Event description
Audax UAE Randonneur 200 kms BRM – This is the first 200 km BRM event to be conducted in UAE on 19-March-2022. A BRM is not a race or a competition so there are no podium positions for fastest finishers. A rider who has successfully completed a 200 km brevet is called a Randonneur. This is a lifelong title.

A 200 KM BRM is the simplest of brevets that requires the least amount of training. More than the physical strength you need the “I-can-do-it” attitude.

Randonneuring - Randonneuring is a long distance Endurance Cycling with rides of 200, 300, 400, 600 and 1000 kms called Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux (BRMs).

Audax Club Parisien (ACP) Is the international governing body for randonneuring that administers and oversees the conduct of BRMs worldwide. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. Participation in randonneuring events is part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie and perseverance are the hallmarks of randonneuring.
