The Minnesota Randonneurs Spring Conference 2023
We have an exciting calendar on the docket for 2023, and will be kicking off the spring season with a special opportunity to gather and learn.
Join us on April 8 for our Minnesota Randonneurs Spring Conference, at the Southdale Library in Edina, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
The conference is open to all: current and past randonneurs, non-randonneurs and anyone with an interest in learning more about our fun, challenging and friendly sport. Bring friends! The event is free.
Sessions will cover:
- Why we are randonneurs - who are randonneurs, camaraderie and support
- The rides and programs MN Randonneurs are offering in 2023 – including shorter rides and gravel
- Randonneur history in Minnesota, the U.S. and worldwide - we go back a long way
- Randonneur safety
- How to plan to ride longer distances - preparation, training, working together
- Creating randonneur routes using RideWithGPS
Snacks and lunch will be provided.
We'll also plan on riding a 100k populaire after the session if the weather is favorable.*
* Must be a member of RUSA to join the ride, but signing up is easy and can be done from the library if needed.
We hope to see you there!
