Our current mission statement is: Randonneurs USA (RUSA) is a national organization to promote randonneuring in the US and provide service to American randonneurs and randonneuses.

Here’s a proposed draft of the Board's revised mission statement: 
Randonneurs USA is a national non-profit promoting the randonneuring style of long-distance cycling, serving our membership and collaborating with affiliated organizations worldwide. We value self-sufficiency, respect and fairness, fostering camaraderie in an engaged, inclusive and informed membership.

We value your input and we thank you!
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the first brevet on 9-11-21
Save the Date!
September 11th, 2021 is the 100th anniversary of the first Audax Club Parisien allure libre 200km brevet in 1921! Twenty six riders earned a brevet on September 11, 1921 on a 200k loop that traversed Paris-Dreux-Chartres-Paris.

HI all,

If you haven't updated your contact info with RUSA lately, you may be missing out on a cool new offering!  RUSA is adding the "Between Controls" e-newsletter as another way to keep us connected between the magazine arrivals.

Hope you'll update your info on the members page, especially if you didn't get the inaugural one sent out last week :)
