Paris Brest Paris - 1975 (#8)
In 1975 the interval between the randonneur PBPs moved from five years to four. Participation more than doubled, making this PBP bigger that 1951 and the biggest to date. Thanks to Alain Collongues for sending scans of the entire 1975 plaquette in 2011. Thanks also to Jean Pierre Gagneur who in 2006 sent scans of the 1975 cover and other photos that occupied this page for several years. [Eric F - February 2011]
