Please ensure that you dress appropriately for the weather conditions and have sufficient supplies and extra funds if needed for anything that may arise while en route on brevets!

This is an ACP Brevet. The total time allowed from start to finish is 13.5 hours for the 200k and 20 hours for the 300k and 27 hours for the 400k. and 40 hours for the 600k.
