Brevets are a long-distance cycling events for riders with experience riding on public roads. These events are NOT races. As organizers our goal is to provide you with a reasonably suitable route, some support, and information before and during the event to help you have a safe and successful day. However, the rides take place on public roads that are open to all traffic; therefore, we cannot eliminate all hazards or risks.
Your responsibility is to show up in appropriate physical condition for completing the event with a bicycle in good working condition, comply with all traffic laws, comply with the requirements of Randonneurs Nova Scotia, including rules governing lighting and reflective clothing, respect the rights of all other users of the route, and plan for the possibility of you not being able to finish the ride.
During any event involving open roads, accidents, collisions and incidents can occur that may result in serious injuries and even death. Although we cannot eliminate the risks, you can ride within your limits, be aware, be visible and reduce your risk of incidents.
