The online registration includes signing a responsibility waiver (using the same SmartWaiver app used for RUSA Permanents). After registering, you'll receive a confirmation email containing a link to the SIR waiver.
Complete and submit the waiver to finalize your registration.
With regard to the waiver, we're bound by RUSA insurance rules, which stipulate that riders confirm the email address entered on the waiver. Here's an overview of the process:
YOU MUST SUBMIT A COMPLETED WAIVER IN ORDER TO START THE RIDE
Go to https://www.smartwaiver.com/v/rusawasir, complete the waiver, including your email address. This link is also in your event registration email. To minimize confusion, please also use these for the appropriate fields in the waiver:
- Designated Event: Rouleur 100-124
- Designated Event Date: January 15, 2022
Once submitted, you will receive an email containing a link to verify the email address. Click on the link in the email. This will confirm the waiver.
Once you've confirmed the waiver, you'll receive another email with a link to the completed waiver, and your registration will be finalized.
Due to continuing COVID-19 concerns, this will be a no-contact event with all online registration and no manned food controls. We encourage you to bring along your own food and drink, but the route does pass through numerous towns where there are opportunities to refuel. We will report separately on specific COVID-19 protocols, which will apply not only to this event but also to future rides for an indefinite time period.

RUSA Brevet #1438 Southern Exposure, an update of the Southern Exposure brevet route from 2013.
Southern Exposure features low elevation (below 300 meters/1000 feet), paved trails 27.8 km/17.3 miles), compact cinder/gravel trails (7.8 km/4.8 miles), and rural roads against a scenic backdrop of the Cascade foothills.
From Renton, it's a flat start heading down the Interurban Trail for about 15 km. Upon reaching the Green River, a gentle river grade incline with a few rollers continues for about 25 km. At about 40 km into the ride, the first climb of about 200m takes you up SE Green Valley Road into Black Diamond. Before reaching Black Diamond, there's an optional detour left noted in the cues on Jones Lake Road to Black Diamond Bakery & Deli. If Gas Station convenience is your thing, there's one of those in Black Diamond on-route for you too. From Black Diamond, there's another good climb up Lawson Street. A descent down SE Green River Gorge Road crosses a single-lane bridge high above the Green River. Another climb out of the gorge leads to Cumberland. From Cumberland you'll pass by Kanaskat-Palmer State Park on the left. The peak of the ride will be at Kangley, about 290m in elevation. From here it is downhill to Ravensdale. One more 30m climb up Landsburg Road SE before heading west on Cedar River Trail (gravel). Near Maple Valley, the trail becomes paved. A gentle river grade descent on the trail follows back to the finish in Renton.

We have a large number of riders registered for this ride. Please do not park close to the front of Fred Meyer taking up spaces that are more convenient for customers. There are over 60 spaces on the far north end of the parking lot available for customers. There are also two nearby Park & Ride lots (351 Hardie Ave SW, Renton, WA 98057 and 205 S 7th St, Renton, WA 98057). As a general recommendation, avoid storing things of value in your car, certainly not visible.
In the spirit of self-supported randonnepuring and keeping ride fees to a minimum, food and drinks will not be provided by the club for the Winter Rouleur Series. Bring your own beverages, grab a cup of coffee at the Starbucks, buy the sports drink you forgot to pack at the Fred Meyer. Food & services are noted on the route as well.
