RUSA members may ride thousands of permanents located throughout the 50 United States, participate in brevets & earn a wide variety of awards, receive the quarterly American Randonneur magazine, ride with terrific cyclists from across the country, and more.  RUSA represents American riders in qualifying and participating in Paris-Brest-Paris, the premier long distance randonee in the world, held every four years, next in 2015.

If you aren’t a RUSA member, you may still register and ride in brevets, but you cannot ride  permanents.   Your results will not be kept, and you cannot qualify for awards.
