Fri 21st August

All done and dusted. Stories will abound. Tradition is to swap jerseys at the end and here an Australian PBP2015 jersey now has a new home in India.

Thu 20th August

The faster riders of the 90 hour group are now finishing, and we've seen some of the Australians come in. Being 1am France time when this is posted many riders will be taking a sleep, but at the tail of the field the clock is now a big pressure and we'll see some big efforts to make cutoffs.
Phillip Jang who is in hospital as a result of a crash had surgery and a number of us have since spoken with him. He seems in good spirits, although obviously disappointed.
Shane Starling (maybe an ex-pat rider) announced his abandonment due to Shermer's Neck, a syndrome where the rider is no longer able to support their head (look upright) with their neck muscles.

Tour, sightsee and finish an endurance event. Nice one!

The Randonneur Hotel - the real experience of Paris Brest Paris is the first time you walk into a gym full of snoring cyclists.

Nicholas Booth first Australian back to Paris 18/8 16:28 48h12m. Fast times are inspiring and lanterne rouges inspire. Let's get behind the LRTs (Lanterne Rouge Types) and cheer them back to Paris. Allez!

The riding awards for the 2013-14 season were presented at the Annual General Meeting on Sat 25th of January, 2015. The award recipients announced are listed by award and then in alphabetical order by surname. 

The 2015 calendar is finalised and online as either PDF File or Excel compatible.

For the 2015 season we will not be producing a printed calendar booklet, instead we will be making two versions of the calendar available for download.

The traditional calendar booklet has been produced entirely as a PDF file for download. PDF can be displayed on computers, tablets and handheld devices, is searchable and still preserves the look, feel and formatting of the traditional document. The whole document can be printed, or selectively just sections or pages of interest.

Additionally the data will be provided in a spreadsheet compatible format. This allows for viewing in applications such as Excel or OpenOffice, but is easier for filtering and searching (ie. when is the next 600 prior to the end of qualifying period of PBP).

If you're not on Facebook you may have missed a lot of the photos from PAP. Here's a small selection to wet your appetite for riding in the West.
