Promoting randonneuring and long distance bicycling in Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange Counties

About Pacific Coast Highway Randonneurs

PCH Randonneurs is a bicycle club with the mission of promoting randonneuring- a form of noncompetitive, long distance cycling- in the greater Los Angeles area.  Our club organizes and runs brevets in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties on behalf of Randonneurs USA (RUSA) and Audax Club Parisien (ACP). We offer a wide variety of rides- from coastal cruises to mountain climbs to urban bike path adventures to treks across the desert.  Have a look at our ride calendar, there is something to interest any randonneur.  We would love you to join us for a ride! You must be a member of PCH Randonneurs to ride our brevets. Membership cost is only $5. Join by clicking here.

The new RUSA insurance policy also requires you to be a current RUSA member to ride an event.  You can join RUSA here.  PCH Randonneurs recognizes that new riders might be deterred by the cost of joining.  If you are brand new to RUSA and you would like to try out randonneuring, check out this offer.

PCH Randonneurs is a nonprofit, all volunteer organization.  Formerly associated with Channel Islands Bicycle Club, PCH Randonneurs was incorporated as a separate entity in 2019.  

If you are new to randonneuring and want to learn more about our sport, you can find more information here.

All of our rides require advanced registration, usually by noon two days before the ride date.  There is no day-of event registration.  Each ride description clearly states when the registration period closes- so if you want to ride, please put a reminder on your phone or something so that you don't miss that deadline.  It is also very helpful to join our Google Group to stay informed about our rides.


News and Announcements

  • (05/20/21) The COVID situation is much better and most randonneurs have been vaccinated.  The latest CDC guidelines make it clear that outdoor gatherings of vaccinated individuals are very safe.  We will go back to group starts and riding together will not be discouraged.  You will still need a mask when you go into businesses.
     
  • We will run brevets when it is safe to do so and when government restrictions allow it.  Please read the Pandemic Plan to see how we will modify procedures to keep riders, volunteers, and the communities we ride through as safe as possible.
