Brevets 2010

Der Begriff Brevet bezeichnet im Amateur-Radsport eine organisierte Langstreckenveranstaltung, bei der von sogenannten Randonneuren eine vorgegebene, nicht ausgeschilderte Strecke (üblicherweise zwischen 200 km und 1400 km) mit passieren von Kontrollstellen innerhalb eines bestimmten Zeitraums geradelt wird. Bei einem Brevet legt jeder Fahrer seine Geschwindigkeit, Pausenzeiten und - bei langen Brevets - seine Schlafpausen selbst fest. Diese Fahrweise wird französisch "Allure Libre" genannt. Es sind alle Fahrräder zugelassen, auf denen sich der Radfahrer ausschließlich aus eigener Muskelkraft fortbewegt. Die meisten Teilnehmer verwenden eine Variante des Rennrads, welches oft über einen leichten Gepäckträger verfügt, der eine kleine Tasche mit Regenkleidung und etwas Proviant trägt. Dazu kommen Licht und je nach Jahreszeit Schutzbleche. Manfred benutzte 2010 ein für Langstrecken gut geeignetes Liegerad.

In the sport of randonneuring, a brevet is an organised long-distance bicycle ride. Cyclists - who, in this discipline, may be referred to as randonneurs - follow a designated but unmarked route (usually 200 kms to 1400 kms), passing through check-point controls, and must complete the course within specified time limits. With a Brevet every rider fixes his speed, break times and - in long-distance brevets - his sleeping breaks himself. This riding manner is called in French "Allure Libre". All bicycles on which the cyclist moves exclusively with own muscular strength are admitted. Most participants use a type of road bike which often disposes of a light carrier, which carries a small pocket with rainwear and some victuals. In addition light and according to season mutguards are common practice. Manfred used 2010 a recumbent bike, which is well suitable for long distances.

      Bicycle races and marathons up to a little more than 200 kms are organized by cycling associations. The associations belong via national unions (BDR in Germany) to the world federation cyclists UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale). The UCI has regulated very strongly, how bicycles must be built up. Only diamond frames are allowed. Thus, e.g., recumbent bikes are not permitted!
      So you don’t see recumbent bikes at events, that are organized by associations :-|
      Marathons with distances from 200 to 1400 kms are in Germany organized bei Audax Randonneurs Allemagne (ARA). The randonneurs don’t belong to the world federation UCI. The world federation of the randonneurs is Randonneurs Mondiaux (RM). For the RM apply the rules of Audax Club Parisien (ACP). By this rules are all vehicles allowed, that are powered by human muscles.
      That is the reason, why you see recumbent bikes only at events that are organized by randonneurs.
      For Russian long distance marathons apply the rules of ACP too! :-)))
