Journeys : Oct Nov 2011
In Tasmania today Micro-sleeps on a hard leather saddle Scott Dickson reports on the epic ride of three Tasmanian cyclists who took the challenge of riding the long-distance Paris-Brest-Paris endurance event, celebrating the 80th anniversary of Australian Hubert ‘Oppy’ Oppenheimer’s win in the 1931 race. Adding to an already daunting challenge, Scott, Gavin Hinds and Craig Hoey chose to ride genuine 1930s bicycles that they had scrounged, salvaged and rebuilt – there were no carbon- fibre frames or multi-geared racing machines in Oppy’s day! 54 October / November 2011
