    This 200k brevet will be run as an audax-style brevet, and it will be sanctioned by UAF ( l’Union des Audax Français).  This is PCH Randos' first experiment with an audax brevet- it should be a lot of fun to try this out. 

    Audax brevets are group rides- all riders start together, ride together, and finish together. Riders are never alone, the effort is constant, and controls are for rest rather than validating passage along the route. In addition to riding together, riders on audax brevets stop at controls together and have a sit-down meal together at lunch.  The pace is designed to be moderate- it is perfectly possible for the majority of riders to comfortably stay with the group.  You do not have to be a fast rider!

    Audax is characterized by a common riding pace of 22.5kph (14mph) with stops of fixed duration (~15min. per 40-60km; 45-90 min. for sit-down meals).  Riding willfully outside the peloton is forbidden and the peloton is led by organizer-appointed “route captains.” Route captains set the pace, navigate, and maintain the good order of the ride.  So if you like the idea of riding with your fellow randos for the whole ride, audax style is for you.  But if you are the type of rider who likes to take off from the front and go your own pace, audax is probably not a good fit for you. Here is more info about the Audax style on the RUSA website.

    The course begins in Pasadena and utilizes the SART, the SGRT and the Rio Hondo Trail.  It also does the loop around the Newport Back Bay.  It is relatively flat, with only a few climbs.

    The Lazy Acres 100K Populaire is a scenic out and back coastal route from the west end of Ventura to Lazy Acres Market in Santa Barbara. The first 13 and last 13 miles of the route is on Old PCH on the shoreline. In Carpinteria, there is a rolly jaunt along the foothills then on to Summerland, Montecito and up Cabrillo Blvd in Santa Barbara. If you missed anything on the way up, you can see most of it again on the return. The course, barring coastal fog, has views of the Channel Islands off the coast of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The coast is usually very mild, with lows in the 50’s, and highs in the 70’s.

    This populaire is the first ride in our Summer Rouleur Series.  To earn the Rouleur Award you need to do populaires with lengths of 100k, 125k, and 150k; plus a 200k brevet and a Dart populaire (we'll have a Dart in November).  If you do all these rides in the same year you can earn this spiffy patch from RUSA:

    The Channel Islands 200K has 2 main portions. The first part is a big loop around the Oxnard Plain.  It is worth stopping at the control at Somis Market where a great Mexican breakfast can be had.  On the return to Ventura you will pass within a block of the start, so you can visit your car to drop off or pick up clothing if you choose.

    The second half of the ride is an out and back along the coast to Santa Barbara Harbor. The only obstacle may be the headwind on the way to Santa Barbara. The same headwind is a welcome tailwind on the way back to Ventura.  The course, barring coastal fog, has views of the Channel Islands off the coast of Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. The coast is usually very mild, with lows in the 50’s, and highs in the 70’s.

    Note: Advance registration is required for this event.  All members of the dart team must register individually.  The team captain also needs to submit your team's route for approval to Kerin at least one week in advance of the event.

    A Dart Populaire is a team event in which a team of 3-5 bicycles rides together for 8 hours, covering at least 120 km on a route of their own design.  Even though all the teams begin in different locations and ride unique routes, they all finish in the same spot at about the same time.  This year we will finish at the Jones' Home in Moorpark where we can enjoy food and drink together on their lovely patio.  Hopefully, we will be celebrating the successful completion of the Rouleur Award for many riders.   Team events are a lot of fun, and the Dart Populaire has the advantage of only being 8 hours long.  So find some rando friends and get a team together!

    The target finish time is 16:00, which means the teams will begin their journeys at 08:00 on Saturday morning.

    You can read more about the Dart populaire here.  I know that all the rules can be confusing, so please feel free to contact Kerin about any questions or help with route design.  Also if you are looking to form a team, or looking to join a team, I would be happy to facilitate.  My goal is to have as many people as possible enjoy this event.

    The Dart Populaire is part of our Rouleur Series.  To earn the Rouleur Award you need to do populaires with lengths of 100k, 125k, and 150k; plus a 200k brevet and a Dart populaire (we'll have a Dart in November).  If you do all these rides in the same year you can earn this spiffy patch from RUSA:
