Looking ahead to the Pennsylvania Randonneurs Fleche 2020

Pennsylvania Randonneurs continues another of its long-standing traditions with the 2020 Flèche.  Once again the Trexlertown Velodrome is our target destination where finishers will be treated to breakfast, camaraderie, and hopefully dryer conditions than last year.  Maintaining the same finish location benefits those who liked their routes last year; just let me know you intend to use the same route again and you've met the requirements for route submission.

If you want to create a new route, you will need to identify the controls (a complete address, please), and provide a link to a map of you planned route.  Remember that your planned route and the shortest controlled route may not be the same.  It is extremely helpful if you create a brevet card in the RUSA Card-O-Matic application and copy the card to me (3981).

Take this time to brush up on the Rules for the Flèche.

The event page for the Flèche has been up for a while and a few riders have found it already.
Dates to keep in mind:

Mar 19:  Team Captain registration closes
Mar 26:  Route submission deadline
Apr 10:   Rider registration closes
16 April Noon: Earliest start time
18 April 8-9 AM: Preferred start time
18 April 10 AM: Latest start
19 April 10 AM: Latest finish
19 April 8-11 AM: Brunch Banquet and (hopefully) laps on the track

The Captain's deadline is coming up soon.  Don't delay.
