November ride/party and NER 2024 Schedule!

News #1: End-of-year Annual Meeting/Party, and ride on November 4th! Come for the ride, the party, or both!  Starting and finishing at Jake’s house in Medford, and we’ll have a virtual meeting option for the official annual meeting part.  (Sign up for the free party-only option on BikeReg to get the Zoom link emailed to you.)

News #2: The 2024 Schedule is being added to the website!  Links current still lead to a previous years’ page for the event, and registration pages aren’t live yet, but should give riders an idea of what the event will look like.   Each page will be updated with this year’s details as start times and route tweaks are finalized.

We have a new addition to the NER schedule this year: a late summer/fall “mini-series” (200k, 300k, 400k) for riders who would like to try randonneuring with a summer’s training in their legs (and for anyone who would like to ride later into the season).   Routes are still tentative for some of these events.

There’s also been some interest/questions about reviving the monthly 100k training series; while we are not currently calendaring a training series, the new Permanent program at RUSA is very simple to sign up for.  (If there are past NER routes not in the system that people would like to see added, please let us know!)  We encourage riders who want to do more shorter training rides to sign up for permanents together, and use the Google Group/email list to coordinate.

Postponement of Sep 16, 2023 300km for 1 week Due to Forecast

Hello all:

Due to the increasingly likely track of Hurricane Lee making landfall somewhere on the coast of Gulf of Maine, we have decided to postpone the ride for 1 week to Sep 23, 2023.  There is a new registration link on BikeReg if anyone wants to take the opportunity to register for the new date.  (Please see ride page for the link.) All registrant of the Sep 16 ride date will be “manually transferred” to the start list of Sep 23, 2023.  If you have any question or concern please reach out to RBA via email at  We appreciate everyone’s understanding of the situation and we thank our volunteers who can accommodate the pivot of the date.  Let’s hope that the storm would not cause significant damages and stay safe for our friends in Coastal Maine this coming weekend.
