Randonneuring is a non-competitive, self-supported, long-distance cycling activity typically enjoyed by experienced and serious cyclists. The objective is to cultivate the qualities of endurance and self-sufficiency for long distance riding. 

First thing first. You must be an AIR member to take part in any brevet in India.

A rider who completes any one ACP approved 200K / 300K / 400K / 600K / 1000K of brevet ride is called a Randonneur. It is a lifetime title earned by the rider.

Any rider who completes ACP approved 200K, 300K, 400K & 600K of brevet rides in the same brevet season is called a Super Randonneur.

It may be that organizing club hasn’t updated the event fee payment details, please contact respective organizing club rep for details.

Click on the event link available @ AIR Events page. You can find Ride Responsible's contact ID there.

A brevet or randonneuring event must be undertaken within the following set time limits for the following distances:

200 km - 13.5 hours             600 km - 40 hours

300 km - 20 hours                 1000 km - 75 hours

400 km - 27 hours                 1200 km - 90 hours

Many riders have achieved the Randonneur and Super Randonneur titles in their first year of cycling. Most randonneurs are successful once they accomplish at least one century or 100km ride before their first BRM.

Results & Medals

A BRM is not a race or a competition so there are no podium positions for fastest finishers. Riders completing successful events receive awards from Audax Club Parisien (ACP), France:

  • Brevet Medal - for completing any single brevet of 200, 300, 400, 600 or 1000 km.
  • Super Randonneur Medal - for completing a series of 200, 300, 400 and 600 km brevets within the same season.
  • A rider who has successfully completed a 200 km brevet is called a Randonneur. This is a lifelong title.

No. If you want a medal then it has to be paid in addition to the event fee after you successfully complete the brevet. Check the "Register" link on the event page for more details or contact the ride organiser.

Once rider finishes all the 4 super series rides (200K, 300K, 400K & 600K), he/she becomes eligible to apply for SR medal. SR medal application process is now online only available as a link on the membership dashboard of eligible riders.

No – it’s optional (that’s why it’s not included in Event Fee).

Yes – Please refer the Register link of the event to know “Medal Fee”. For more details contact respective organizing club rep.

ACP France allocates each brevet ride finisher a unique#, this unique# is known as Homologation# (comes as small sticker). The sticker is applied on the rider's brevet card.

Yes! Irrespective of whether rider opts for medal or not, a Homologation# is allotted to every brevet finisher.

It may be that organizing club hasn't updated the medal fee payment details, please contact respective organizing club rep for details.

As soon as a brevet event result is submitted by organizing club, result goes thru homologation process. Once homologated by France (ACP) all the finishers of the ride receive an email with their timing & homologation details. Additionally:
If you are an annual member please login to audax india site & go to dashboard link (after clicking on your name on TOP RIGHT) to get all the ride details.
If you are one time rider of the event and / or unable to locate the result email please contact respective organizing club rep for details.

Finish Time is visible to riders as soon as organizing club updates time but homologation# is only allotted by ACP after club submits results to AIR. Getting your homologation# may take upto 2-3 weeks of time after the ride. Have patience.

It takes up to 2 weeks to get the official finish time uploaded in the system. If it's more than 2 weeks please contact respective organizing club rep for details. If club rep is unable to resolve your issue then you may write to results@audaxindia.org

Once rider finishes a brevet in stipulated time clearing all the intermediate checkpoints, he/she can apply for brevet medal & pay medal fee to club. Rider or club rep should tick medal as yes on the brevet card on completing the ride.

As the medals are not local made & sent by ACP France, it takes around 6 months for medals to come to India after ride is homologated. You have to collect your medal with homologated brevet card from the club where you rode the BRM. We distribute medals to clubs once every 6 months on average.
