We finished just after 7AM this morning after riding through the night.  I have never been so tired or so sore on a bike (or anywhere for that matter!).  Everyone made it, we hit every control as a group and even managed to generate a following along the route as the “Quatre Americans”.

France hasn’t been this cold or had this much rain in 50 years.  A guy we met who has ridden 7 PBP’s (finished 6) said that this was the hardest he had seen.  Go and get a six pack of beer and I will unfold the story over the  next few days as the sensation returns to my hands and I can type.

Chapeaux! I can’t imagine what it was like. Terrible and wonderful. Hope your sore bits recover quickly.
