Tandem R-12 Award

While several of us have earned our first R-12 award, and may be working on our second, we have a new "first" for the PA R-12 series, a Tandem R-12. Completing December's snowy PA-200K, Barb and Ron Anderson (Team Purple Burley) earned their Tandem R12 Awards - all qualifying rides were together on their tandem!

Congratulations Barb and Ron!

Ron and Barb began randonneuring in 2007, completing several 200Ks, a 400K and a 600K, all on their tandem, the Purple Burley. They were Tandem SRs in 2008 and again in 2009, and although they've had some challenging 400 and 600K's, they admitted that they are most proud of their Tandem R-12 medals. Barb and Ron are also charter members of the DSSTRS, the Double Super Secret Tandem Rando Society. Although it it a secret, feel free to contact them for membership requirements.

With the completion of a permanent in January, Barb and Ron are on their way towards their second Tandem R-12.


  1. Ron, Barbara,

    Congratulations on a well-deserved, and hard-earned R-12! ... and that's a very nice frame you made for it.

    Best Regards,
