It’s not too early to be fielding Arrow & Dart Teams for the Fall Team Event weekend (Sept 24). These are fun events where teams of 3-5 plan their own route to Brattleboro, VT and have 8-24 hours to ride their route of 120km – 360km+.
Note that registration closes 24-48 hours before most events and on July 1 for the 600k, a week before the event. There is no day-of-event registration for any events so don’t forget to register before the deadline. RUSA membership is also required for all events so make sure you’re current for 2022.
Riders can also become members of New England Randonneurs! NER yearly membership supports our events and in 2022 members will receive a free NER water bottle at the start of their first ride of the year.
Brevet Cards in 2022: For most events riders will receive a traditional paper brevet card. Please keep this card with you during the ride and return it to the organizer at the finish. For proof of passage at intermediate controls, riders can choose to: Get their card initialed, get a receipt at the control store (if applicable), record a GPS track, or take a time-stamped photo of their bike at the control.
2022 Event Results can be found at our dedicated results website. Results are generally posted 24-48 hours after the event has concluded.
Re-posting ride organizer Mike A’s post to the google group:
There’s a small update to NER policies and RUSA membership: you must have your permanent (digits only, not starting with T) RUSA membership in order to start an NER event. We don’t want to have to turn anyone away, but we will do so if we can’t verify your membership. If you are planning to ride this coming weekend, the time to check your RUSA membership is RIGHT NOW.
If you are joining or renewing to ride a ride within the next few weeks, you should pay with PayPal as checks can get delayed in the mail.
This is an administrative requirement of RUSA for us to be accredited to put on events. If the cost of joining RUSA plus the cost of attending your first event is prohibitive to you joining us, please do contact us; we don’t want cost to stop someone from trying the sport!
