    Unleash Your Inner Belgian - Ronde van Anchorage This Sunday

    It's not a race, so you can ride it as fast or as slow as you'd like. Just be sure you make it around the big loop of Anchorage, from checkpoint to checkpoint, within the time limits. It's the real 'Rando' way!

    The Bread & Water 100K populaire is back for a fabulous third year, with a new start (The Peanut Farm) and a new name: De Ronde van Anchorage. We thought it was more fitting since we think sausages, beer, and bikes seem to go so well together, especially after a quick-paced, adventurous tour of track, trail, and hill. And the Peanut Farm is a fabulous place for pre-ride carbo loading, and post ride après vélo recovery. (We love watching the Spring Classics, the Giro, and the Tour there!)

    The time limits are generous, the ride is entirely self-supported, and the course will take you through all the highlights of our great city. If you've never ridden this course before, you're in for some pleasant surprises, some real gems, and only one great big hill.

    Invite/cajole your friends to join you on this great ride. There is just a little bit of dirt, but we've had every sort of cycling contraption on this course before from tandems to trikes, carbon to steel. If it rolls, and you're the motor, it'll be perfect for this ride!

    As we say, our courses are interesting, challenging, and beautiful. You won't be disappointed.
    Registration: 7:00-7:45
    Start: 8:00
    Fee: $10
    See website for special parking instructions!!

    Come ride with us!

    Bring your camera, and be sure to shoot lots of photos!

    I would love to do this and was planning to this year. One question though why was it scheduled the same weekend as the Mayor's Marathon. I can't be the only cyclist who likes to run too.

    Sorry for the conflict. You're definitely not the only cyclist/runner!

    We set our annual ride schedule in August of each year, and try to minimize conflicts w/ other events and holidays, while leaving our rides spaced in a logical manner so riders working to complete the full Super Randonneur brevet series (200K, 300K, 400K, & 600K) have enough recovery time between events, yet are still able to finish the 600K right around Solstice, which is the deadline to qualify for Paris-Brest-Paris.

    There are a lot of moving parts to setting the schedule, and we try to stay aware of all the events during out short but busy summers.

    If you can't make it for the Ronde, I hope you'll join us for the Palmer Backroads 100K!

    Here's our schedule for the rest of the summer:
