2007 Paris Brest Paris Photography

In August of 2007, Gregg Bleakney, along with motorcycle driver Stephan Schier, set out from Seattle to photograph the Paris-Brest-Paris ultra-endurance bicycle randonee. Documenting the ride from the seat of a motorcycle was an adventure in itself but in no way compared to what these cyclists experienced as friendly locals cheered them along the 1,200 KM route through the wind, rain and cold weather that plagued this year’s event.

Greeting Cards Now Available & Free Shipping On All PBP Prints

Imagekind.com is offering free shipping on all prints until September 4th. This is a really great deal, especially if you want to order matted and framed prints or greeting cards.

I've been using this service for nearly 1-year now for all of my fine art print sales and the customer feedback has been strong so far so I expect the greeting card feature to be no different.

The ultimate PBP bike computer or just another toy?

A bike computer, GPS, rear-view video, heart rate...and more. It might keep you occupied during the lonesome stretches of the 2011 PBP--or at least they might have a few of the pre-production bugs worked out by then!

Check out the specs at the product page here and Wired Magazine's review here.

PBP article in the The News & Observer

This was published last September but I read it for the first time this weekend. They used some photos from this site for the article but they are not online. It's a nice article about the PBP!

Cycling Plus UK - January article with photos about PBP

Some photos from this web site found a home in the largest bicycling magazine in the UK, Cycling Plus. The pics will be used for a feature article by writer Isabel Best (who completed the event) in the January issue. Isabel writes for mainly British national newspapers and magazines such as the Financial Times, the Independent on Sunday, The Observer, Elle, Monocle/Wallpaper, Procycling and Blast.

If you're interested, live in the US and wanna pick up a copy - I think that the issue can be found somewhere in the never-ending aisles of magazines at Barnes and Noble.
