We are thrilled to bring randonneuring events to the greater Detroit area.

Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling.
This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount.
When riders participate in randonneuring events, they are part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning
of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie, not competition, is the hallmark of randonneuring.

Randonneurs USA (RUSA) membership is not mandatory for participation, but is greatly encouraged. JOIN NOW!
