2010 Plan

The plan for 2010 is to attempt a Randonneur Round the Year (200 for 12 consecutive months) and to do another Super Randonneur series (200, 300, 400, 600).

The RRtY was my original and only plan for 2010. The SR came only because, for some bizarre reason, I want to do the Bryan Chapman 600 again. For that you need to build up by cycling a 300 and a 400. I'm on the same trajectory as the Fabulous Faccombe Four, so it can't be helped :). Then the second half of the year is when the FNRttC comes into play. One of the rides I am most looking forward to, is the FNRttC to Dieppe. The plan is stop over in Le Treport and the next day, cycle to my parent's place in Rumbeke (Belgium).

I'll see you on at least 5 of your 1st 6 rides.
I'm down for the BC again and hope to get some sleep before it this time.
I'm also expressed interest for the Lowlands 1200 in July.
See you in Oxford in 3 weeks :-)

Hi Els .....looks like you've got another great year of cycling lined up ...and I'm very happy that the Faccomb4 will become the Faccomb5 for a few of the rides :-). Happy Christmas!

Hey Swarm Catcher,

What a great looking season you have ahead! I'd love to accomplish the RUSA R-12 award here in the US, but with family commitments and nasty winter weather, it has eluded me. Good luck to you! A friend I made and cycled with on LEL raved about the Bryan Chapman 600. I'm very jealous. Just finished the 3-hour Lake Placid training DVD. Loved it! I'll post my 2010 goals later this week.
