Randonneuring a particular style of non-competitive long distance endurance cycling that has its origins in France, dating back to the early 1900s. Even though randonneuring goes back to the early days of bicycling, it is an aspect of cycling unfamiliar to many people, including seasoned cyclists.
I'll try to touch on a few particulars of the sport without going into excessive detail, but I admit up front that we randonneurs can go on an on. That's part of what our sport is about.
