Super Randonnee is a special kind of rides, 600 km long and with at least 10,000 meters of ascent. Super Randonnee is not a brevet, it is a permanent. A permanent ride does not have a fix date nor time of start, participants themselves decide when they will start. There are two riding options: Randonneur and Tourist. The Randonneur option is a time limited ride, while Tourist option is a non time limited. Because of the higher level of difficulty, the time limit has been extended to 60 hours, corresponding to a minimum average speed of 12 km/h. The requirement for Tourists is to complete the route with consecutive daily minimum riding distances of 80 km (i.e. seven days at most). The Tourist option is a great way to get to know the route and to prepare for the Randonneur option.
Upon registration (just send an email to: (email@example.com) randonneurs.croatie (at) gmail (dot) com, include your first and last name, postal and email address, year of birth, cell phone number, and selected ride option) and prior to the start every participant will receive a Super Randonnee card, map and frame badge, all to be kept throughout the ride. The registration has to be made at least two weeks prior to the start date. Those who have registered as Randonneurs must start from the official starting point. As Tourists, they can choose any other starting point on the cue sheet. Each rider must be covered by liability insurance. Any form of human-powered vehicle is acceptable. The vehicle must be powered solely by the rider. Riders are allowed to ride either alone or in a group. Any rider under the age of 18 must have the consent of a parent or legal guardian.
Each rider must be self-sufficient. No personal follow-vehicles are permitted on the course (not even on the check points). For night riding, bikes must be equipped with front and rear lights (rear lights preferably in flashing mode) attached firmly to the bike. Lights must be turned on at all times during hours of darkness or other low-light conditions (rain, fog, etc.). During hours of darkness or other low-light conditions, all riders must wear a reflective vest (this is mandatory according to Croatian Traffic law). Any violation of these night riding rules will result in the immediate disqualification of the rider. Backup lighting systems are strongly recommended in case the primary system fails and cannot be repaired on the roadside. It is strongly recommended to wear an approved helmet, light-colored clothes, and to carry a survival blanket and a cell phone.
