There are iron butt, titianum butt and long range riders... and there are superman class...Drum roll... friends.. we have a superman in our midst.. His name is Heng Ooi Khiang. Recently he completed this epic ride and it must be some adventure.

Paris–Brest–Paris (PBP) was originally a 1200km bicycle race from Paris to Brest and back to Paris. It is one of the oldest bicycling events still regularly run (the oldest being the Catford CC hill climb). The last time it was run as a race was 1951.
In 1931 amateur cyclists were separated from professionals. There were two independent long distance bicycle tours. One is Brevet (also called randonnée), in which cyclists ride individually. The goal is to make it within 90 hours, but with no competition. This is held every four years. The other is an audax where cyclists ride in a group, held every five years. So in 1931 there were three independent cyclings events, sharing the same route.
The audax is organised by the Union des Audax Françaises, while the Brevet is organised by the Audax Club Parisien.
