Brevet procedures


    • Rides are advance registration only.
    • Upon registering, you will receive an email that will have two things in it:
      • A link to PayPal for you to pay. Note that a PayPal account is not required. Please add a note in the comment field which ride you are paying for.
      • A link to complete a waiver electronically.
      • Note that your registration is not complete until I have received your waiver and payment. If I don’t have them both on the morning of the ride you will not get credit for the ride!

After completing your registration, download the ridewithgps route and optionally print a cue sheet from ridewithgps and brevet card. Note that a brevet card is optional, see below for more details.

During the ride

As is always the case with randonneuring, rides are unsupported. Whether or not you choose to go self contained or avail yourself of store/restaurant stops along the way is up to you.

Proof of passage

There are two options available for proof of passage:

    1. Electronic Proof of Passage (EPP) using a GPS
      • Start your GPS at the start of the ride and stop it when you complete the ride. Note that for multi-day rides (600K & 1000K) you will have a separate track for each day.
        • It is also HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you take a timestamped photo of yourself at the start, intermediate controls and finish. These can be used in the event you have problems with your GPS.
      • Upload your ride to either Strava or ridewithgps. Free accounts are available if you don’t already have one.
        • If you’ve taken photos as recommended you can upload those photos to your Strava/ridewithgps file.
      • Within 24 hours of the ride end, you’ll receive an email from me asking you to submit a link to your Strava/ridewithgps track.
      • Click on the link in the email and fill out the requested information.
    2. Brevet card
      • If you have elected to download and print a brevet card you must get a clerk to initial it at all manned checkpoints.
      • If there are unmanned intermediate checkpoints on your route your cue sheet will instruct you to take a photo of a landmark at that checkpoint.
      • When you finish the ride, sign your brevet card, scan it and send it to me ( along with any required photos.

As always, if you are unable or choose not to complete the ride please call or send a message (email or text) that you’re DNF.
