Errandonnee 2015 Finishers and Honorable Mentions

The moment to announce the Errandonnee 2015 Finishers and Honorable Mentions is finally upon us! Thanks to all for their patience as I homologated entries.

This year’s edition of the challenge boasts 62 Finishers and 4 Honorable Mentions, including one Honorable Mention from Boston. Yes, that Boston, the one that received record-breaking snow this year.

Overall, errandeurs completed 804 errands and rode a cumulative 4,668 miles over the 12 days of the Errandonnee. That averages out to around 68 miles and just over 12 errands per person. Impressive? I say yes. Continue reading “Errandonnee 2015 Finishers and Honorable Mentions”

This challenge included the broadest geographic range of participants for any of the challenges I’ve hosted. People braved some stiff winter chill, wind, and even snow to complete the Errandonnee. Well done, everyone!

Utilitaire 12: Winners Announced! Finally!

The Utilitaire 12 was all about celebrating everyday errands and cycling trips. Utility cyclists have figured out ways to use our bikes, our legs, and our own steam to live various aspects of our lives, carry stuff from point A to point B, and get things done. I think that deserves some recognition.

People rode to haircuts, Goodwill, bike shops, the dentist, movies, museums, concerts, basketball games, the post office, FridayCoffeeClub, and libraries. They coffeeneured, lunched, dined, attended various volunteer and community meetings, and went grocery shopping. They even rode to bike rides (meta-utilitairing!). People took photos and diligently filled out paperwork.
