Anyone want to trade flying 200s for a 200km brevet this weekend? This Saturday (4/29) is the first brevet in a series offered by the Great Lakes Randonneurs. Completion of the series allows for qualification for a 1200km brevet like the Boston-Montreal-Boston. It starts at the Super 8 Motel in Delavan, WI at 8 am.
Consider it a valley cat (sorry) (there are the checkpoints). I'm wearing a mess. bag, will ride 49x17, I have a bruised butt check from recently getting hit by a ford taurus, and all the people I know are vets at this (including RAAM qualifiers) so it should be ridiculous.
I'm posting this here for people who recently did a double metric (gorn, efarrar...) or anyone else who might be interested.
