The VT Events have been announced! There will be a full SR series in Vermont plus a 100k in April and 200k in September. We are very thankful to the VT Volunteers for putting these togethers.
Right now the dates, times, and costs can be found in the master Event Calendar (link on menubar above) but within a week or two the full details and online registration will be posted.
In Boston news, the first “Sunday Series” ride was on February 23rd and it was a great success as 18 riders came out for an overcast but not too horribly cold day. Everyone who intended to finish did so and results will be posted soon.
The route was so nice it will be used again this coming March 2nd. Please join us at Ride Studio Cafe in Lexington at 9:30am. NER Members and Season pass holders ride this event FREE, other are $5.
Registration Now Open
Registration for all Boston area events is now open. You can find links to the BikeReg pages by looking at the Event Calendar or by going to any of the event detail pages.
Check out our new Sunday Series of 100-199km events! Each month we’ll host a RUSA populaire at a metro Boston cafe or bike shop. These rides are a great way to keep riding and earn a P-12 award.
Please consider becoming a member of NER if you’d like to show additional support for our events. Membership is $15 will pay for itself in three events.
If you plan to ride many events, we have a $90 season pass for sale. (NER Member cost is $80.) With the season pass you can ride all of the Boston and Vermont events without any additional fees provided you still pre-register before each event.
Finally, we want to say THANK YOU to all our 2013 volunteers by giving them a free 2014 Membership & Season Pass. If you volunteered you should have received a coupon via email which waives the cost of registration for both the membership and season pass. If you volunteered and did not receive your code, contact Volunteer coordinator Emily O’Brien. (Please don’t register until you receive your code as we can’t refund the fee.)
Fleche and Dart Destinitation Annouced
This year the destination will be Providence, RI. More information and registration documents on the Fleche and Dart info pages.
The Dart is new this year. It is similar to a Fleche but the distance is only 200k and the time limit 13.5 hours so it can be completed entirely in daylight. Riders may select any start location but they must be on the road by 6:30am on Saturday, May 17th and finish in Providence at 8pm.
Registration for both events is due no later then April 19th so now is the time to start planning. If you are looking for a team to join or team members to join you, post a message to the NER Google Group and you’ll likely find someone.
