending St. Vrain Canyon, we turned around at MP 15 of Lefthand Canyon, this because a section of post-flood roadwork in St. Vrain Canyon is closed to cyclists until November.

Paul Foley reports: "We had four starters for each ride and three finishers for each ride (not including JLE on the pre-ride).

"The day started mildly chilly, but warmed up quickly after our first visit to Platteville, as the sun rose and we headed west for the climb up Lefthand Canyon. A glorious Colorado summer day, with a chilly morning, warm sunny afternoon, isolated rain, moderate swirling winds, and a crescent moon gave us the full gamut of a long brevet. Working together, especially after the climb, a group of five supported each other thru the ever changing day. After enduring a northerly wind out of Fort Collins, we rolled thru Wellington enjoying the tailwind that took us to Windsor. We could track the moving afternoon weather fronts with their dark clouds, that brought joy from tailwinds and curses for head winds, as we made our way to the vortex of Platteville for our second visit and finally back to Louisville.

"Reports from the 600k riders indicated 'Mostly favorable with light wind and clouds til Kersey, then headwinds most the way home' on their second leg."

7 starters and 6 finishers rode the North Park - Laramie - Cheyenne 600k. Half the riders rode straight through while the other half stopped for a break in Laramie or Cheyenne. This ride was postponed a week because of snow.

John Mangin reports: "Experienced a healthy dose of wind, but most of it was favorable. Temps were pleasant at the start of the ride, with light tailwinds. The afternoon featured heavy winds from the southwest. Depending on where riders were on the route, this was beneficial, especially after Walden. Riders going through the night got some helpful tailwinds into Cheyenne, and then mainly calm through the early hours of Sunday. Riders who stayed in Laramie on Saturday night experienced southwest winds to start the day on Sunday, and then sporadic storms with heavy rain and high winds. Overall, conditions were good, and it was a successful ride."

Nicest Poudre Canyon Brevet Weather Ever?

18 starters and 18 finishers rode the Poudre Canyon 300k, 400k, and 600k brevets. Pretty much ideal weather, dry and sunny, highs in the low 80's, with some overcast and light NE breeze to make the Saturday afternoon segment comfortable. This after a windy few weeks (including the days of the pre-rides)!

Rafting and kayaking have started up in Poudre Canyon, and the Mishiwaka is in full swing. But traffic light to moderate and not a lot of vacation traffic yet. The rest of the routes went nominally, except for the stiff headwind to Kersey which sharpened the burrito appetites for the 600k riders.

Chilliest, Windiest, Most Ambitious Flèche Ever?

17 starters and 16 finishers spread across four teams - we almost had five - completed another successful and fun Colorado Front Range Flèche. Weather was dry and clear, but chilly and windy, especially telling for the three teams that chose higher elevations for parts of their routes - Poudre Canyon, Rampart Range Trail, and Peak-to-Peak Highway. And the most unpaved distance of any Flèche so far, including the Rampart Range Trail, the Darma road out of Poudre Canyon, Pawnee Grassland (with a nice crop of goathead thorns), and Overland Trail (Super James). Temps topped out in the 60's, plunging to the mid-30's for a crisp overnight experience.

Largest Kersey Kick in a While!

24 starters and 21 finishers rode the Kersey Kick 200k. Mike writes: "This was our most Numerous Kersey Kick in many years. While we didn’t record Burrito consumption at the mandatory burrito control in Kersey, all reports indicate that we made a run on the store. We had a few new riders, including Paco VanSistine who joins us from Bike Touring fame and Sam Creighton. Welcome!

"We split up into groups - the fast group who had first choice on burritos, a large mid group, and a party group (who made a detour to Erie for some much needed refreshment). Based on pictures, we noticed that 4 of the 5 top finishers had fenders. While certainly not needed yesterday, we “fender folks” welcome the company and note that they don’t reduce your speed.

"The weather, chilly at the start, warmed to a nice cool mid 50’s - for the Middle group, the winds favored us on the ride out and shifted to easterly on the way back helping on the westerly legs.….

"All feedback was positive - we hope to have even more riders on our April Rides - On a Lark and Stove Prairie."

Thanks to Mike Turek for leading!

Mildest Randonnée This Season!

19 starters and 17 finishers rode the Carter Lake - Campion - Populaire 112k. After a crisp start, things warmed up nicely, roads still sandy after snow a few days ago, but shorts weather by the end of the ride. Those final miles were graced by the longstanding two-mile detour from Rd. 13 for pipeline repair. A nice day to do extra miles, at least!

Thanks to Dustin Harding for leading!

Coldest Rawhide Ramble Ever??

11 starters and 11 finishers rode the Rawhide Ramble 200k. This brevet had already been postponed a week due to snowfall leading up to the original date. Friday the 11th brought more snow, but thanks to good reporting that Pascal gathered, plus Jason Turner's pre-ride scouting - he drove parts of the course he thought might be icy - it was determined it would be safe to ride.

Temps were 13° at the start hovering in the 20's for most of the ride, under a sunny sky. Pascal started the main group at 9am to allow temps to warm and icy spots to melt. He reports: "There were few spots to be a little bit careful between Mead and Berthoud, then just wet in few places to La Porte, then totally dry after that. Slight tail wind on the way back from Rawhide, so actually a good ride!"

Thanks to Pascal Ledru for leading, and for the photos!

(1) first brevet!
Most Unexpectedly Pleasant Windsor Wanderer!

12 starters and 12 finishers rode the Windsor Wanderer 200k. We postponed this ride from January 8 because of snow chances. This is why we schedule the winter ones early in the month! Also, we started from South Boulder Rd. and Hwy. 42 so as to stay out of the way of Marshall Fire cleanup near our normal start.

Corinne Warren reports: "A chilly start offset by sunny skies greeted riders on this mid-January day, the first brevet of the year. With Mateo off the front, the riders broke into two loose groups at the start, only to fracture slightly a little later. A light tail wind made short work of the first half of the ride and on into the Windsor turn around, but the headwind on the return slowed everyone down a bit as the temperatures dropped into the late afternoon. Riders came in in ones and twos until the 'party group' arrived en masse, to finish out an unexpectedly pleasant winter ride."

Thanks to Corinne Warren for braving half a foot of snow at home in Monument to lead our ride!
