  • Brevet is a French word for which we have no direct translation for its cycling usage. In general, it means a "patent", "certificate", or "diploma". For the randonneur or randonneuse, the randonnée (a long ramble in the countryside) they have entered is often called a "brevet". This is typically a challenging 200, 300, 400, 600, 1000 or 1200 kilometer ride, each with a specific time limit. A randonneur carries a brevet card which is signed and stamped at each checkpoint along the way to prove they have covered the distance successfully. To pronounce the word correctly: "brevet" rhymes with "say" or "Chevrolet", not "get" or "let".
