Stay Competitive! Ignore the signs of weakness

It has been brought to our attention that disturbing stickers with a whimsical message have been posted throughout the personal racetracks of our domain! Nefarious individuals intent on destroying our efforts to yet again top our personal best time for our commutes and recreational rides are afoot!

ignore this message from the competition!

This is a direct attack derived from our own checklist for the competitive recreational rider in all of us!

Randonneur Infirmities and Diseases installment #2: Obsession with the BM*

Randonneurs in spirited competition attempting to meet their BM goals, we salute you!

Randonneurs in spirited competition attempting to meet their BM goals, we salute you!

Randonneurs are prone to and are expected to obsess and plan for their BM. The approach certainly varies with diet and constitution, and from region to region here in the US with a midwestern BM filled with corn and beans and those in the west rather mountainous, but every randonneur and randonneure eventually dabbles with a great big BM despite the pain and suffering that surely accompanies such endevours, and we the editors of Competitve Randonneuring and Commuting salute all riders in pursuit of their BM goals this day and this season.

Cheers!
