Brevets are generally not races and there is no prize money, so please be polite to all volunteers, fellow riders and convenience store attendants. Helping a fellow rider to finish is allowed and should make you feel better.

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 and 75 hours for the 1000k. Riders must follow and complete the approved route. This route goes through several small towns in central North Carolina traveling along mostly low traffic roads. There may be some sections where traffic is high, so please ride carefully and safely at all times. The intermediate controls are where stores allow you to refuel with some basic supplies. There are also some other stores along the route where you may be able to stop and get limited nutritional supplies.
