Is this no longer a thing? All reference seems to have disappeared from the auk website. I was expecting PBP to be my 4th ride.

Thanks. Does anyone know if once a claim is made those rides cannot be used in a subsequent claim.

Ie if I was an ISR from 4 European rides, would upgrading to 2 continents require one additional ride or one ride outside Europe plus 3 previously unused rides in different European countries.

You need four brevets in different countries to claim an ISR. Your next ISR requires another four brevets. There is no upgrading of an existing ISR.

Does one's home country count?
If yes then I could claim with 1200+ km rides in France, Italy (well once it's validated & online), The Netherlands & the UK.

(In my mind it feels like it should be four foreign rides.)
What on earth am I doing here on this beautiful day?! This is the only life I've got!!

Any four countries count towards an ISR. Whether you live in any of them is of no account.

Different continents are recognised, as are ISRs with minimum LRM brevet distances of 600, 1000, 1200 and (to date) 1400km.

I always assumed 3 overseas rides + home country is enough to meet the requirement for randoneering overseas. I have 1000 netherlands and 1000 belgium, PBP will add 1200 France, and I have 600 UK, but I wouldn't want to claim on those 4, as better to have 4 mille rides, including one in a second continent.
