Great report.

A "Fleche" is supposed to be an arrow (hence a straight line) where several groups start some crazy distance away from a central point and meet for breakfast Easter morning to break their Lentan fast. (I would have eaten a lot more than a Bagel sandwich but it seems like you ate plenty on the ride).

I've always thought the Brevet rules are way too confining. I don't mind riding them but all those rules and controls and having to stop on a Fleche (but not stop too long) are not my cup of tea.

Still, there is something really cool about the team concept of a Fleche.

Thanks for posting.
