    What is Mollets & Maroilles, the BRM 300 organized by Brussels Big Brackets Cycling Club on Saturday 8 June 2024?

    In 2023, the BBBs decided to organize their very first 200km BRM: Sweet Caroline.
    In 2024, the BBBs are going one step further by organizing a 300km BRM: Mollets & Maroilles!
    The start of this edition will be held in Anderlecht, taking the participants through the Parc Naturel Des Hauts-Pays to the beautiful village of Maroilles (famous for its gastronomy), while the return journey will take in the hills of the Parc Naturel du Pays Des Collines.
    We look forward to seeing you there for a great day of cycling!

    INFO / FAQ

    Not familiar with the BRMs? Here are a few hints!

    BRM stands for “Brevet des Randonneurs Mondiaux”. These are free pace cycling tours, organized by cycling clubs, without any competitive spirit and approved by the Audax Club Parisien since 1921. The BRMs organized by the BBBs respect the rules imposed by the Audax.

    Since 1975, those who wish to participate in the famous Paris-Brest-Paris (1,200 km) organized every 4 years by the Audax must participate in a certain number of BRM of 200, 300, 400 and 600 kilometers.

    The BRM are open to everyone, so you don’t have to be a member of the BBB to register!

    To participate in a BRM, you must register. Although it is possible to register on the spot on the day of the event, it is recommended to register online via the website randonneurs.be.

    There is a suggested departure time for a group start so that you can, as the kilometers go by, integrate yourself into a group that rides at your pace.

    Nothing prevents you from leaving a little earlier or later (alone or with your own group), just make sure you indicate your departure time on the control card that will be given to you at the start.

    The BRM itinerary is fixed in advance, so you will have to download the track on your GPS and get your control card stamped at the different checkpoints.

    At the end of the ride, you will have to return your control card to the organizer so that your brevet can be officially approved.

    This BRM is organised by Brussels Big Brackets under the patronage of randonneurs.be.

    BACK TO THE 2023 EDITION OF BBB'S BRM, "SWEET CAROLINE"

    The Brussels Big Brackets wanted to make their friends discover the North-East of Brussels. By the Dyle, via Werchter, until the Hageland. The track was the result of a joint project between several BRM enthusiasts of the club. The roads were chosen for their picturesque side, the signature of the BBB routes. A 200km accessible and open to people who want to try a Brevet.
    The name Sweet Caroline comes from the name of the little café in Kampenhout where the BBB decided to organize a BRM together.
