Tour of the Driftless 1000K
628.4 miles, 24,659 feet of climbing

Audax Club Parisien Certified

start time 04:00

Here’s the scoop:

  1. ACP certified so it counts for R5000, R10000 awards.
  2. Ideal for those chasing RUSA cups – 1000K’s are hard to find! Most are 1000K options tacked on to 1200K’s and if you’ve ridden 1000K you might as well get credit for the full Grand Randonnee.
  3. Goes through 4 states (WI, MN, IL, IA) for those chasing American Explorer states. How often can you do that in a single ride outside of New England?
  4. Low cost ($40).
  5. Three loops out of a hotel so no screwing around with drop bags.
  6. Host hotel rooms have fridge and microwave so you can stock up with whatever is your pleasure. Finish riding, throw some food in the microwave while you shower, eat, hit the sack.
  7. 3 days of riding in the beautiful Driftless region – does it get any better?
  8. As a pre-PBP year preference for PBP registration is given to those who’ve done longer rides so you’ll be in ahead of those who’ve only done an SR series.
  9. Excellent training for Paris Brest Paris in August!

Driftless Randonneurs is based out of beautiful Western Wisconsin, where some of the best riding in the country is based.  SW Wisconsin has plenty of hills and is characterized by many hills and valleys over low traffic roads. The Regional Brevet Administrator (RBA) for this region is Greg Smith.  

The Driftless Randonneurs ride schedule for 2019 features some old favorites and some new routes and formats with the emphasis on getting qualified and prepared for Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP). All brevets start in the back parking lot of the White House Ramada Inn, 1450 Veterans Drive, Richland Center.

Details: We’ll leave from the rear parking lot of the Ramada Inn at 1450 Veterans Drive at 05:00 sharp.  Lights and reflective gear are required for this brevet and riders should arrive no later than 04:30 for registration and check in. Please advance register on link to Driftless Randonneurs.
