Scheduled Rides

Ride Calendar for 2018

  • BRM rides operate under the RULES OF BREVETS RANDONNEURS MONDIAUX and are sanctioned by Audax Club Parisien. BRM rides are recognised by other randonneuring organisations around the world and can be used to qualify for many interesting international events.
  • Gravel rides operate under Kiwi Randonneurs Gravel Rules and are not recognised by other international clubs for qualifying purposes. A few flatter gravel rides are still operated under BRM rules.
  • Road/100 rides are not recognised by other international clubs for qualifying purposes.
  • "Other New Zealand Long Distance Cycling Events" are not organised or sanctioned by Kiwi Randonneurs or ACP. We have included other long-distance cycling events in this calendar that may be of interest to our members. From 2016 onwards we will include members distances in these events for our annual mileage statistics.
