  1. . One of my Club members is considering the Paris-Brest-Paris this year. I have not confirmed this
    with him yet - he doesn't akshully know I'm even toying with the idea - but were I to go along as
    "support" -

    1 - What ought I to foresee being my role?

    2 - Best route to/from the start/finish?

    3 - Best tariffs on ferries/trains?

    (Ok, I can search the net for 2 & 3 but someone might have good personal knowledge.)

    Thanx.

    Yooors,

    Iain.

    Tell him before he enters - he has to list his support vehicle(s) on the entry form. Support
    vehicles get a different route to follow between controls than the riders, are not allowed on the
    rider's route, and are only allowed to contact the riders at controls (within a mile or so).
    Breach of regulations attracts time penalties to the rider. There are motorcycle marshals checking
    up on things

    Role: feeding (avoids queues at canteens) carrying and providing changes of clothing, waterproofs,
    on-bike food, light batteries, spares etc providing somewhere to kip moral support - "don't think
    you're getting a lift off me if you pack - there's no room!" rescue in case of failure
