Map of CourseHERE!

Bring all your friends! De Ronde van Anchorage 100K populaire starts at the Fire Island Bakery in Downtown Anchorage, and travels a huge loop around the Anchorage Bowl, circling back to end at where it started.

Spread some rando goodwill and get to there early for coffee and croissant…very European!

The Ronde van Anchorage is a benefit for the Bicycle Commuters of Anchorage.

The course is mostly flat, with one BIG hill. It uses the Chester Creek, Campbell Creek, and Tony Knowles Coastal Trail bike paths as much as possible. There is some road riding, on moderately busy to quiet streets. Rabbit Creek Hill is included to add some picante. And there is a short dirt section through Far North Bicentennial Park from Hill Top Ski Area to Basher Road. Tandems and skinny tires won't have any problems.

Whether you're an experienced randonnuer or randonneuse, or simply want to get a taste of what randonneuring is all about, this ride is a blast! Come ride some new roads with us.

Consider bringing a bike lock to lock your steed up if you need to at some of the controls.

As is the nature of randonneuring, these rides are always unsupported. Your determination to get the ride done is paramount.

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. Link to Alaska Bicycle Law. Bicycle are traffic, therefore you must abide by the traffic laws.

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.
