RUSA Rouleur Award Program 2022

RUSA announced the Rouleur Award Program late last year, aimed at riders who love to get out and ride randonneur style but are limited by family, work or other life stuff and have a hard time training for and fitting in the longer brevets. With the Rouleur program, you can earn a rando recognition award after completing one of each of the following five ride distances over a season. 
            100-124k         Populaire
            125-149k         Populaire
            150-199k         Populaire
            200-220k         Brevet
            120k                Dart Team Ride          
Riders can earn one Rouleur award per season. All rides ridden for Rouleur credit are also eligible for all other RUSA mileage awards. Permanents do not count for Rouleur recognition.
Minnesota Randonneurs are expanding our route library and offering a wide variety of rides to help you attain a Rouleur Award. 
Here’s a quick rundown of the rides that could be used for Rouleur credit. Check the MnRando website schedule for details and to register. More rides may be added later in the year to help riders reach their Rouleur goal.
