I recently posted this in a forum thread about randonneuring:
"I will help anyone start participating in randonneuring, but there is so much potential for suffering that I would never try to recruit anyone into randonneuring. I have ridden myself to the verge of tears more than once, and probably will again. "Epic is not a synonym for stupid""

Funny thing is, I wasn't thinking of Endless Mountains.  I got a little anxious about time during EM, but never really felt miserable.  I have more to say about this and what I think beginning randonneurs need to know.  That's a post for another time. 


  1. if you intend to keep this blog active and the subject(s) will include randonneuring, you might contact "sag" about getting a link on "RUSA Blogs" -- I was going to include a link to RUSA Blogs, but I see that I'm short on time right now and Tom's(?) Rothrock Cyrcle of Hell blog has a link -- I'm confident you know how to get to that blog.


  2. I'm still semi-commercial, so I don't want to violate their rule against commercial blogs.

  3. Semi-commercial in the sense that you might build frames for pay? I thought you were adverse to that given a lack of insurance?
