HI all, not too late to join LSR for a brevet-fest in Greenville this weekend :)   Updated RSVPs below and a dog reminder from Vikram from just a year ago.  Notes have been added to the attached cue sheets and GPS!!

FYI, revised cue sheets attached reflecting additional road notes shared from Peter's 600k preride.  I will have cue sheets & waivers available tonight if needed, but won't be at the 200k start tomorrow.  Also learning my slowwwww internet at home wasn't saving corrections to the 200k GPS, but it's saved now and is not 200 miles :)

400k & 600k -  mile 113.4 outbound and mile 136 inbound on the 600k Day1.   Vikram shared he was bitten on the return (mile 136) and notes that this is on an uphill, which made him slower and more vulnerable.  Photos below.
  • Mile 91.3 - Caddo Store (C&H One Stop Valero). No answer to old phone number and google now showing only corporate number.  Added Dairy Queen & Dollar General hours to attached cue sheets.
  • 600k only - Winnsboro Exxon has disconnected number - Please use any store and provide proof of passage

All Routes 
  • TXDOT construction from Bonham>Gober (~9miles)  TXDOT only notes one-lane construction with no extra info about potential gravel or the hardpack noted by Stephen.  All attached cue sheets include this info.  (200k mile 92.7, 300k, mile 143.6, 400/600k  mile 210.8)
  • Mile 60 Silver Dollar Grocery verified - added to all cue sheets below.
  • Called all stores to verify hours, etc.  Kwik Checks all said actual store still branded as Kwik Check.

Please note:

Randonneuring inherently involves various hazards, and riders assume all risks associated with the activity.  Hazards include, but are not limited to, motor vehicles; other cyclists; loose dogs, livestock or wild animals; road flaws including cracks, potholes, ridges, gratings, rumble strips, sand or gravel; lightning, heat, cold, ice, or other hazardous weather; mechanical failures; fatigue; medical conditions; assault.  All routes are on public roads or paths, and neither the route nor any flaws in the road surface are marked.  All routes are unsupported.  Riders will be required to sign and submit the attached waiver prior to riding.  Please read it, as you are signing away some rights and are responsible for knowing what you sign.

Please ask any questions and I will post RSVPs and any updates to this email string.  And thanks in advance if you see anything amiss...lemme know :)  Ciao for now and holler back with questions!
