5 Borough Bicycle Club General Meeting
5BBC members Ken Coughlin and Brian Hoberman will warm up the evening with a travelogue and photo album from their trip to Sweden and Denmark this past summer. They will provide practical information on self-contained bicycle touring, shipping bikes by air, and rail transportation in a foreign land. 5BBC hopes to serve authentic Scandinavian refreshments.
The group will also hear from Laurent Chambard, NJ/NYC regional brevet administrator for Randonneurs USA. Laurent will discuss randonneuring (long distance cycling with specific time limits) and will present his 2007 calendar of 200, 300, 400 and 600 kilometer brevets for cyclists who can qualify for the famous Paris Brest Paris 1200k ride in France.
