This is the registration for the Dart. However, to finish your registration you need to complete the following steps:

The Dart populaire has rules that are somewhat different, and perhaps even more arcane, than those for a standard brevet. Rules for the Dart populaire are here. Some of them are summarized as follows:

  • Each team must consist of three to five bicycles. (Note that a tandem counts as a single bicycle, so teams will sometimes contain more than five riders.)

  • The traditional Dart route starts at some distant location and then heads for the target, but a loop route is also allowed, as long as the start location is far enough from the finish to be considered as a different postal jurisdiction. Your route cannot start in the 17325 zip code.

  • As in a standard brevet, the routes must contain control locations chosen so that the shortest bicycle-legal route through the controls is equal to at least the minimum distance. However, the Dart has an additional requirement that one of the controls must occur exactly 2 hours before the scheduled finish and be at least 25 km from the finish. That control would be 6 hours after the start of the Dart populaire.

Each team must have a captain who is responsible for designing the route and submitting it for approval. Captains should carefully read the rules first. The schedule will be:

October 5: Applications from captains due to the organizer (Bill Beck) including 1) 2022 Dart team captain regform, 2) 2022 Dart route application. These forms can be found in the 2023 dart folder found here. The route information can be submitted electronically to william.a.beck@gmail.com in PDF, MS Word, or MS

Excel format. Route files from RWGPS will also be appreciated, but not required.

October 15: Final rosters with 2022 Tracking Form due to Bill Beck. Deadline for final route approval.

October 15: Control cards submitted to Bill Beck for approval. (He can help generate these, if desired.)

October 28: Dart

Team captains are responsible for making sure that their team members have registered.

Please contact Bill Beck (william.a.beck@gmail.com) with any questions. We also have many experienced fleche and dart captains in the club who would be excellent sources of advice. If you are thinking of forming a team or looking for a team to join, the dcrand listserve is one good way to connect with other riders.
