PA SR Series Begins - Lackawanna 200k

***UPDATE 1***
Course checkout rides were completed over the weekend.  The cue sheet has been updated and posted on the website.
You'll want to make sure you have the 2018 edition or you may find yourself backtracking quite a bit due to bridge construction.

***Original Post***
With the worst (hopefully) of winter behind us, it is time to look toward the ACP-sanctioned portion of our 2018 schedule and the PA Randonneurs SR series.  Details of the first event, the Lackawana 200k have been posted on the website.  Registration is open.

At long last we are also moving forward with a non-wool option for the classic PA Randonneurs jerseys.  We will be using Ascend Sportswear to produce the jerseys.  Three options for materials are planned: Elevate, Volare, and Apex.  These may change slightly as I finalize the details with Ascend.  Sizing and material samples will be available at the March brevet for interested people to see first-hand.  Ordering is handled by Ascend.  You will have the option of having your jersey mailed directly to you from Ascend or you can save the postage and pick it up at one of our later events.  Ascend will create a "store" for us on it's website where you can order and pay for your jersey(s).  That store will be opened a few days prior to the brevet and remain open for approximately three weeks.  The jerseys will be produced at that time.  Delivery is expected 5-6 weeks after the store closes.  My morning ride group commissioned custom kit with Ascend last fall.  I ordered an Elevate jersey and am very satisfied with the quality and comfort.  There is a minimum order quantity for this project.  Hopefully you all saved a few cycling budget dollars for a new warm weather jersey.  The best aspect is that we can easily arrange for additional runs should the demand exist, even if that is next year.
