Excellent photos which capture the atmosphere of PBP, good to see Andy C indulging in a bit of post ride rehydration!

Lightweights! If you look carefully, one of those cans is Coke, and another appears to be Orange Juice. What is the world coming to?

Well done LBR and all.  Really atmospheric pictures.  I don't know many of those involved but I loved the one of AndyC and Bob Johnson with the world's smallest pizzas and Andy C with the odd can.....

There's a few of mine here http://www.flickr.com/photos/marcusjb/sets/72157627528564234/

I regret taking so few - but those that I took will bring back happy memories for years to come.
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

These are mine. Once I took out the crap photos there wasn't many left so here are the ones mainly of the riders I cycled with at different stages.

I was pleased with my time having planned to get round in 72hrs. I think I was a bit lucky to miss the worst of the heavy rain on Monday night when I managed 3hrs sleep in the hall at Carhaix :smug:

I was  pleased with my 82 hours 21mins, especially after being too slow in the rain 4 years ago. My chosen time limit was 90 hours.

My ride plan was to ride as fast as possible to Brest, and enjoy more stops (controls and roadside food and coffee, etc,) on the way back.
I rode about half the route with riders I knew, so that was good.

Have only had time to view Rich's (excellent) shots so far, but hope to view more soon.

where can I find the photos that the Professional photographers were selling at the end?

I assume there are online options to buy them

I think picture 32 is Abraham Cohen from Israel, residing in London ? Top cyclist. Love that rear wheel :)

Don't call them pro's. Shit quality. If you comment their overuse of flashes they just mumble that they can't easily switch them off. And obviously they made no testshots of their locations, sky completely blown out. In 2007 I refused to buy them due to the quality, same this time.

I took very very few photos owing to having no camera with me, a mobile phone battery to preserve and being a bit too slow to stop for such frivolity very often. But here they are!

A set of images from me and Mark Green at the start. Most of the shots are of auks waiting to start, either on the road or round the football pitch, queueing under 30 deg heat. There is also a sequence of shots as the Vedettes start off, with quite a few auks featured among the thousand or so who took off at high speed to the sound of cheers and a loud presentation from the commentator.

These are the first of about 3,000 shots taken over four days and are low resolution just for the web. High resolution colour-corrected versions can be obtained from me for a small fee to help cover my car hire, petrol and B&B.

I'll be adding more images as I work my way through processing them. Next set will be from Ambrieres on the way out on the first morning.

some of these are of dubious quality due to a misty lens,

Good evening!

Here are a few my wife made at the start/finish:

These are from the inscription on Saturday to the Monday morning start and form the final 90h finish on Thursday around noon. Sorted by date.
