Join the SF Randonneurs for this 200K brevet! Challenge yourself to complete the course in 13.5 hours or less. This 200K route course starts and finishes at the Golden Gate Bridge. In between, you’ll head to Petaluma using the same route as the classic Russian River 300k and then back via ValleyFord. About 6500 elevation gain.
Randonneuring is a long-distance cycling sport with its origins in audax cycling. In randonneuring, riders attempt courses of 200 km or more, passing through predetermined “controls” (checkpoints) every few tens of kilometres. Riders aim to complete the course within specified time limits, and receive equal recognition regardless of their finishing order. Riders may travel in groups or alone as they wish, and are expected to be self-sufficient between controls. A randonneuring event is called a randonnée or brevet, and a rider who has completed a 200 km event is called a randonneur.
The San Francisco Randonneurs were founded in 1990 in order to meet participation requirements for the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonnée and organized the regional qualifying brevet series in 1990/91, 1999 and from 2003 until present. SFR membership includes over three hundred dedicated cyclists ranging in age from 17 to 65+ and from varied career paths.
To belong to the SF Randonneurs you need to be interested in long distance cycling. And, of course, you need to fill out the membership application. We are a very low-key group. Specific rules and activities beyond PBP qualifying will be at the discretion of the membership.
