this is a postcard image from Brittany where the Paris-Brest-Paris (the PBP) cycling challenge is being held. These women are knitting while waiting for their husbands to return to the Crozon Peninsula, just south of Brest. I wonder when this ancient image was actually taken. And it looks like a posed shot for the tourists of way back when. Maybe as long ago as when Charly Miller did his record setting ride of the PBP in 1901.
There are several new members now of the Charly Miller Club. The target was 56 hours 40 minutes. A group of 7 members of the Seattle Randonneurs clocked in just under the wire with an hour to spare. News from son James who was part of that group is that they just kept going for the whole 1230 kilometers, with scarcely 15 minutes to get off their bikes at the various control spots.
