Paris-Brest-Paris and CRW
CRW will host a social event, a presentation by CRW members who have ridden this bicycling classic.
WHEN: Wednesday, February 27, 7 PM
WHERE: Lexington Depot in Lexington Center
Socializing from 7 PM; Light Refreshments will be served. Presentations followed by Q&A from 7:30 to 9 PM.
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.
