Four years ago, I rode a few long rides up in Wisconsin to qualify for a 1200 km ride called Paris-Brest-Paris. Initially, I didn’t plan on going to France. I didn’t think I was capable of riding 2 or 3 hundred miles let alone 750. I attempted each qualifying brevet with the thought that I may not complete it. It seemed so extreme at the time. Looking back it still seems like finishing my first 300K brevet was the most difficult ride I’ve done. Eventually, I made it through all the brevets and completed PBP. That experience got me hooked on long distance cycling. I get on a plane Friday to go ride it again and am looking forward to it just as much as the first time. Maybe more. Should be a bit less painful this time.
