VILLAINES-LA-JUHEL


Villaines-la-Juhel will again be a control on Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur, as it has been since 1979.

Villaines-la-Juhel is pleased to welcome the participants in the 18th PBP Randonneur in August 2015. We thank the Audax Club Parisien for trusting us since 1979 by including us in the most famous long-distance event. Its an honor ! Villaines-la-Juhel, located northeast of the department of Mayenne, at the heart of the Haut Maine et Pail, is a gate to the regional nature park of Normandie-Maine. Our town belongs to a strong community of 27 townships. On the mythical PBP, we are at km 225 on your way out, and at km 1000 on your way back. You are riding through the Mayenne during more than 80 km. You enter the department at Averton (which has a mountain bike training camp) and you leave it after Saint-Ellierdu- Maine. Moors, forests and ridges alternate harmoniously all along quiet shaded roads lined with mansions, castles, chapels and mills. After the official control in Villaines-la-Juhel, winding roads bring you in the mountain : the surprisingly arid hills of Hardanges. Then you cross charming towns nestled in the wooded countryside of the Bocage Mayennais : Lassay-les-Chteaux, Ambrires-les-Valles and Gorron. All along the route, day and night, the people of Mayenne, in awe of this fantastic challenge, are present to encourage, cheer and support the riders.

The venue remains unchanged from the previous Paris-Brest-Paris. We will give better opportunities for campers to park near the site and improve the sleeping conditions for the riders.
As on the previous editions, we are supported by the City Council of Villaines-la-Juhel, the Township Community of Mont des Avaloirs, the Council of the department of Mayenne, the Tourist Office of Mont des Avaloirs, Mayenne Tourisme and the Committee for Cyclotourism in Mayenne. Our teams of volunteers (medical unit, local associations and School Saint Nicolas) will do their best to cater for the participants and those accompanying.

The Cyclotourists from the Tourist Office of Villaines, the City Council of Villaines-la-Juhel, the Township Community of Mont des Avaloirs and the Department of Mayenne welcome the Paris-Brest-Paris Randonneur 2015 and the participants from the five continents. on behalf of the team at Villaines la Juhel
