A Chili Invitation
(to the Chili 200 km - Victoria - March 4, 2012)
from Mike Croy

Go to: Chill 200 Route with randoPony pre-reg link.

Greeting’s rando folk:

Hope everyone is well! Brynne, Steven and I would like to invite you to the upcoming 200 km brevet we are hosting. Here is your chance to earn your 200 km pin early in the season while enjoying the scenery of the peninsula has to offer.

The ride will begin and finish at our house which is located at 3131 Millgrove street (near the Tillicum mall). The route will be a reversed variant of Ken Bonner's peninsula 200 km permanent route. I have sent a preliminary version of the route to Eric which he has put on the web site. I plan to pre-ride the route to check for absolute accuracy on Feb 26th. The finalized copy will be available on the day of the ride.

Registration will begin at 6 am and the ride will depart at 7 am. We will also have coffee on for riders and some breakfast-like items as well at the time of registration. After the ride we will also be serving chili and homemade corn bread, perhaps also beers.

Rando pony is now accepting registrations, if you are thinking about riding we would really appreciate it if you could put your name down to give us an idea of how many people to expect.

We could also use an extra person or two on the day of the event running a control or helping with chili prep. Please enquire if you’re interested. Volunteer pre-ride: Sunday the 26th.

Thanks and hope to see you on the ride!


Mike, Brynne and Steven Croy
