Paris Brest Paris Bike Ride
Scott B. hangs with some serious gear heads. He sent me an email about another event that Andrea’s husband (still nameless) is considering. I think we’re going to have to meet this Andrea’s Husband guy. He might be brainwashing Scott.
Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) is a non stop 1200km randonnee bike ride from Paris to Brest on the west coast of France and then back again to Paris. Participants can choose from three maximum time limits: 80, 84 or 90 hours. These time limits include all your stops, including eating sleeping and anything else you might need to do over 4 days!
The event is the most prestigious on the global Audax calendar and is aspired to by thousands of particpants from all continents once every four years; the next PBP will be in August 2011.
