Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring.

What is a Permanent? A Permanent is like a brevet but you can arrange to ride it any time, not just on one specific date established by the organizer. Like brevets, routes can start and finish in the same location, but they can also run point-to-point, and can be any distance of 200km+ (100-199km for a Permanent Populaire). You must be a RUSA member to ride a Permanent (or a member of another ACP-affiliated country organization.) A Permanent may be ridden alone or with a group.

EPP Policy:  My goal with EPP is to augment the traditional Brevet card system without altering the general spirit of riding a Permanent.  For this reason, i will only accept time stamped or goetagged selfies at the controls.  Riders can text me the images as they take them or email them to me at the end of the ride.  I ask that the selfie have three things:
  1. the rider(s)
  2. enough of the control in the background to quickly validate it is the control
  3. the time stamp of when the picture was taken, or txt the picture to me at the time it was taken.
Timestamp Camera:  This is the iPhone and Andriod application I have used to create geotagged selfies. 

If you choose to using EPP (and/or I join you for the ride), any fees for the ride will be waived.
