A Brevet is an organized long-distance bicycle ride in the sport of randonneuring originating in Europe and enjoyed by cyclists today. Brevets are often colloquially called randonées. In a Brevet, cyclists - who, in this discipline, may be referred to as randonneurs - follow a designated but unmarked route (usually 200?km to 1400?km), passing through check-point controls, and must complete the course within specified time limits. These limits, while challenging, still allow the ride to be completed at a comfortable pace. Randonnée is a French word which loosely translates to 'ramble' or 'long journey'. Brevet means 'certificate' and refers to the card carried by randonneurs which gets stamped at controls. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition going back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring.
