The New England Randonneurs board of directors consists of 6-10 persons who oversee the events and organization. These people play a critical role in determining policies, managing the budget, choosing merchandise & branding, and communicating with members. The entire board is elected yearly with nominations open until Oct 15th. (You can self-nominate.) Shortly after October 15th candidate statements will be posted online at nerandonneurs.org and voting will be open until November 15th.
To nominate yourself or someone else, please send their name to email@example.com. The NER clerk will follow up with a request for a statement.
If you ride with NER often, please consider joining the board. It helps everyone to have a wide array of voices and the board only meets 3-4 times per year via conference calls and/or in living rooms.
Thanks to everyone who came out to NER’s late season ride and parties in Vermont (Sept 24th) and Massachusetts (Oct 2nd). Both were a great success.
Rider Sara Huston posted some great photos from the Fall Classic 100k route.
Through March 2017 NER will have a monthly 100k on the first Sunday of the month. These informal rides in the Boston area are a great way to keep up the milage over the winter. More information can be found on the Sunday Series page.
Below is NER’s proposed 2017 schedule of ACP events for Boston. More events will be added to the calendar (including VT events) over the winter and these will be sanctioned only by RUSA.
100k – April 8th (Melinda Lyon)
200k – April 22nd (Steve Wimberg) New Route!

400k/200k – June 17th (Jon Doyle)
600k – July 15th (Jake Kassen)
Overnight – Late July/Aug (Sarah Bergstrom)
A full series is being planned including the return of the Vermont 600k. Dates TBD.
Ride Leaders Wanted: NER Rides are volunteer based. If you have a route which you’d like to add to the calendar and run in 2017, We’d like to help. Rides can start in almost anyplace in New England and take place any month of the year. For more information or to propose a ride, please contact RBA Jake Kassen.
