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.
This route does go past a nesting pair of bald eagles early in the ride and it does have a fair amount of climbing. Ridewithgps shows it as only a little over 8K feet but I don’t believe it for a second, I think it’ll be over 10K, so you’ll want to bring legs, or gears, or both! None of the climbs are super steep but there are several extended climbs in the 8%-11% range.
Details: We’ll leave from the rear parking lot of the Ramada Inn at 1450 Veterans Drive at 06:00 sharp. Lights and reflective gear are required for this brevet and riders should arrive no later than 05:30 for registration and check in. Please advance register on link to Driftless Randonneurs.
