Errandonnee is a challenge where you have 12 days to complete 12 errands by bicycle or on foot. This post completes my series of entries for the 2021 challenge.
I finished my Errandonnee challenge last week. It was a lot of fun, but a surprising amount of work. I bike commute a lot every week, but I usually follow a few basic routes for regular necessities. The Errandonnee rules require that you try a variety of “errands” and encourage creativity. Some of my rides ended up being much further and more complicated than I expected. If you haven’t started yours yet, or if you plan to participate in upcoming years, then my advice is to make a plan with a schedule and stick to it.
- Date range
- May 9 through May 20
- Total errands
- Total mileage
- 67 miles
The mileage is a conservative estimation since I didn’t always run my GPS. I stopped worrying about it once it was clear I’d be well over the minimum of 30 miles anyway.
