Inspired by Randonnuering as well as our love of maps, cue-sheets, history, colloquial nuance and regional vernacular, Brovet is a Guide Book to American Permanents (Predetermined routes and rides—each permanent has been chosen for its intrinsic character, historical relevance and ride qualities.) about self-reliance to the point of absurdity, cycling from A-to-B and corn-dogging.
