Rides are NOT supported therefore be prepared to care for yourself. Vehicles will not be allowed to follow the riders. Outside support may be taken only at the designated control points.

All rides start on time – rain, snow or shine (prepare for the worst, hope for the best). Route cards and maps will be handed out up to 15 minutes prior to start time- please be early. Route cards must be signed at a business establishment in the designated control towns. The rides are not races- if you arrive prior to the control open time, you must wait for the time before proceeding. If you arrive after the close time, your ride will not be certified.

The cards will be certified and returned to you at the end of the season. Super Randonneur medals will be awarded to all riders completing the series of 200km, 300km, 400km, and 600km rides in the same year.
