I'm wondering if any Bellas are cyclotouristes rather than racers (or in addition to, though I can't imagine anyone having the time and energy to do both in equal measure).

I'm happy to read about all the racing but my heart is really in the cyclotouring scene. I'd love to network with others who are doing long-distance riding.

Happy riding!

Hi Beth,
I'm a distance person on the East Coast! I'll race now and again when my chums talk me into it, but most of the time I'm either riding in tours or brevets. I really enjoy the social scene in the distance community.

I was out in Portland a couple years back and did a 300km with Susan's crew - what a blast! If you're out this way (Central NY) stop in for a ride!

Nice to know. Yeah, Susan (of Oregon Randonneurs) is a bit of a super-star in the RUSA (RandoUSA) crowd. Through her efforts the rando scene in our area has really taken off, and she's great about reaching out especially to new women riders. I was made to feel especially welcome when my buddy Mike brought me to my first populaire last spring.

I will keep your invite in mind. In 2009 my parter and I are hoping to head east for a law-school graduation and will try to hit several stops along the east cost. Cheeres --Beth

Hi Beth!

I just joined VB and also considering a move to Hood River. (Im here now) Im always looking for good

long rides. My boyfriend wants me to start racing with him, so I

have an element of training when I ride.

If you ever venture out in this rainy weather.

let me know and I can head your way!

Been awhile since checking the Bella Boards.
If you're looking for rando rides in the greater Portland area, check out:

We're approaching the end of our season, but check the tentative 2009 schedule for rides you might be able to work into your schedule.

Happy riding --Beth

Hey Beth:

I'm kind of trying a bit of both racing and randonneuring this year. I'm doing three 200 KM rides this spring, and if I don't die, I might try a 300 or even 400 (but that might be pushing it a bit....) If you'd like any info on rides in Spain, let me know - I can send you the 2009 calendar...
