Little did I know that on completing the Winter Solstice Audax last Sunday that I would qualify for a Randonneur Round the Year award, but so it seems I do – thanks to Chris and Amy for pointing that out. To qualify, you need to ride a Randonneur event in each of 12 consecutive months. That also means I’ve ticked another ambition off – an imperial century each month of the year.
Anyway, I did my first qualifying ride, a 200k, in January. I did a 200k in February and two more in March. In April I did the epic 400k with Anthony. Another 200k in May and June, plus a 300k. In July I did four 200k’s and a 300k in August. Three more 200k’s in September, and one each of October, November and December completed the set. Job done!
