The "randeurive" (pronounced: ran-deu-reave) is a research strategy that very loosely fuses elements from the long-distance cycling sport of rantdonneuring with the Situationist concept of dérive. In randonneuring, cyclists attempt to complete routes of 200km or more in a given time period, stopping in at check points every so often. Like a randonneur the randeurive uses a bicycle in order to engage in long-distance travel, allowing us to get outside of our immediate surroundings and broaden our view of psychogeography and constructed landscapes.I use the randeurive as a research methodology in order to retrace and de-scribe these spaces, as well as the technical objects, people and social relations that fill them.
