The Paris-Brest-Paris is a 1,200 km cycling event held every four years in August in France. The dis­tance must be cov­ered in a max­i­mum of 90 hours. The thou­sands of reg­is­tered par­tic­i­pants and the gen­er­ous wel­come along the route make the PBP the biggest long-dis­tance cycling fes­ti­val in the world!

The 20th edi­tion of the Paris-Brest-Paris will take place from August 20th to 24th 2023.

In order to par­tic­i­pate, cyclists must first com­plete at least one brevet in 2022. The homolo­ga­tion of this brevet allows to pre-reg­is­ter for the Paris-Brest-Paris in ear­ly 2023. The longer the dis­tance of the homolo­gat­ed brevet, the ear­li­er you can pre-reg­is­ter for the event.

For this 20th edi­tion, the num­ber of places avail­able for inter­na­tion­al ran­don­neurs will be lim­it­ed to 5500 par­tic­i­pants. The orga­ni­za­tion has decid­ed to reserve 2500 places for ran­don­neurs asso­ci­at­ed with French clubs. It is there­fore strong­ly rec­om­mend­ed to com­plete a longer brevet in 2022, in order to guar­an­tee your pre-reg­is­tra­tion, as the places will be quick­ly tak­en.

In the 2023 sea­son, you will need to val­i­date your reg­is­tra­tion for Paris-Brest-Paris by com­plet­ing at least four brevets (200, 300, 400 and 600 km) by July 2023. The order of com­ple­tion of the brevets will not mat­ter and a brevet may be replaced by a longer one. The 2023 CVRQ cal­en­dar will be orga­nized to max­i­mize our mem­bers’ chances of reg­is­ter­ing.
