Paris-Brest-Paris: part one

The 1200km Paris-Brest et retour was first raced in 1891 and is the oldest bicycle race still in existence, currently held as a brevet de randonneur every four years. Kieron Yates shares the agony and ecstasy of his second outing in an event that is only for the toughest of the tough.

Next week we’ll be talking about the race with a handful of other riders who will share their experiences and tips for anyone considering taking part.

    This podcast exemplifies why I love listening to The Bike Show and can justifiably put Jack Thurston on a media pedestal. Fantastic piece of work! I am listening to it a second time it was that good. Can’t wait for part 2.

    Top-notch episode, Jack and Kieron! The audio log from PBP was brilliant and left me feeling like I’d just ridden 1200k. It has been shared with many randonneur friends.
