238. Israeli Brevet Series 2022

 

Hello,

Details about the Israeli Brevet Series of 2022. (Hebrew)




This post is in English, for anyone who is not fluent in Hebrew.
Israeli riders, please refer to the Hebrew version.

I am the representative of the ACP (Audax Club Parisien) in Israel.
This means that I'm entitled to send them the results of brevets held in Israel.

A few pointers to know if you want your rides in Israel to be recognized and homologated by the ACP:

*) All the ACP rules apply.

*) The dates for the Israeli brevet season of 2022 are:

The dates are also available as a Google Calendar (HTML View link, or iCal import link.)

*) A 600 SR permanent is also available for riding anytime. More details here.


*) Exact start location and time will be available at least 2 weeks before each brevet.

*) Exact route will be published at least 2 weeks before each brevet.
There is a chance that the brevet route will change before the start, considering various conditions (e.g. weather, road works, etc.), or even postponed by a week or more.

*) Controls can take different shapes and forms. e.g. (non final list!)

- Manned Control, where a person will be present at the control and provide proof of passage.

- Receipt Control, where you need to buy something at a store that will be open during the control opening hours (e.g. 24/7 petrol station's convenience store,) and keep the receipt with printed time and place.
Only the rider can buy the item (meaning: if you ride in a group, each rider must buy something!)

- Photo Control, where you need to take a picture at a certain place.
Make sure that the rider (and/or the bike) are visible in the picture, as well a feature of the area.
The picture can be taken by anyone (meaning: if you ride in a group, not everyone need to take a picture.)

*) A GPS recorded track can be used as proof under these terms:
A GPS proof can only replace a Photo Control (meaning: it cannot replace a Manned Control, nor Receipt Control, or any other control type.)
The file should be in .gpx format.
The recording should prove passage in all control points. e.g. if the control is a petrol station, the recording should show passage through the service road.
The recording can only prove passage for the rider itself. Meaning: if you ride in a group, only those with a gps can use it as proof.

*) Every brevet has a designated "Reports Controller."
The Reports Controller collects all the proofs of passage in controls.
They will check the proofs of passage, and produce an Excel file with the results of all the riders.
That Excel file will be sent to me, and I will pass it on to the ACP.
The Reports Controller is in charge of collecting riders contact details before the ride, checking proofs of passage, creating the Excel file, and sending it to me.
There are no other obligation and/or responsibilities for the Reports Controller.

As of writing of this post, the Reports Controllers are listed above.

I can be contacted first by email, and refer you to the relevant Reports Controller.
My contact details are listed at the relevant ACP page.
Alternatively, you can fill out this form, and approve the confirmation email (to prevent spam.)

*) The Reports Controller must be contacted up to 2 weeks before a brevet, according to the brevet dates written above.
It will help them getting ready with everything that's needed to follow the riders.
A rider who finished a brevet successfully is entitled to register with the ACP. This will be recognized all over the world, and could be used when registering to any brevet anywhere in the world.
Registration fees are 20 NIS (roughly 6 USD / 5 EUR / 4 GBP) per rider per brevet.
You need to pay the registration fees within 48 hours after a successful brevet.

Registration schedule for a support car (that you can meet only at controls) are the same as the riders. There are no fees for a support car.

*) After a successful finish, you can also get the official ACP medal. Each distance has its own medal.
You need to notify the Reports Controller that you want to get the medal.
The design of the medals changes every 4 years, after PBP.

*) Prices may change during the season. If they do change, it will only be to a lower price.
Prices will not be more expensive than the price listed above.
 
*) The brevets are held on public roads.
Therefore, there's no way we can block any other rider from riding on the same road at the same time as the brevet. But if you want your ride to be recognized, you must notify the Reports Controller before the brevet.
The Reports Controller is entitled to not recognizing any ride without giving any reason (before or after the brevet!)

Good Luck!

A few additional words about the brevets:
On 11/Jun/2022 we'll mark the 100th anniversary of the first brevet 300 on 11/Jun/1922.

Like every year we have a brevet SR Series (200, 300, 400, 600) in Israel.
This season we'll have our third Brevet 1200, which is good preparation for the PBP 2023, as well as allowing first priority in registration to PBP.

*) 200 Nov 2021, Southern. Start time is 05:00 am. From Kibutz Magen to Mizpe Ramon and back.

*) 200 Dec 24 2021, Northern, start/finish is at Bet HaShita to the Golan Heights and back. Start time is 05:00 am.
 
*) 200 Jan 7 2022, Southern, from Beer Sheva to the Dead Sea and back.
 
*) 300 Feb 24 2022, relatively easy out-and-back, from one of the Shfela train stations. There are no major climbs in this route.
Start time is 16:00 on a Thursday, finishing on Friday at noon.

*) 400 Mar 18 2022, not easy one-way, from Eilat on the Red Sea, to Tel Aviv, crossing the whole of the Negev desert in southern Israel, as well as the Ramon Crater. Start time is 09:00 on Friday, finishing on Saturday at 12:00 noon.
 
*) 600, relatively easy out-and-back, from Tel Aviv to Mitzpe Ramon and back.

*) 200 May 27 2022, Northern, from Afula to Katzrin in the Golan Heights and back through the Gilboa. Start time is 05:30 am.
 
*) 300 Jun 11 2022, A festive brevet, to mark ACP's 100th anniversary of the first Brevet 300.
 
*) 1200, Israel's Flagship event.
 
 
The brevets have an increasing level of difficulty.
Starting with a relatively easy brevet 200, continuing with a 300 that includes night riding.
Brevet 400 is a big jump above brevet 300. Brevet 600 adds another night of riding, with accumulated difficulty.


Personally, I would recommend the following brevets for first time riders in Israel:

*) 400, on March 18 2022. From the southernmost town in Israel, Eilat, on the Red Sea, to central Tel Aviv, crossing the whole Negev desert and the Ramon Crater, the largest in the world! On Saturday morning you'll be passing through Israel's hub of road cycling - You'll get a taste of what it's like. Then you'll go through one of Tel Aviv's main roads, with many cafes and restaurants full of people having a Saturday breakfast or brunch.

*) 200, on May 27 2022, Lots of scenery and history.

Tal.
