Social Gathering Before/After

Note: Advance registration is required for this event.  All members of the dart team must register individually.  The team captain also needs to submit your team's route for approval to Kerin at least one week in advance of the event.

A Dart Populaire is a team event in which a team of 3-5 bicycles rides together for 8 hours, covering at least 120 km on a route of their own design.  Even though all the teams begin in different locations and ride unique routes, they all finish in the same spot at about the same time.  This year we will finish at the Jones' Home in Moorpark where we can enjoy food and drink together on their lovely patio.  Hopefully, we will be celebrating the successful completion of the Rouleur Award for many riders.   Team events are a lot of fun, and the Dart Populaire has the advantage of only being 8 hours long.  So find some rando friends and get a team together.

The target finish time is 16:00, which means the teams will begin their journeys at 08:00 on Saturday morning.

You can read more about the Part populaire here.  I know that all the rules can be confusing, so please feel free to contact Kerin about any questions or help with route design.  Also if you are looking to form a team, or looking to join a team, I would be happy to facilitate.  My goal is to have as many people as possible enjoy this event.

The Dart Populaire is part of our Rouleur Series.  To earn the Rouleur Award you need to do populaires with lengths of 100k, 125k, and 150k; plus a 200k brevet and a Dart populaire (we'll have a Dart in November).  If you do all these rides in the same year you can earn this spiffy patch from RUSA:
