Inspired by "Eau de Hell" Week on Vancouver Island, BC Randonneurs is hosting an event in August 2010 that we are calling "Super Week". Like "Eau de Hell" Week, this event includes 200km, 300km, 400km, and 600km brevets... but since this will be held late in the season when participants fitness levels have improved, we are also including a 1000km brevet to finish the week.

Super Week Organizer: Alex Pope

2010 Edition: August 28th to September 7th

The Hot Gold 200km brevet explores some history of the Fraser River transportation over the past century.

The Agassiz-Rosedale Ferry was the only means of transportation across the Fraser River at Agassiz from 1901 to 1956 when it was replaced by the Agassiz-Rosedale Bridge. In 1957, the ferry that was being used at that time, called the Agassiz, was refitted, renamed the T’lagunna and put into service as the first ferry at Albion. This ferry was subsequently replaced by a newer ferry called the Klatawa in 1978, and a second ferry, the Kulleet, was added in 1985. The ferry service at Albion was discontinued in 2009, replaced by the Golden Ears Bridge. We use both of these bridges to cross the Fraser River during this brevet.

Inspired by “Eau de Hell” Week on Vancouver Island, BC Randonneurs is hosting an event in August 2010 that we are calling “Super Week”. Like “Eau de Hell” Week, this event includes 200km, 300km, 400km, and 600km brevets… but since this will be held late in the season when participants fitness levels have improved, we are also including a 1000km brevet to finish the week.

There will be a special pin awarded for participation in Super Week. The criteria for receiving a Super Week pin is to successfully complete a minimum of 3 of the Super Week brevets with a distance totaling at least 1500km – so if, for example, you finish the 200km, 300km and 1000km brevets (both weekends) you will be awarded a Super Week pin.

There will also be special recognition for participants who successfully complete all 5 Super Week brevets… more information on this later.

In order to run this event smoothly, we are going to need a few volunteers. If you are riding any of the brevets, please encourage family members to show their support for you by volunteering. If you are not riding and wish to be involved, please check the list of Volunteer Assignments and then contact Alex Pope to reserve your spot on the volunteer list.
