Paris - Brest - Paris 2019


It was on my list for 2019 but unfortunately I don’t think it will work out.

Hit 400k on my longest ride last year so I’m aiming for a 600k, probably around June.


2023 for me. I’ve only done 2 seasons of Audax and I’m keen to build past my 300km max so far.

Besides, if I shoot for all my goals now, what will there’s be left to aim for in later years?


If you’ve done a 400, you’ve done the hard part. You can look at a 600 as a 400, some sleep, then a 200. I think 400’s are the toughest.


400k is the classic randonneuring distance. A 1200k is just 400k, 300k, 300k, 200k. So if you have ridden a 400k, that means you are ready for 600k and 1200k. I know some people want to have PBP as a goal, but doing it more than once is a better goal. My goal has been to ride a 1200k each year. I might try to do a 1000k in June.


I’ve just signed up for my first 400km in Wales this April, it has some 18,000ft of climbing.

Draft route:
Event Info: ( It’s A Kind of Teifi Traveller (414km))

Most I’ve ridden outdoors was a 121km last summer and most indoors was 143km via Zwift, on the recent Disaster day event. Currently doing the HIIT HV plan and soon to start the Century high volume plan before this event. Thank you Calendar!

Hoping all this training will have my body in a decent shape to complete the Welsh orbit. Do believe it will be more of a mental battle and I am really looking forward to it.

At some point I may look into doing the PBP but my ultimate aim is the tour divide and this is another step towards that goal.

Have also signed up for another 400km in May :slight_smile:


I just pre-registered for PBP. They sent me a broken pdf, hopefully that’s not bad news :slight_smile:


I wouldn’t think so. It just means everything is normal at ACP and you did everything correct. You really know you are on track when you prefer the information in French rather than the translation into English, even if you only know 5 or 6 words of French.


Pre-registered PBP-954, starting 18:30. My PDF worked out ok, but I can tell from others that you are not the only one to get a broken one.

There’s not much in it. Your particulars (address, email, phone number), your club association, your type (bicycle in my case, not tandem or whatever) and your starting time.


they finally sent me a good PDF yesterday, and I can see my details online now. 1800 start, front row! Okay, probably not the front row. I might try to get there on time to see the 80 hour guys off this time, I saw them on my way into Loudiac last time.


I’m 15 minutes behind you. Enjoy your training.
