Anchorage North 100K / 200K

Ride Date: Saturday, 10/3/2015 @ 08:00 AM

Description:  Only two rides left and then we're done for the year–up next are our Anchorage North rides!  Both the 100K and 200K start at Carr's on Huffman and head north to Mirror Lake.  At Mirror Lake, the 100K turns around and comes back, while the 200K continues on to Palmer before turning around and heading back.

Who knows what the weather will be on Saturday–do you feel lucky?

See you there!

Special Instructions:
1) Bring a pen!

As is the nature of randonneuring, brevets are always unsupported. Be prepared.

Beware of riding in a paceline with riders you're unfamiliar. Insure your cables and chain are in running condition before the ride. Check your tubes and patch kit from last season. Does your pump still work? Fenders with mud flaps are strongly encouraged, or you'll face the scorn and abuse of your fellow randonneurs drafting you when the skies open up or when the roads become muddy. This is also a great time to try out lights, bags, racks, food, etc. Rear lights, in non-flashing mode only, are strongly encouraged for every ride. Remember, the spirit of randonneuring emphasizes self-sufficiency. If your derailleur cable breaks, you gotta fix it. Also, it's your responsibility to have your brevet card properly completed at each control point. DO NOT LOSE YOUR BREVET CARD!

Please be polite/courteous/civil to convenience store attendants. It's your responsibility to know the Alaska state and local road laws. Ride no more than two up. White light front, red light rear between dusk and dawn.

Reminders: Join or renew your RUSA membership.

Most Important: All riders are reminded that any failure to conduct the ride in accordance with RUSA rules (www.rusa.org), applicable laws, or any special instructions or equipment requirements for this ride may result in a time penalty or disqualification. Sorry, I had to say that. Right now would be a good time to read RUSA's Rules for Riders (http://www.rusa.org/brvreg.html) Also, you've got to wear your helmet.
