On August 17, 2015, I will be riding in the longest solo ride of my life, and am proud to participate in the most famous long-distance randonnée event known as Paris-Brest-Paris. This event, held every 4 years, will bring thousands of riders from all over the world, and among them on this epic journey will be the colors of Team PHenomenal Hope.
This ride will be the farthest I've ever ridden at one time. I have only 3.5 days to cover 1230km (thats 764 miles), over twice the longest distance I've ever ridden solo. Unlike many past ultracycling races, this time I won't have a crew with me guiding me every step of the way. Randonée events are about being self-supported, if your bike breaks, fix it. If you hurt somewhere, deal with it.
But I won't be riding alone. I'll be riding with the members of the PH community, PHriends and friends in my mind and heart.
