R12 Success! Hertford-Edenton Permanent (128 mi)

Windsor-Woodland Permanent – Run #2 (126-mi)

The first weekend in November was beautiful! I was hesitant to hit the road for a permanent since I had been off the bike recovering from a knee injury for two weeks. I also felt I needed to get my legs … Continue reading

Suffolk-Skippers 205 km (132 miles)

I’m getting closer to my R12 goal. I didn’t make an attempt at a permanent on October 5/6 due to the Sea Gull Century. It was raining almost continuously for the next week or so. As a result, I opted … Continue reading

Inaugural Wavorly-Smithfield 209 km Permanent (130 miles)

My attempt at a Super Randonneur award for 2013 did not end  successfully.  Sure, I could probably piece together another attempt by finding late season 400/600 km brevets.  But I’m starting a new job in July and may have large … Continue reading

Windsor-Woodland Permanent (Reverse, 126-mi)

I had been looking forward to riding in my first ACP event, the Tappahannock 200k, from Ashland, VA on February 16th.  It was rescheduled to the 23rd due to snow and ice.  The 23rd was still cold and rainy.  No … Continue reading

Inaugural Windsor-Woodland Permanent (126-mi)

I never imagined a time when I’d complete my year’s first century in JANUARY.  Forecasters were abuzz about the wonderful weekend ahead with temperatures in the 70s and almost no chance of rain.  What cyclist can resist riding on such a weekend?!  … Continue reading
