|Sunrise at Cafe Metzler|
It was a near-perfect day for cycling said most of the 13 riders who clipped in for the 14th annual PA Randonneurs Fall Classic brevet & populaire. All 13 riders completed their chosen routes within time for two 100% completion rates. Congratulations to all! Preliminary results are posted on the website (200k and 150k) and will become final once submitted to RUSA.
We haven't ridden the Brandywine route in quite a few years though bits and pieces of the route were used in last year's RUSA 20th Anniversary Brevet. Everyone enjoyed the routes now that they had a chance to experience it in the daylight. Cool morning gave way to comfortable cycling temperatures with partly cloudy skies and very light winds to make it pleasant for all. The always popular Cafe Metzler awaited finishers with a burgers and beverages to cap off great rides. We even managed to get pictures of the field.
Next month we head a little further west to Miflinburg, PA where Steve Schoenfelder is organizing the inagural Rusty Rail brevet on November 2. Word has it that the Rusty Rail Brewery is home to the largest brewpub in Pennsylvania. You wont want to miss it. Registration is open on the website through Halloween. We plan to return to Easton in December. Stay tuned for details.
