What is Randonneuring?

It is not racing, but it is more challenging than touring. Randonneurs attempt to complete a pre-determined route within a time period based on a pace between 15 and 34 km/h. During randonnées, riders can help each other, but an outside support crew is not allowed. Riders carry a brevet card, which must be validated at the controls to "prove passage" over the course.
