Raising the Bar: Part 3

Frances Caton (current vice-president)


A response to Eric:

I would never have gotten into the real Randonneur rides without the shorter ones. I amazed myself with my first 100 km ride - after much training. Then went on to ride a couple of 150s and then Harold's first Canada Day Populaire. I would never have attempted my first 200 hundred without the training from completing those short rides (and the confidence). And I know there are others, who have gotten into the longer rides by completing the short rides first.
