On netflix here they have a French series called "A very secret service" ("Au service de la France" in French). There is one episode where they make fun of the way some Quebec separatists talk. Of...

I'm studying French right now. I was really unhappy with myself for not studying more before 2019. There is a plugin so you can get youtube and netflix captioning in French (and English...

Not to be too slanderous against French randonneurs, but I think their attitude towards rules is somewhat flexible. I guess I looked French, in Villaines there was a guy that invited me to take the...

I was in the first 90h group. I think I did pretty well at staying ahead of the bulk of the bulge until Loudeac. It was nice to just walk up to the sausage stand in Mortagne and get my order right...

The advantage of the 90 hour start, which I didn't fully appreciate until 2019, is that the wind dies down when the sun goes down. I started in the first 90 hour group and it was brutal, between the...

Sure would be nice to sleep somewhere other than Loudeac, but by the time I get there I'm ready for a shower and a nap.

I was hoping to make it to St Nick on the way out and someone almost talked...

I don't know anyone that would do it that wouldn't have problems navigating rural Brittany in a camper. If they missed a control, then I would worry until I heard from them. It was bad enough...

Villaines would be a nice place to sleep on the way back

Probably hadn't turned the hot water heater on in time for good hot water supply for riders on the way out.

In 2019, I got to carhaix at just the right time and got a shower and cot right away. Huge line for food, so I waited to eat until after I slept. The worst waste of time was the bathrooms, but...

84 hour group doesn't have lines until they catch up with the 90 hour group, but by then the crowd has thinned out quite a bit. I probably will try the 84 hour start. After the 1200k's I've done...

I didn't find a bathroom the whole ride where the floor was dry enough to change shorts without gymnastics, particularly at loudiac. I guess that's why people get hotel rooms. There is a school of...

I can't see doing it without a drop bag at Loudiac. Well, I can, but it would be unpleasant. The spirit of PBP includes local clubs renting campers so their riders can avoid the dorms and...
