I’m going to make my trip to Seattle around the weekend of 5 March 2011 so I can participate in the Seattle International Randonneurs 100K populaire.
“Having moved to the PNW area I’m keen on checking out some local cycling events. One of the reasons I got interested in riding brevets was the Seattle International Randonneurs website had great stores and pictures of their events. Little did I know a 9 rider turn out at an Alberta brevet was a lot!
Anyways the SIR are having a 100K populaire on Saturday 5 March 2011.
This is a welcome ride to the public to get them interested in randonneering without the need to train for a long distance. I am going to attend by riding my bike to the harbour in Victoria and taking the ferry to Seattle. I figured I’d post something here since the Seattle area is host to a lot of cyclists and it would be cool to meet up with some of you in person.
If you are close enough to Seattle to attend and want to hook up let me know and I’ll organize a way to get together at the start and a place we can go after the ride for something to eat and drink.
I’ll be staying over the weekend intending to check out some bike shops and test ride some bents.”
If you are a blog reader who lives in the PNW and fancies a group ride that isn’t crazy long this might be the ticket. It would be fun to meet in person and chat about bikes over a beer or three…=-) I’ll be in town from Friday PM through Monday AM if another time suits you better – just drop me a line.
