Paris-Brest-Paris

Comprising 1,200km of long-distance cycling, Paris–Brest–Paris (PBP) – sometimes referred to as the Blue Riband randonnée – is the most pretigious brevet ride in the world. Held on an out-and-back course between Paris and Brest every four years, PBP started in 1891 as a race and was regarded as the precursor to the Tour de France. In 1931, riders in the PBP were separated into three categories: a professional category of cyclists who were in it for the competition, and two non-professional categories, one of which were audax cyclists riding as a group and maintaining a steady pace, and the other being allure libre (free-paced) cyclists who were riding individually in the spirit of self-sufficiency. As interest in long distance cycling had waned in favor of stage events like the Tour de France, the professional race part of the PBP was lost in 1951, leaving only the randonneuring part of the event. However, in 1975 the audax and the allure libre groups split up and formed two different PBP events. Today, the Audax Club Parisien runs the event every four years in their allure libre format, while the Union des Audax runs it every five years in their audax format.
