Rider Preparation Resource Page

This section was used in 2003 and 2007 to help local BC riders with their PBP preparations, and to keep them informed on information coming from France. I'm leaving most of this stuff on line here as a way of archiving it. Beginning in 2011 much of information riders will be looking for will be on the PBP Web Site. Some of the info here will still be useful, including the location of our hotel. And don't miss the rider tips from Ron, Sheila and Gord. [Eric F - March 2015]
