Randonneurs are long-distance unsupported endurance cyclists who cover distances between 200km and 1200km and beyond. Randonneuring has its roots in France and every four years in August Randonneurs from around the globe gather in this country to participate in the 1200km event Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP). The Korea Randonneurs were established in 2009 and the first Brevets were held in 2010 (BICYCLELIFE article). All Korea Randonneurs Brevets have been sanctioned by Audax Club Parisien (ACP 601000) and can be used to qualify for PBP. Check out our permanent new web site.

Typhoon Sanba catches up with Korea Randonneurs

CHOI Wu Yeong at the Busan finish
Despite a fast approaching Typhoon, a few hardy Korea Randonneurs decided to defy mother nature and ride the 600K Brevets (GBG and BGB) on September 15. Six riders started from Gwangju and three from Busan. At the start riders in Busan faced heavy rain but as the day progressed the skies cleared. As night approached the flood gates opened and heavy downpour challenged Randonneurs. Goon Koch (R in the picture with our very own Russell Morris), an American visiting Korea, who had started in Gwangju, was the first to arrive at the half way point in Busan. After another night of pouring rain and several crashes 5 riders finished this epic 600K Brevet within the 40 hour time limit. Four of the riders were our friends from TEAM BOODOO.
