Annual SERA Awards

All recipients of SERA Awards and Recognitions must be a member of SERA and only the ride results achieved as an active SERA member apply. Only results from SERA sanctioned and SERA co-sanctioned rides apply. Ride results from years prior to the 2009 ride year do not apply. For SERA Awards purposes, a ride year is December 1 - November 30. For any award which requires nomination, nominations are due to the Secretary of SERA (for open and limited distance awards) or Secretary of the East Coast Ride and Tie (for Ride and Tie awards) no later than December 15 and may be made by email or by snail mail.
