Support we provide

Randonneuring encourages self-suffiency. For this series we will arrange limited support to ensure that riders are not stuck in the middle of nowhere (or is that middle earth?) should you encounter a major mechanical or injury. We will also ensure that you will not be left with an empty stomach because you arrived after closing time.

  • Accomodation during the ride
  • Meals at overnight controls
  • Transport of one overnight dropbag for riders (please pack compactly, should be no more than an airline carry on bag; same bag for all controls)
  • SAG for abandoned riders in case of breakdown or injury
  • Brevet cards, cue-sheets and GPS files.
  • Food will only be provided at selected checkpoints, where services such as cafes, stores or pubs are not expected to be available at the time we anticipate riders to arrive while remaining within time-limits.
  • Support and accomodation is organised based on riders making use of overnight controls. If a rider chooses to carry on without stopping at organised overnight controls they may be in front of any organised support that we provide.
