Thank you for your interest in the Saratoga Brevet Series. Below are the general details for each ride. Use the links to guide you, and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

 

  


All of our brevets are part of the SARATOGA BREVET SERIES and are eligible for credit in the ADIRONDACK CUP. All of our brevets are sanctioned by AUDAX CLUB PARISIEN and RANDONNEURS USA, and we will follow their RULES & REGULATIONS.

All brevets start promptly. Please give yourself adequate time to arrive, register and get ready to ride. Riders are expected to be ready to ride and on the start line at least 15 minutes before the start for last minute instructions. No time credits will be given to riders that start late.

Some of our brevets start from the regional brevet manager's home at: 7 Pearl Street, Schuylerville, NY.  The regional brevet manager lives in a residential neighborhood, so please be courteous when arriving and departing and make sure not to block a neighbor's driveway or the street when parking. For travel directions and parking instructions, click here.

Entry fees must be in US dollars, and are non refundable and non transferable.

Brevets will be held rain or shine. If there's a chance of snow, ice or other dangerous conditions on early season brevets, they will be postponed and rescheduled. If that occurs, and a pre-registered rider can not make the new date, they'll be given a full refund or credit towards another ride, whichever they prefer. Otherwise, entry fees are non refundable and non transferable.

Brevets will be unsupported on the road, but services will be available most controls. Riders should plan on being self sufficient. Pocket food, snacks and drinks will be available before the start, and pizza or pasta will be served at the finish.

We also have a rider's checklist to help you prepare.

  


Same day registration will be available beginning one hour before each brevet. We accept cash, checks and credit cards.

   


Our brevets are officially sanctioned by Audax Club Parisien and/or Randonneurs USA and we follow their RULES & REGULATIONS. As such, riders must adhere to strict time limits. Each brevet will have an overall time limit, and several "controls" that each have their own time limit. To successfully complete a brevet, riders must pass through each control during the specified time frame, as well as finishing within the overall time limit. Riders carry a brevet card, which must be time-stamped at each control to verify their passage.

For more information on brevet rules and regulation, click here.

   


Lights and reflective gear are required from dusk to dawn. On some of our brevets the official time limit expires after dusk, but most riders should finish before sunset. On these rides we do not require lights, but it is solely the rider's responsibility to have proper lighting in the event they are still riding after dark.

Anyone caught riding after dusk without lights and reflective gear will be immediately disqualified from that brevet. To view our RIDER CHECKLIST, which includes our minimum lighting requirements, click here.

  


Please note that if you intend to use these brevets to qualify for a 1200 KM randonnée, you must be a member of RUSA starting with the first brevet you're going to use as a qualifier. If you need to renew your membership or join as a new member, you will be able to do so at any of our brevets.

Brevet cards will be mailed out to each participant when we receive certification stickers from RUSA for ALL of our brevets, which is usually in the late fall. If you need a certification number for a completed brevet before you receive your card, go to the RUSA website, and do a search for results.

Medals may be purchased by RUSA members directly from the RUSA STORE.

If you have any questions, or need more information, feel free to contact the Regional Brevet Administrator, John Ceceri.
