Rando

Randonneuring is all about long distance endurance rides. Notice the word rides, and not races. While they are timed events, no award is given to the first person to finish. I could dribble on and on about it, but this guy is one smart dude!

Thanks to my supportive wife, I am able to take the time and participate in randonneuring events. I used roll with the Houston Randonneurs.

In 2011, I logged over 3000 km with RUSA.  I participated with 6 different clubs (although I may not have finished all of them) and started Brevets in 4 different states (Texas, Utah, Wisconsin and Arizona).  I also completed two 1200km or Grand Randonee rides, The Texas Rando Stampede and Paris-Brest-Paris.

In 2012, with a newborn child, I completed a 200km ride with the Salt Lake Randos, a few rides of my own Permanent, and I focused a lot of my time with my family (hey honey, we need a tandem and trailer).

In 2013, to quote Barack Obama, “it will be more of the same.”  My main focus was spending time with my family.  We acquired a bike trailer and a DaVinci tandem, but most of the Rando rides will be populaires.
