What is a RANDONNEUR/RANDONNEUSE?

A person, male or female, that participates in the sport of randonneuring, long-distance bicycling, not as a race, but as a self regulated pace in order to complete a designated route within a designated period of time. More information about randonneuring can be found on the Randonneuring USA (RUSA) web space at http://rusa.org/.
