Ryan’s PBP Video

I’ve really enjoyed the stories that have come out of last week’s Paris-Brest-Paris. Above is my friend and training buddy Ryan Hamilton’s short video, seen entirely through the eyes of his bike-mounted camera. I was moved when seeing the great big bridge that leads into Brest. My eyes welled up when seeing the food stands in the middle of the night. I smiled when I saw our friend Bruno pedal so smoothly on his chrome-plated Concours de Machines Alex Singer (in the yellow jersey). It’s these experiences and emotions that make Paris-Brest-Paris so special.

Which is your favorite PBP story? Put a link in the comments, so we all can enjoy it.

    The spirit of PBP and the spirit of randonneuring, thank you.

    Good choice of relaxing and harmonious music along with inspirational imagery. I only wish it was longer. 🙂

    Very nice! Thank you for recording and posting.
    Ony observation: Many modern seat bags seem to have a lot of tail motion and wiggle around even during normal pedalling.

      We joked about the fact that modern bikes seem to wag their tails like happy dogs.

    I am surprise there were not more Carradice saddle bags, which do not “wag” on PBP.

    Rode my first PBP in 2003 as a 29 year old. 3 kids and 16 years later my wife supported me in going again and see if I would enjoy it again. 74 hours of simple life: cycle, eat, sleep. Enjoyed every minute of it on my newly built chromed Alex Singer. See you in 4 years👍. Nice movie by the way👍
