Brevet 300 2008

In 1921 the Audax Club Parisien (ACP) created a series of self-paced rides (200, 300, 400, 600, and 1200 km) for individual riders. In 1931 the ACP created Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneurs.
These events were called the Brevets de Randonneurs Français.

Randonnée is a French word which loosely translates to 'long journey'. Brevet means 'certificate' and refers to the card carried by randonneurs which gets stamped at controls; it is also used to refer to the event itself.

These rides have since become international in scope, becoming the Brevets de Randonneurs Européens in 1976 and the Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux in 1983. Since 1975, a series of 200, 300, 400, and 600 km brevets has been required to qualify for Paris-Brest-Paris, thus assuring that riders are well prepared for this difficult event.

Penya Ciclista Bonavista is representative of the Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux.
Last April 19, 2008 they organized a Brevet 300. The route was espectacular.
