Over the past few weeks, we've been hearing from more and more customers that are excited about their upcoming trips to PBP. I know of two new VO Rando frames that will be rambling around the French countryside this year, and maybe there will be more. This year we've also chatted with a couple folks looking for new handlebar bags for the ride.
Are any blog readers heading to France next month? What are your goals for the ride? What kind of bike will carry you across the finish line? Would you care to share your bike number with us so that we can watch your progress on the PBP website?

I'd like to take the chance to wish a public "Bonne Route" to folks from our local club who are headed to Paris, and to some of our dealers who are taking time off to join the ride.
After the spring brevet season slowed down, most people around here who plan to head to PBP transitioned into a different kind of training.
I've joined these folks for some short weekend tours - getting up early, riding hard, eating well, and having a few laughs is the best "training" I can imagine.
Riding PBP is not an easy task, but all of these folks are ready!
