What is the BC Randonneurs Cycling Club?

 


The mandate of BC Randonneurs is to organize rides in accordance to the rules of randonneur cycling as practiced by Audax Club Parisien in France. BC Randonneurs was a founding member in 1983, of Randonneur Mondiaux which organizes brevets 1200 km or longer worldwide. Randonneur Cycling is sometimes referred to as marathon cycling and can be described as fast long-distance cycling. The activities of the club and the general information about the sport is discussed more fully elsewhere on this site on this page: An Introduction to Randonneur Cycling.

Randonneur Cycling in British Columbia began in 1979 and for many years operated as a sector of the Bicycle Association of British Columbia (now called cycling BC). In March 1996 BC Randonneurs became an autonomous entity, and is now defined as a 'society' under the Societys Act of British Columbia (Incorporation number: S-35024). Additional historical info HERE.

The club presidency changes yearly. Traditionally the president has been succeeded by the Vice President. All other positions on the Randonneur Committee are reconsidered yearly, though the same person may hold a post for multiple years.
