Choose your saddle wisely.
Itʼs not competitive. Itʼs long distance and itʼs one of the most enduring challenges associated with cycling. A Grand Randonnee is 1200km (720 miles approx.) and participants must complete the ride in less than 90 hours. Itʼs not a race as such, more of a personal challenge. Many participants of a 200km ʻBrevetʼ (as the individual events are known) use a road bike. But many donʼt, preferring instead to ride a dedicated Randonneur bike. A very versatile bicycle, designed to comfortably carry a range of supplies. Frames are normally lightweight steel, optimally sized and angled for hours of comfortable riding. Elianʼs created a number of reliable Tour bikes that are strong enough to endure the distances yet comfortable enough to make it less of an ʻenduranceʼ and more of a pleasure. Personalise the angles and geometry of frames, select your own gears, chainsets and design luggage racks, mudguards and even personalised integrated LED lights. But choose your saddle wisely, because youʼll be spending a long long time sat on it.
