Introducing Yonder Journal: Brovet 01 – Old Ridge Road Permanent

I love it when projects like this pop up and everyone involved are damn talented individuals. Introducing Yonder Journal, a project by Daniel Wakefield Pasley and Emiliano Granado. Without saying too much more, here’s the first installment of Yonder Journal: Brovet 01, Old Ridge Road Permanent.

“We like to think of ourselves as Cultural Anthropologists, armed with cameras and notebooks, compelled into the field to explore, document, digest and publish a lasting and meaningful record of our experiences there.

Yonder Journal will be a series of Briefs, Guides, and Studies that endeavor to understand and relate American Frontiers and Western Principles.”

“Today, we begin with our first of many Studies – Brovet. Inspired by the world of Randonneuring (long distance cycling), Brovet is a Guide book to American Permanents (predetermined routes) that aims to inspire, entertain, and inform.”

Click here to download the Official Cue Sheet and Brovet Card. Print the instructions and ride the ride using the turn-by-turn instructions therein. Complete the Brovet Card provided and send it to Yonder Journal to receive your Official Brovet Patch. More details inside. See more in the Gallery above!

    Brovet = Brevet?

    • John Watson

      It’s a play on words. Did you read up over on Yonder Journal?

  • Jordan Carroll

     Such an insignificant point but over here in the UK I’ve only heard them called Brevets

    • John Watson

      Yes, I know. Yonder Journal coined the term “brovet” last year, for this project. Bunch of “bros” doing a “brevet”.

    Looks rad, ~22,000 ft of climbing.  Gonna have to do this in the next few months.
