Paris-Brest-Paris – from the support organiser

After the grim grind in 2007’s rain, I entered again in the hope that I would have good memories of a PBP. 2011 exceeded all my expectations: all sorts of weather – mostly good and lots of tailwind, a fantastic amount of support from local communities along the way and the companionship of fellow riders.

The Willesden support team of Vyv, Marianne and Stephen were superb. Once I was out on the road, I could concentrate on, and enjoy my ride as they had everything in hand. Turning up at the locations, food was efficiently produced and the bedding was ready for a kip, with more food and drink when you got up, help filling bottles etc. to get back on the road. Fantastic!!!

Also getting team Willesden round was a team effort: John Davies, Liam, Ray, Wendy and Yoshi all provided invaluable help behind the scenes, both before and after the event.

It all worked. Thank you.

    Ian, Thank you very much for the citation. You did a fantastic job of getting the whole “Brest-Feeding” operation underway.

    Our support was the envy of many other riders – and made the difference between me failing and finishing.

    Thanks guys
