16-20 August. Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) 2015 – 1230km. PBP is about cycling but more than that, it’s about the people! What a showcase for human endurance. With more than 4000 starters, we are waiting for the final results … What we can say is congratulations Gerrit and the South African contingent! Brilliant effort!
Gleaned from various first-hand accounts: good weather, no major spills (that we know of), and an amazing cross section of riders from around the globe – not quite a wine route tour but lots of adrenalin, sleep monsters and an overwhelming belief in the power to succeed! Wish we were there.
Some details of Cyclec friends doing the ride:
Gerrit. Great ride – 1230km in 86 hours and 56 minutes
Barry. 86 hours – on the button!
Kenneth. Made it to Brest. Well done!
Cyclec supplied Gerrit and Kenneth with SP Dynamo hub and lighting solutions for the ride.
