It's finally here! It's Paris-Brest-Paris week and on Sunday the 18th of August 13 Scott Orwell Wheelers will line up in Paris to start the 1,250km challenge that they have been working towards for the past 2 years. This is the first of a two part look at the who is taking on the challenge and why! Andrew Potts put some questions to the group - the first 6 answer here...

In the build up to PBP, which starts next weekend, we asked the Scott Orwell Wheeler Participants to tell us a little about themselves and their road to Paris. Our hard working Leisure Rep, Leonard Kaye, who does everything 110% is up first......

Step 1: Do one 400 Brevet In 2018 which will almost guarantee a pre-registration place,

Step 2: Complete a series of Brevet’s in the first 6 months of 2019, a 200, 300, 400 and 600 and you get a start place.

It's easy you only need to ride 1900 kilometres in 18 months and you are on the start line.

The Eoin McLove crosses Ireland - you leave Whitehall, head to Lucan and use secondary roads to Athy, on to Templemore, Nenagh, Portumna, Drumshanbo, Belturbut, Ballybay, Virginia, Kells, Kilmessin and back to the car park in Whitehall. Seriously you would not drive it! So, 40 odd people, ten from Orwell set off in good spirits on a nice enough morning.
