Safety and Instructions

Essentials for safety and preparations to apply for Brevet
Be sure to check the checklist for Start, Control, Finish location.

Safety and Night Riding

1. Helmet & Light

All riders must wear an approved helmet.
For night riding, bicycles must be equipped with front and rear lights attached firmly to the frame. Riders must have backup lights as well (see FAQ question 4). Lights must be turned on at all times during hours of darkness or other low-light conditions (rain, fog, etc.). At least one of the rear lights must be in a steady (rather than flashing) mode. All riders' lights must meet the requirements of local laws. A rider is not permitted to cycle at night or in other low-light conditions without working front and rear lights. Each rider, whether riding in a group or alone, must fully comply with this requirement. Everyone must use lights!

 
2. Reflective vest & ankle band

All riders must wear a reflective vest. The vest must have fields or strips of reflective material, well visible from 360 degree all sides. More reflective materials can be added, but they must be permanent. (temporary tapes not allowed)
Riders also need to wear a reflective ankle band around each ankle.

 
3. Keep a good condition

Riding brevets is a serious challenge for your body and mind. Keep a good condition before events, and warm up before start. Notify to staff members if you feel any abnormality. If you feel any uncertainty in your body while riding, stop riding immediately and take a rest or other appropriate actions. Since brevets are run on a long distance and long time period, neither standby ambulance nor pickup service can be provided.

 
4. Waiver form & Insurance

All riders must have proper insurance that covers injury and hospitalization and submit to KoRa a copy of the insurance policy at the start (by paper copy or smartphone capture). No exception is allowed. National Health Care insurance can not cover costs for death or injury, so we require life or accident insurance.
Korea Randonneurs cannot be held responsible and liable in any way for any accident, death, disability, personal injury, property damage and property theft. It is therefore strongly advised that riders take an appropriate insurance by themselves. Before the start, riders have to sign a waiver form to acknowledge the responsibility.

 

Check-in Instructions

Please check each point checklist when participating.

Before the Start
  • Park your bike and first go to the check-in table.
  • Fill in and sign the waiver form and show proof of your accident insurance.
  • You will receive your brevet card. You can also receive control info and overview maps (for free), if you have not printed them by yourself in advance.
  • Check your brevet card and notify the staff if the data is incorrect or incomplete.
  • Go to the staff member in charge of inspection of your bike and your safety outfit. You have to comply with the rules of Safety and Night Riding. Eventually you can buy a safety vest and ankle bands at the bike inspection point.
  • After receiving a stamp on your brevet card when the safety check is OK, wait for the signal from the organizer to start. You are not allowed to start before the official starting time.


  • At the Control points
  • Present your brevet card for receiving a stamp, signature and time of arrival.

  • If either of these cannot be provided, please buy an item and get a receipt, which states at least the location, date and time of the purchase.

  • After Finishing
  • Have your brevet card stamped and the riding time filled in.
  • Sign your brevet card and leave it with the staff member. After your success is homologated by the parent organization ACP, it will be returned to you by mail (this takes normally several months).
  • You will receive a Certificate of Achievement for this ride.
  • If you wish, you can buy a medal at the cost of ₩15,000.
  •  

    Riders who finished the ride but not in the maximum time frame can still receive a certificate, but they cannot buy a medal. The brevet card will not be homologated by ACP. But after having checked the brevet card for the correct control stamps, the unsuccessful rider can still be listed in the results list on the Korea Randonneurs website, published soon after the day of the ride.
