The Fleche NE is a team ride of 24 hours duration. The Fleche NE will use the traditional French format of a designated destination. A team may consist of three to five machines (a tandem counts as a single machine) and at least three machines must finish together for official credit. Each team must design its own route to the destination point and may not ride with any other cyclists. A minimum of 360 kilometers must be covered in 24 hours with no less than 25 kilometers to be ridden in the final two hours. No single rest stop may be longer than two hours. Pre-registration only. The deadline for registration is April 19. The entry fee is $35.00 per team.
