A brevet is a long distance recreational ride that is timed. Brevets are offered in progressively longer distances in order to prepare you for the challenges of the longest events such as the Paris Brest Paris Randonneur (PBP). A brevet tests your endurance and provides a unique opportunity for self discovery.
Depending on the distance, our events will travel northward though Marin, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. The routes will vary from flat to hilly and will include segments of short frequent hills (rollers) as well as include several long hill climbs. Events in the past included the challenges of very strong head winds (gusts to 40 mph), rain, dense ground fog. You can read past events participants’ reports by clicking on the linked names on the Brevet Results pages.
San Francisco Randonneurs’ brevets are minimally supported events on unmarked roads to keep costs low.
These events are not for beginners. The courses are hilly and can be windy. There will be night time riding in the longer events. You should have completed several century or double century cycling events in the six months before starting a brevet.
