Cast your cruelty aside, April. We’re riding anyways!

Come join us in Talkeetna next Saturday, April 13th, for the launch of the 2013 Alaska randonneuring season.

Talkeetna is a great destination town for us with its wonderful hotels, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, and brewery. The Talkeetna Roadhouse is rolling out the red carpet for us with a special early-morning riders’ breakfast to help fuel our ride. Rooms are available for next Friday night, so you don’t have to do that pre-dawn, blurry-eyed drive on Saturday morning before the ride. Plus, the state DOT does a magnificent job at clearing the road shoulders, making for fantastic early-season cycling.

All the details, including documents, for our Talkeetna 100K/200K rides are HERE.

We’ve put together a full summer of incredibly scenic, adventurous, rich and challenging rides for you all across our beautiful state. Make this the summer you ride them all!

To encourage that idea, we’re offering a special deal. Pay for a full Super Randonneur series (200K, 300K, 400K, 600K) for the regular price of $150, and ride any and all of our other rides for F-R-E-E! (except the BWR, of course.) That's a tremendous value, and it's simply because we want you to just get out and ride.

No doubt you’ve noticed how many new 200K rides we’ve added to our calendar the past few seasons. The 200K distance is sort of the magic length for a full day on the bike. But, we’re also really working to encourage riders to discover how approachable our 300K, 400K, and 600K rides are for the typically fit cyclist. Our courses are intelligently designed to serve the needs of long-distance cyclists, both novice and experienced. And even our most remote courses offer plenty of controls along the way to resupply and sustain your ride to the finish.

If you’ve ridden any of our 200K rides before, consider exploring the challenge of a longer ride this summer. A full Super Randonneur series is a tremendous cycling achievement. With a dash of determination, you’ll find that it’s surprisingly within reach.
