2011 Brevet Series

Information about Davis Bike Club 2011 brevets.

Riders on the 2009 Gold Rush RandonneeThe DBC 2011 Brevet Series is a training program to prepare riders for the longer distance events offered to randonneurs around the world. Our reputation for successful preparation of riders is legendary as are our brevets. Our brevets are designed for cyclists experienced in riding 100+ mile events and looking for longer distance challenges, something new, or joining the ranks of those who've completed Paris-Brest-Paris or other "grand randonnees" of 1200km or longer.

Dates are:

  • 200km ACP brevet (Sat, March 3rd, 2012)
  • 300km ACP brevet (Sat, March 17th, 2012)
  • 400km ACP brevet (Sat-Sun, April 14-15, 2012)
  • 600km ACP brevet (Fri-Sun, May 4-6, 2012)

The DBC brevets can be used as qualifiers for other 1200 km brevets in 2012, The brevets can also be used toward qualifying for the 2011-12 RUSA Super Randonneur award and the Randonneur 5000 award.

The DBC brevets can be used as qualifiers for 1200km rides in the United States in 2012. See the complete listing at http://www.rusa.org.

Rider control/time stations (similar to century ride rest stops) are 30-65 miles apart and will be stocked with basic foods and beverages as part of the entry fee for all the events. Lee Mitchell and other well-known DBC volunteers will provide course monitoring during all brevets. In keeping with the randonneur spirit of self-sufficiency, sag support for DNF'ers may be minimal, so come prepared to finish and don't plan on giving up easily!
