For reference purposes only you can preview the routes in the Route Archive page. However, ONLY current year official cue sheets most be used on the event day as there may be changes in the route.

A brevet is a long distance recreational ride that is timed. Brevets are offered in progressively longer distances in order to prepare you for the challenges of the longest events such as the Paris Brest Paris Randonneur (PBP). A brevet tests your endurance and provides a unique opportunity for self discovery.

Depending on the distance, our events will travel northward though Marin, Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. The routes will vary from flat to hilly and will include segments of short frequent hills (rollers) as well as include several long hill climbs. Events in the past included the challenges of very strong head winds (gusts to 40 mph), rain, dense ground fog. You can read past events participants' reports by clicking on the linked names on the Brevet Results pages.

San Francisco Randonneurs' brevets are minimally supported events on unmarked roads to keep costs low.

These events are not for beginners.  The courses are hilly and can be windy.  There will be night time riding in the longer events.   You should have completed several century or double century cycling events in the six months before starting a brevet.

Voler is offering SFR a 2nd chance to order more jerseys. The orders are restored as they were before, meaning the same items are included, however I've added to the traditional design the option of the regular sewing in addition to the Flat Seam style (FS Pro is the flat seam with the visible stitching).

The new order window closes July 15th and items ship Sept. 6th. If there is a reason why you can't place an order for your self before July 15th, please send me mail and we can discuss this.

 SFR 2013 Synthetic Jerseys On the left is the New Design, on the right is the Traditional Design using the FS Pro (flat seam construction). Again, the jersey on the right is also available in the standard sewn style where the seams do not show (ie sewn like the jersey on the left)

To order jerseys in the new design, follow this link: http://
