Paris – Brest – Paris (PBP)
The next Paris-Brest-Paris (PBP) is due to take place in August 2019. This 1200km randoneé can trace its roots back to 1891, almost as old as the bicycle itself. It takes place every four years and has the largest number of riders of any audax event. More on the history here.
Qualification details will not be released until closer to 2019 but it is usual for riders to have to ride a 200km, 300km, 400km and 600km BRM calendar event during the qualifying period. In the UK our qualifying period normally runs from 1st Jan to late June in the same year as PBP (the different distances have different qualifying periods as well). Keep your eye on the AUK website nearer the time for more details.
The plain and Deux fois badges are 87mm in diameter, trois fois to huit fois are 105mm diameter. You can check your entitlement here
