MG, of Chasing Mailboxes fame, and also a randonneur, created the Utilitaire 12, a winter cycling challenge. Like any good randonneuring event, there were many rules, paperwork and documentation requirements. Not unlike working on proficiency badges or challenges (if you remember those, you may be a Girl Scout from my era). After a bit of thought, I realized this one was totally doable. One rule was that a qualifying activity could not occur DURING a brevet or permanent.
It could occur BEFORE or AFTER, like riding to the start and getting some coffee. And with that, I was off.
My life is amazingly well organized at this time. Where I live and where I currently work are about 3 miles apart. I bike commute most days. And between work and home are places to eat, community meetings, a variety of stores, bike shops, and where I get my haircut! Piece of cake. It actually was, one night, but I didn't count that stop, as I already had my two qualifiers for the week.
Tonight, at the Bicycle Transportation Alliance MSTIP focus group (coincidentally at a pub along one route home), I completed it.
