Welcome to Northern Virginia Randonneurs (NVR), the bicyclist's resource for information about randonneuring in the Northern Virginia!
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.
We are affiliated with Randonneurs USA (RUSA). RUSA membership is optional. However, if you enjoy these events, we hope you will join RUSA. In addition to supporting the sport of randonneuring in the US, as a RUSA member you can ride any permanents; qualify for and purchase awards, view your results on the RUSA website, and you receive the quarterly American Randonneur magazine.
You may join/renew with RUSA up to and including the event start.
