(formerly the "Brevet de Randonneur 5000")
To receive a 5000 pin a rider must complete
5000 km in official randonneur events within four years. This
5000 km must include one ride at each distance in a basic series
(200, 300, 400, and 600 km), a 1000 km, a Flèche Velocio or equivalent (Flèche Pacifique in BC, 360+ km), and a Paris - Brest - Paris (1200 km).
You will notice that this adds up to 4060 km. Riders can choose
any combination of randonneur events (200 km or more) to bring
the total up to 5000 km. The name change referenced above happenning in 2007.
