Salt Lake Randonneurs (SLR) Event Registration
Membership in Randonneurs USA (RUSA) is not required to ride in one of our brevets or populaires, but you are encouraged to join. Locally, the Salt Lake Randonneurs has no official membership fee or club to join, as we are, for insurance purposes, a region of RUSA, the national organization.
New For 2019: ride a full series this season in our region and get a free SLR jersey! A series is composed of 200km, 300km, 400km and 600km brevet. (This offer is for new randonneurs only that have never finished a series. Also, if you wish, you can order a jersey now and after you finish the series, get a refund.)
48-hour advance registration is appreciated, so we have time to prepare the personalized brevet cards and cue sheets. If you wish register “at the door,” please bring a check or exact change and arrive early as you will need to fill out the long form wavier. Events will be held rain or shine, except on some early-season events, which may be delayed due to cold and wet forecasted weather which may bring on hypothermia.
There are NO refunds, except on the 1000K brevet, which is refundable up to three weeks prior, minus 50% of your fee.
RUSA Membership Note If you plan on doing many RUSA brevets in the future, and want to have a permanent lifetime record in their online database, you may want to quickly get a membership before you finish your first brevet. Once we submit the results of an event, we cannot retroactively tag it with your new membership number.
Rules, route details and snail-mail waiver/registration forms are at the Salt Lake Randonneurs (SLR) site.
The reason there is a fee, even on the unsupported rides, is to pay for:
- Insurance &/or postage/handling fees of brevet cards.
- Reimbursement for mileage driving doing route research.
- Hosting & tech maintenance fees for our website.
- Note that these brevets are “self service” because I usually end up riding with the group.
