Others may have a different opinion.
Andreas Herrmann :
Having finished PBP twice and LEL this year, my conclusions are quite different.
Compared to LEL I found PBP to be a walk in the park. Especially these things made it much harder for me:
- quality of the “roads” in Britain
- hefty climbs
- 4 nights instead of 2
PBP is more of a worldwide meeting of cycling enthusiasts (I feel like being part of a national team) and for a lot of people finishing time is of importance – me against the clock.
LEL is just one big adventure – me against nature
