Fascinating Classic Cycling
Hard to tell if there's any Campagnolo in these videos, but this archival footage, mostly from Paris in the 1930s and 40s, is full of fascinating images. Look closely and you'll see many things that recently became "new" again after all these years--recumbent bicycles, small-wheeled bikes, arm-powered "rowing" bicycles, high performance trailers, and more.

The Reviews Are Coming In ...
... for Paris Brest Paris: The Movie, our latest video production. Here's what viewers are saying:
"Fantastic. I started watching, sure that it would be just another boring bike video.
I was wrong. Susan & I watched, spellbound. We got a real feel for the event..." Steve, California
"Great, great video. I am so tired after watching and empathizing that I think I will go take a nap. Thanks for the effort to put this together. It is an inspiration" Jim, Massachusetts
"Artfully done and incredibly evocative! Bravo, and thanks for sharing that for we armchair PBPers." Jim, California

My, How Time Flies
It seems like yesterday (almost) that we rolled back into Saint Quentin after completing Paris-Brest-Paris on our fixed-gear bicycle. We had high hopes of posting entries from the course, hopes that were dashed on the rocks of rain, fatigue, and a stunning lack of internet access in the French countryside. We did take a lot of photos, however, which are available here. In case you're interested, you can also find photos of our PBP bicycle here (scroll down to see our green Quickbeam). The photo that appears with this posting is of us (Eric) sleeping on the floor at Carhaix on the return leg. We found the PBP poster laying around, and it worked perfectly to keep the cold breezes off while we snoozed. Total sleep for the 83 hours we rode was about three hours.
