Accepted Proof of Passage

San Diego Randonneurs' brevet organizers accept the following method for proof of passage. 

  • Electronic proof of passage (EPP) - at the end of the brevet, you have 24 hours after the finish control's close time to submit a link of your activity saved on Strava, Ride with GPS (RWGPS) or Garmin Connect to the brevet organizer and/or the RBA. Please make sure your privacy setting is changed to public so that the entire activity trace is viewable. If you need to submit the entire activity in multiple activity traces, the end and beginning of each trace are near each other and viewable. Ideally, the sum of the separate traces will result in the entire route. You are responsible for making sure that your computer operates properly and that you check it regularly that it is recording. If your trace is missing any section, especially where you passed a control, the file you submitted will be rejected. You are also responsible for making sure that your activity is uploaded to whichever app that will report your brevet. As backup, you should take selfie photos at each control if your bike computer craps out mid-ride or cannot upload for whatever reason. Telling the brevet organizer or RBA that you rode with someone will not be accepted as an alternate form of proof of passage.
  • Selfies at controls - at the end of the brevet, you have 24 hours after the finish control's close time to submit to the brevet organizer or the RBA by email the selfie photos of you or your bike at the control. If the control is at a store, have that store in the background. If at an intersection, then have the street signs as your selfie background. San Diego Randonneurs organizers highly recommend that even if you are going with EPP, you should still take selfie photos as backup. 
  • Brevet card - if you require a traditional brevet card, please notify the ride organizer and/or RBA 72 hours before registration closes. You will be sent a PDF copy of the brevet card to print out on your own.
