I rode 768 miles straight from Paris to Brest and back to Brest. The first night was easy but the second night was cold.
That's kind of impressive! Good on you. Btw, did you actually mean "from Brest to Paris and back to Brest again"? Otherwise, it makes no sense.
Sorry, my brain was scrambled after a long ride. It should have read Paris to Brest and back to Paris (PBP). Lots of riders have done these 1200Km "Grand Randonnees" but usually they stop and sleep a few times. I did it nonstop excepting getting my control card stamped..
Hmmm! I can't remember but I think it must be when I ride with my girlfriend because I feel much energy when she is with me.We just talk a lot and keep cycling to be fit.
Keep cycling and be fit.
Sorry what? You rode 1200KM without stopping? Is that even physically possible?
Either way I think we all need to realise just what our limits are when undergoing long rides such as this, and while we might want to be able to cover certain distances, sometimes we have to air on the side of caution and accept the fact that our bodies can't handle it, and that's especially the case as we get older.
