Riding Permanents

Permanent rides are routes approved by Kiwi Randonneurs and are similar to calendar rides, following similar rules. For more detail, check out our rules on this site.

Permanent rides are homologated by Kiwi Randonneurs in New Zealand and are not recognized by ACP but do count to your overall annual distance and will show in the results for the season you ride in.

If you have your own route you want to ride, why not try out a DIY?
