Happy New Year folks!

You’ve no doubt already dusted off your trainer, are putting work in the gym, and making selections for your main 2023 rides like PBP… Right?!

We hope you’ve left some room on your calendar for Ohio Randonneuring!

Take a look at our 2023 ACP schedule. This year, we’ve got something for everyone. Our early season rides will each have alternate “flat” and “PBP training routes.” PBP riders may have the option of pre riding one or more of the routes to give themselves more chances to qualify. (As protocol, we will still expect you to volunteer in some way throughout the season if you choose to preride.) Please contact Alex directly if this interests you.

Routes are being reviewed currently, and some of them are available to view on this website already. Our first event begins in Xenia, but we will be visiting southern central/western Ohio this year in search of hills and empty roads.

  • 3/18 - ACP 200k / RUSA 100k
  • 4/8 - ACP 200k X2
  • 4/22 - ACP 300k X2
  • 5/6 - Flèche
  • 5/27 - ACP 400k
  • 6/10 - ACP 600k

Later in the year, we are planning to host an SR600k (9/23) and possibly a dart. I need to hear from you if you’d like to ride the dart, nothing is set in stone yet! Other RUSA brevets may be scheduled periodically throughout the year.

Lastly, as previously promised, this will be my last year as your RBA. Applications are open for acceptance now to find a proper replacement. The earlier you get in, the better chance you have for proper preparation and successful continuation of the program in Ohio! Please contact me if interested in this, or any other volunteering opportunities.

Now get back to your base!

There was talk in the region about running an SR600k.  The current plan is to schedule the SR600 in the fall after PBP.  600km with 8,000+m of climing in 40 hours or less.  Will be wild.

 


Electronic Proof of Passage (EPP)

This permits us to go mostly paperless.

If electing to use electronic proof of passage, you will need to upload your ride to a publicly available site (e.g., strava, ridewithgps).  Please ensure your ride is set to 'public' or similar availability.

After the ride, you will get an email with a link to a page where you should fill in your finish time and provide a link to your uploaded ride (e.g., https://www.strava.com/activities/1234 or https://ridewithgps.com/trips/1234).  Please do so as soon as you can so that final results may be submitted to RUSA.
You can even leave public comments on the ride from that same form.

In anticipation of potential GPS file corruption, it is recommended that you use a secondary (or even tertiary) documentation such as timestamped photos at each control and/or a completed brevet card.
