New Members - August 2011

DBC welcomes its new members!

DBC has an official cartographer

If you haven't stumbled across it already, there's now a Route Maps section on the DBC website.

It's time for the 2011 PBP!

Where will you be during the fourth week of August, Paris perhaps? Maybe not, for most of us, but for several of the DBC’s intrepid ultra-distance riders this is the year to journey to Paris. Every four years the famous PBP draws thousands of riders to the starting line just west of Paris for a 90 hour bike ride out to the Normandy city of Brest and return, hence PBP. The journey, an out-and-back route of 750 miles, or 1200Km, is labeled by the French as a randonnée.

Get ready - it's the midnight century

NCNCA District Team Time Trial Championships – Mens 45+ Ken Hill (author), Mike Pugh, Scott Wienker, Chris Bowlus July 9, 2011 Livermore, CA

I knew the out leg was going to be fast, some downhill and a tail-cross wind, but I had no idea it was going to be this fast, or this crazy. 44…47...49…51 and finally, 53mph…on a TT bike . . .in a cross wind. Were my teammates still behind me? I dare not look back, as to not upset the precious little stability I had.
