Paris Brest Paris (PBP) 2019

PBP 2019 to be held August 18th to 22nd, 2019 will be the 9th time members of the Prairie Randonneurs will participate in Paris-Brest-Paris.  In the past starting in 1987, we have sent between 5 and 16 members to Paris-Brest-Paris.  We still have a few dedicated members who started Randonneuring in 1991 and 1995 and are planning on going back to Paris again for their 5th and 7th time. 

An excerpt from the PBP 2019 brochure follows:

In August 2019, the PARIS-BREST-PARIS Randonneur will be back for its 19th edition. This long distance randonnée, held every four years, is one of the most famous cycling events in the world and may be seen as equivalent of the Olympic Games for cycling randonneurs.

The Audax Club Parisien is pleased to invite you to this famous long-distance randonnée. Under the auspices of the Fédération Française de Cyclotourisme, we are looking forward to welcoming you at the Bergerie Nationale in Rambouillet on August 18 and throughout the following days for one of the most exciting challenges in your life as a cyclist.

You will be among thousands of other riders from around the world participating in this mythical event, joining the long list of randonneurs having contributed since 1931 to the legend of the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur. Some will endeavour to succeed in either their 9th (female record attempt) or 12th (male record attempt) PBP, hats off !

The Paris-Brest-Paris is a special challenge. There is no classification and no podium, only the pleasure of effort under audiences’ encouragements here and there along the road.

About every 80 km on the route, local clubs organize check points for control, and offer food and sleeping options, as well as technical assistance and medical care.

Passion for this event is growing. You will join riders arriving from 70 countries to revel in the beautiful landscapes of Ile de France, Normandy, Maine and Britany.

Bonne route et bon vent

Qualifying Brevets

To qualify for PBP you must complete a Super Randonneur brevet series (200, 300, 400, and 600 km) of ACP-sanctioned brevets in 2019. Those brevets are offered in over 65 countries around the world. Prairie Randonneurs Super Randonneur brevet series starts in April 2019.

Limitation of Number of Entrants

PBP 2015 had 5870 riders start and 4610 successfully finished. PBP 2019 might be led to restrict the number of registrations in order to ensure the safety, the fluidity and quality of this event. The maximum total number of participants will be communicated early in 2019.


The registration period begins on June 1 and ends on July 3, 2019. Registrations can only be made through the PBP web site. You can register before having completed the qualifying brevets, but you need to provide the missing brevet certification numbers before July 3 or your registration will be cancelled.
