Hi Brevet riders,
We are getting a great response to next years brevet - so that is very exciting.
Just a couple of things:
1. Yes we are running Brevette again next year (the smaller 700km brevet) - sorry we were supposed to add that into the last post but forgot.
2. We are currently setting up a new facebook page - once we have this up & running we will let you know so you can 'Like' us & keep up to date with any brevet news.
3. I have had some emails from people who are looking for training buddies for weekend missions, if you are keen to meet like minded brevet riders for training sessions - feel free to email me & I can put you in touch with anyone in your area who has contacted me..
4. Entries will open early Nov (date tbc).

IT’S BREVET SEASON
Hello 2015 Brevet riders,
Whether you are an old hand or a new brevet adventure rider … its only 6weeks until daylight savings & 24weeks to the start of the Brevet – yahoo
Hi there we are Jo & Scott Emmens…. And we are the new official planners of the 2015 brevet.
Both Scott & I have ridden the Kiwi brevet 2 times – in each direction, we both have a huge passion for cycle touring & brevet style rides.
So we are super excited & amped to be organising the brevet this time around as we have both loved the adventure this ride brings to people.

With only 6 weeks until daylight saving (which also means warmer weather) I hope you are all starting to think about your brevet training & all the fun weekend adventures ahead to get prepared for February.
Scott & I have been reading all the feedback from this year’s brevet & we are starting to look at the course.
We have some other brevet riders who are suggesting small amendments to the course to make it more enjoyable, so we are busy in discussions with them to design the best course for everyone.
We will be keeping the course pretty similar to the 2014 route – but we will be running it in reverse.
Over the next few weeks / months we will start posting links to blogs of other riders doing awesome cycle adventures, we will be posting gear lists, & other fun bit & pieces to keep you interested.
But 1st if you have not already please take the time to read the blogs attached to the Kiwi brevet page & get a feel for what is in store for you & get you super excited about the adventure ahead.
By reading these you will learn a lot of tips & tricks to riding a brevet & finishing successfully.
Also top tips on the best places to stop…camp…eat…sleep… etc.
So if you have any questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact us at
If you are a new brevet rider & just want to chat about what is in store for you on the brevet– please contact us, we would love to talk to anyone & answer any questions you might have.
So dust off those bikes, get them in for a service & start getting that backside some serious hours in the saddle (trust me you will thank yourself for thisJ)
Brevet 2015 countdown officially starts now…..
