Rocco Memorial Ride 500 aka Bog Standard or Pinner-Brecon-Pinner (PBP)

Willesden CC member Martin Lucas has kindly sent in the following report:

As a fond memorial to Rocco,  a select group of long distance cyclists gathered early on Saturday 18th August. Their aim was to follow a route established by Rocco himself from Willesden territory to Brecon in SE Wales and back for a distance of over 500 km; a good fast route on major roads with a few hills to test the legs and descents to test the nerves. Add a tandem into the mix to speed progress on the flat and all the essential ingredients were in place, even the summer made a re-appearance.

The ride was completed in true Rocco Rocket style with the group remaining together for a very sociable weekend awheel. Rumour has it that the route will be established as an Audax UK permanent event so that others can ride in the future.
