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.
At least one headlight and at least one rear light need to be attached to the bike during inspection. A second rear light must be available (and attachable). It must be fully working during inspection.
It is compulsory to have one working front light and two red tail lights in all circumstances.

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

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

IMPORTANT: Before the day of the event, print out, fill in and sign the waiver form. Only a paper copy is accepted at the start.

At the Start
  1. 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.
  2. Go to the check-in table, hand over your waiver form and collect your brevet card. This is the moment of your start time which will be marked on your brevet card.
  3. Check your brevet card and notify the staff if the data is incorrect or incomplete.
  4. Start immediately

At the Control points
  • When you arrive at the control point, take a photo, showing yourself and the control location. Keep the photo for a check at the finish
  • Instead of taking a photo, you can stamp your brevet card if a stamp is available.

  • After Finishing
  • Have your brevet card stamped and the riding time filled in.
  • Show the photos you took at the control points.
  • 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 (it will be sent to you at the end of the year).
  • 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.
