Description
Hill Country Randonneurs is an organization to promote randonneuring throughout central Texas. Come join us for some great scenery, enjoyable company, and pleasurable rides.

In 2007, 200k and 300k brevets were added. These brevets are similar to other organized bike ride except the support is light to non-existent. At the start you will be given a route sheet and a brevet card. Along the route, stores will be marked as controls. Get a receipt from the store with time and date marked on it. This will serve as proof you were there. Each of these brevets have time limits, but these limits are generous, so you do not need to be in a hurry. Remember, this is all about finishing.

As usual, everyone is welcome to ride. All rides have same-day sign ups. Populaires are free (rides < 200k) and so is your first ride with HCR, so you have no excuses not to give it a go. Texas hill country is waiting for you! As always, you do not need to be a RUSA member or HCR member to ride any of the rides posted below. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at wgdunlap@aol.com. To join the HCR mailing list/group go to http://groups.google.com/group/hill-country-randonneurs
