Beanstalk Metric Century – RUSA Populaire
Sunday 08/2/08, 8:00 AM start
Join us this Sunday, August 2, 2009 for the first in a series of RUSA
populairs in memory of cyclist and Hotter-N-Hell (HHH) fanatic Mark
Sachnik. The next three Sunday's will feature a different ride of 62
km or longer and all riders are welcome. You need not be a member of
RUSA or LSR to ride. There are no entry fees. These rides are FREE.
This Sunday, August 2nd, we will roll out of Princeton for the
Beanstalk Metric Century. Ride start at 8:00 AM from the parking lot
at the corner of N 2nd Street and E College Ave across from Lacy
Elementary School in Princeton, TX. Bring a friend! This is an
excellent opportunity to introduce someone to LSR, the sport of
randonneuring and possibly test the long distance waters for some.
The main requirements for this ride are:
1. Sign the waiver
2. Wear a helmet
3. Carry a control card, get it "validated" at the turnaround and turn
it in at the finish.
In exchange for the above, ride insurance is provided.
There are no official ride/pace leaders. Ride at your own pace or with
a group. There is no formal SAG support and no rest stops - you may
choose to purchase food/drinks at stores along the route. The ride is
non-competitive and all finishers from first to last are given equal
Please RSVP, even if tentative, so that we have enough control cards
for everyone. Hope to see ya there!
