This phrase is often used to describe a second marriage, and it also seems to apply to my decision to join the US Randonneurs (RUSA). I've ridden very little until I purchased a bent a month ago, and my longest ride to date on it has been 30 miles on flat roads. My longest rides ever have been 100, 75, and 75 miles and those were done two years ago.
Still, if you don't have goals you'll never achieve them.
There will be a very hilly populaire in February. I note that all the "easy" rides take place when it's cold and nasty out, at least in the northern hemisphere.
I would love to be able to travel to France in two or three years and do either PBP or L'etape. One can dream.
Anyone on this forum a randonneur? I know there is a sub forum for this, but I want input from mere mortals.
