Congratulations to Peter on another amazing ride.

The Paris-Brest-Paris event is the oldest in the cycling calendar having first taken place in 1891 when it was a professional race. Nowadays 1200 km is a bit too far for the professionals and the event has become a randonnée in which amateurs ride against a fixed time limit. It takes place every four years.

Herts Wheeler Peter Walton completed the event this year for the second time. He finished in 85h 27m 47s, an overall average speed (including food and rest stops) of 14.22 km/h. This was comfortably within the 90 hour limit.
