Team Event Weekend! Ride a RUSA Dart Populaire (minimum 120K, such a civilized distance) with all routes converging at Vinny's house (address below). The finish will feature food, drinks, and of course there will be a million stories.


Rules for Dart Populaires may be found here: Dart Populaire Rules

All Dart Populaire teams will start at 9:00 AM Saturday, April 6th and complete the ride within 8 hours (5:00 PM).

Team Captains

  • Organize a team of three to five bikes (typically three to five riders, but can be more if tandems are included).
  • Choose a catchy team name. This is often the most contentious step.
  • Design a route. Tradtionally a point-to-point route is preferred. Loops are allowed, but out-and-backs are not.
  • Email the organizer Rose Cox with the team name, roster, and RWGPS route link. This information MUST be submitted no later than Thursday, March 28th.
No team entries will be accepted after Thursday, March 28th. Yes, we always say this, but we mean it this time. No exceptions.

Team Riders (Including Captains)

  • Register via the usual process on this page, sign the wavier, pay the ride fee.
