PBP… the Riders are Off!!!

80 and 90 hour riders began to a warm and sunny send-off. The energy from the riders and the event enveloped this suburban town.

Festive, excited, nervous, twitching with anticipation… The start was amazing. I have never seen an international cycling event like this. Unforgettable!

One of the riders told me yesterday, “PBP is a chronic drug.” Not sure about that, but it sure is a thrill so far.

Our own journey starts in a few hours.
