Thanks for everyone who came out to the Boston 200k on April 22nd. Even with the bad weather 57 riders started and almost everyone finished one of NER’s harder routes.
On May 6th will be scenic “Bakery Brevet 200k” leaving from the Red Hen Bakery in Middlesex (just north of Montpelier) Vermont. This loop uses several Vermont bakeries and general stores as control locations and starts/finishes at what is often considered the best bakery in Vermont. It’s one of the easier (climbing per mile) Vermont routes but still has enough big climbs to be interesting. Registration and Information.
Update 4-16-17: Due to the manufacturer running short of supply, long sleeve jerseys are being delayed until late summer. Ordering will remain open until late June and delivery should be in August or early September. The Short sleeve jersey order is now closed. Short Sleeve jerseys should ship to riders in May.
At long last NER is doing another Wool Jersey order. This might have been the most frequently asked question of last year after, “How hard is the next section?” In order to have the jerseys for most of the season we’re only accepting pre-orders until April 16th with a delivery date in mid-may. Shipping is included in the price.
These will again be Oregon Cyclewear 100% Merino wool in green with blue “New England Randonneurs” written across the front and back. The 2015 series of jerseys have held up well provided they are not machine dried. They tend to run true to size.
Please place your order ASAP. It might be another year or two before we order another batch and we will not be ordering extras for stock. Also let me know if there is interest in another Synthetic jersey order.
To order go to the BikeReg Membership page. You need not purchase a Membership to place a jersey order.

It doesn’t really feel like it yet, but it’s technically spring now, which means brevet season is just around the corner.
So let’s celebrate! We’re having our annual season kickoff party on Thursday, April 6 at 7:00 PM at RideStudioCafe, in Lexington, MA. We’ll have snacks and drinks, plenty of time to chat and hang out, and Jake will give us the run-down of the upcoming season.
In addition to a fun time to get together with all those folks you haven’t seen since last year, this is a great opportunity to bring your “Rando-curious” friends along so they can get a preview of what it’s like.
Thanks as always to RideStudioCafe for their generous hospitality, and please RSVP so we know how much food and drink to buy.
See you there!
RSVPs are requested but not required.
