Advice for 1st time PBP Participants
Susan Otcenas wrote this document specifically for first time PBP participants: http://susanotcenas.blogspot.com/2014/11/pbp-tips-for-first-timer.html Susan's advice is geared primarily for what she refers to as 'back of the pack' riders, but the reality is that anyone can experience some of the same things she mentions. Also, this posting from her is advice for you 'on the ground', basically once your start wave has left.
PBP Tips from Eric Norris: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCccfA4NuyWU3-YaUf9LkNwA Eric has created a series of Youtube videos that discuss some of the basic concepts surrounding deciding to do PBP and preparing for it logistically. Sample topics are: "Is it worth it?", "How tough is it?", "Time", and "Choosing a start time". There are now 8 videos so far and more videos planned by Eric.
