I live in North Texas a short 45 minutes from Wichita Falls home of the Hotter 'N Hell 100 endurance ride. Randonneuring events sound appealing especially with my sometimes partner in crime. She is my 22 year old unattached granddaughter. She loves riding her bike, hiking, running and adventure in general. My wife isn’t interested in joining me on much more than a ride around the neighborhood but is very supportive. I see there is a group of Randonneurs in the DFW area. You have piqued my interest! March 31st can’t get here soon enough!
Yes, DFW has a very active group. There is another one, though further away, based in Austin.
Both groups are good. A couple from Minnesota and Wisconsin make their way down to Texas over the winter. You’ll find that randonneurs can be welcoming, but at time eccentric, company.
