The iconic 750 mile Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) ride runs from Paris westward to the Atlantic and back. CRW members will illustrate and describe their PBP experiences.
PBP is the world's oldest organized bicycling event, first run in 1891. It is above all a test of endurance, not open to professional racers . Riders are allowed 90 hours to finish and may eat and sleep at control points along the route.
Expect an entertaining evening as our hometown heroes tell their stories. Did you know that CRW member Harriet Fell was among the first group of Americans to complete Paris-Brest-Paris? Melinda Lyon was the first female finisher in a PBP -- twice? Two CRW members completed it on fixed gear and two others on a tandem?
But also, PBP will run again in 2019. Might you be interested in PBP? Here's your chance to find out more.
Ride Studio Cafe has worked with several PBP riders to design their ideal bike for this endurance event. Read more about the designing the perfect Paris-Brest-Paris Bike here.
