What is a Permanent?

A Permanent is a brevet, but it can be ridden on any day, chosen by the rider. Regarding distances, time limits, controls, brevet cards, certificates, they are similar to regular BRM brevets. Also digital information like GPS files, Google Map links, overview maps, are available in exactly the same way as usual. Permanents are typically designed by enthusiastic randonneurs, but the administration and control of Permanents is overseen by Korea Randonneurs. A permanent can be done individually but also in a group. If you are a first time participant in a randonneuring event, please make sure you fully understand the rules of regular brevets

Baekdudaegan Challenge

There is a special randonnee called the "Baekdudaegan Challenge", which combines 4 permanents (PT-19, PT-20, PT-21 and PT-25) into one, with a length of 1760 km. The course is extremely mountainous, the total of climbing meters exceeds 40,000m. The four stages can be done separately but must each have been successfully finished within one year. There is a special certificate for this longest and toughest cycling marathon. Only a few members have ever achieved this monster marathon, see the Honor Roll.

How to ride a Permanent

  1. Send an email to Jan Boonstra at janboonstra49@gmail.com with the following information:
    • The Permanent code (PT-01 ~ PT- ), see the listing above.
    • The member number(s) and name of the rider(s)
  2. You will receive payment instructions: 14,000 won per person per permanent. After we receive payment, you receive a confirmation that you are registered. Only after registration, you can start the permanent. Please register at least one day before you want to ride the permanent.
  3. Download and print out the permanent sheet yourself and also the waiver form, by clicking this button on the info page of the permanent and the sheets look like this picture on the right:
    But if you prefer to receive the brevet card and waiver form by mail (like it used to be) and use that instead of a permanent sheet, please mention it in the email when you apply for the permanent. NOTE: requesting a paper card is not possible in the months July, August, December and January and when using a paper card, changing to a different permanent is not possible. Allow 7 to 10 days for making and sending it and for the post to deliver it (by normal mail).
  4. Download the GPX file, overview map and control info sheet from the permanent info page and print it out.
  5. Before the start, send a photograph of the waiver form by Kakao Talk. At the start, make a start-picture, showing the riders at the starting point. The time of making the picture is the official starting time. Send pictures immediately to Jan Boonstra by Kakao Talk, telephone number 010-8915-7046
  6. At controls (CP) at convenience stores, get a stamp and mark the time of passing. If you cannot get a stamp, use the CP as a photo control. At photo controls, send the picture, showing the riders and the control point, immediately by Kakao Talk.
  7. The results will be added to your personal record, but only if you were registered for the permanent. On the permanent control sheet fill in the date and riding time and don't forget to place your signature. If you like to receive a certificate (for free) and a homologation of your permanent (stamp and signature on the control sheet), send the permanent control sheet by normal mail to Jan Boonstra, Busan City, Jungangdaero 981, Sentevil #513. postcode 47903.

More information about permanents

All rules regarding safety and night riding apply, as well as the obligation for proper accident insurance. Participants must be KoRa members. If needed, riders may register at the Online Registration Site. KoRa permanents differ from regular BRM brevets as follows:
  • Permanents are not ACP sanctioned, meaning that a successful permanent does not count toward the Super Randonneur qualification. But they do count for KR5000 and R12 awards
  • Distances outside the BRM-scheme (200, 300, 400, 600, 1000 km) are possible and the listed kilometers will count for one's personal mileage record.
  • The time limit is calculated from an average speed of 15 km/h, using the actual distance and counting from the actual starting time. Example: Starting time is 7:10 am and the distance is 204 km. The riding time is calculated as 13h 36m, so the rider needs to send his arrival photograph before 8:46 pm.
  • Apply only by email to janboonstra49@gmail.com
  • A permanent registration has a validity of 6 months. It is not refundable and cannot be exchanged with the registration of a regular brevet.
  • A cue sheet is not provided.
  • The bicycle inspection at the start is not carried out by a KoRa staff, it is the responsibility of the rider to ensure the safety of his/her bike in accordance with the rules.
All other brevet rules apply, including the regulations mentioned in the FAQ page.

NOTE:
Saying thanks to all active members who want to send in a proposal or have sent in a proposal for a new permanent, we are sorry to say that there are many proposals waiting to be processed at this moment. Due to other duties (2018 program, maintenance on existing permanents), new permanents cannot be effected in the next coming months.
