Flexiperms - The Sequel
This was just an e mail message that permanets co-coordinator Bob Koen sent after reading Harold's permiflex thoughts. It reads a bit like a mission statement for the perminents. Good enough to share... [Eric F]
All of what you said makes good sense Harold. Such good sense that in fact, BC Randonneurs permanents have evolved to work pretty much the way you describe the early brevets as having worked.
- You can ride a permanent on any day you want except for the first day of a scheduled brevet in your region.
So the permanents are about as flexible as we can figure out how to make them. The only real rules are that you need to ride at least 200 km, on a preplanned route with preplanned controls, and get to those controls within the standard opening and closing times. If you succeed then you get one attaboy (or attagirl), in writing on the BC Randos web site, and nothing else. What could be simpler?
