Me and the Devil

There is a "post your garmin connect" over in the 41 and I was going to slip this in there, but decided it would be better suited to this forum.

The Ontario Randonneurs hosted their own version of" Hell week" which they entitled" Devil week." Thats 4 brevets in a weeks time. This year it was Saturday, June 5th 200k, Sunday, June 6th 300k, Tuesday, June 8th 400k, and Thursday/ Friday June 10/11 600k.

Well I signed up and completed the series.
This was my first time randonneuring.
I expected it to be hard......it was much harder.
The Devil is in the hills.

Here are the garmin links:

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/36254076
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/36254062

http://connect.garmin.com/activity/36779470
http://connect.garmin.com/activity/36779438


The distances are a bit off because I kept forgetting to turn on the timer.
And the 600 is in two parts because I lost satellite reception after the sleep control and turned the unit off to reset it.......Then I forgot to turn the timer on for almost an hour! argh!

Anyway, I brag on myself.....LOL.

This sport is quite addicting.......Im thinking of the 1000k offered at the end of july.
If my family can spare me.

Cyril, fantastic job! From the sounds of it the club did a great job pulling off this first ever devil week. I'm glad people such as yourself partook and hopefully this event will be a keeper.

Isabelle and Keith, the event organizers, were magnificent.
The event itself was well attended for an inaugural event, I think.
12 riders for the 200k
9 for the 300k
5 for the 400k and
8 for the 600k

next year should see more folks as the word spreads......I know I want to do this again!

Congratulations! That's a great accomplishment.

You should check out the Super Week organized by BC Randos for the next challenge. It is a full brevet series plus a 1000km brevet in a week. For the 600km brevet, you get to go up both the Coquihalla summit and Allison pass.
