Brevets des Randonneurs Mondiaux

The Brevets des Ran­don­neurs Mon­di­aux are cycling out­ings of 200, 300, 400, 600 or 1,000 km on pre­de­fined routes with check­points. Rid­ers ride at a free pace, i.e. at the speed of their choice, but must respect a max­i­mum time lim­it to com­plete them (equiv­a­lent to an aver­age speed of 15 km/h includ­ing breaks).

The results of the brevets are sanc­tioned by the Audax Club Parisien, which launched the brevet for­mu­la in 1921 in France. It is now pos­si­ble to par­tic­i­pate in a Brevet des Ran­don­neurs Mon­di­aux in more than 50 coun­tries and on 5 con­ti­nents thanks to the asso­ci­a­tion Les Ran­don­neurs Mon­di­aux which gath­ers all the part­ner clubs.

The Brevets des Ran­don­neurs Mon­di­aux are held in a spir­it of non-com­pe­ti­tion and self-improve­ment. No reward is giv­en and there are no losers or win­ners.

The popular rides

In the cycling clubs, we call “pop­u­lar”, the out­ings of less than 150 km. They allow to test the phys­i­cal con­di­tion of the par­tic­i­pants while famil­iar­iz­ing them with the func­tion­ing of the club and the brevets.

Each par­tic­i­pant receives the usu­al doc­u­ments for a brevet, i.e. the road map and the rules.

These out­ings are not approved by the Audax Club Parisien as brevets.

The Audax formula

“We leave togeth­er… We arrive togeth­er”

These out­ings of 140, 200 or 300 km are super­vised by expe­ri­enced cyclists. They take place in groups with stops at each con­trol point.

There is noth­ing like it to start cycling with con­fi­dence!

The Audax brevets are indi­cat­ed in the cal­en­dar. Par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Audax for­mu­la is not manda­to­ry, i.e. you can always choose to par­tic­i­pate in the brevet in “free pace” mode.


Orga­nized in the spring, the arrows are team rides, last­ing 24 hours and cov­er­ing a dis­tance of at least 360 km. The event is sim­i­lar to a brevet, except that each team plans its own route.


Par­tic­i­pants who have suc­cess­ful­ly com­plet­ed their brevet can, if they wish, order a sou­venir medal.

These medals, at a cost of $15 each, are avail­able for each brevet com­plet­ed (200, 300, 400, 600 and 1,000 km).

The order must be entered on the brevet card and the par­tic­i­pant must include his pay­ment by cheque in the enve­lope pro­vid­ed for the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of his brevet. It is also pos­si­ble to make the pay­ment by inter­ac trans­fer to club.velo.randonneurs.qc@gmail.com (mdp:parisbrestparis).
