Or at least must be on the way: MG has announced the dates for this year’s Errandonnee. Mark your calendar: March 5, 2015 to March 16, 2015.
For the uninitiated, the Errandonnee is an eccentric event designed to get people out and about on bicycles, doing ordinary things that perhaps might otherwise be done using a planet-destroying motor vehicle.
There are rules, which are sometimes peculiar, and always entertaining. There are records, which participants must file. There is reporting, at the end, with maps, and a spreadsheet. And, for finishers, there has traditionally been a small premium in the form of a commemorative patch, which some of us covet. (That’s 2014’s, above.)
Details have been promised, once this year’s rules have been finalized, and will appear on MG’s blog, Chasing Mailboxes. Gentlemen, gentlewomen and gentlepersons of all sorts, prepare to shift your pedals!
