Drop Bags

For those that are doing the 600k a small individual drop bag may be used and can be taken to the one of the hotels listed above along the course and will be left at the front desk. The drop bags will be taken to the official overnight hotel for you and picked up to bring back to the finish sometime Sunday.

Please do not put anything in your drop bag that you cannot do without for a few days just in case we miss you or don't get them to you at the finish for some reason. If you do not wait at the finish for your drop bags, they can be shipped to you at your expense, BFL will not pay for shipping of items to you.

We will not be responsible for your drop bags or items in your drop bags.

There is no official SAG on any of these Brevets.

If you have not completed the brevet by Sunset you must have RUSA approved lights and reflective gear on and operational from Sunset to Sunrise or you will receive a DNF for the brevet.

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.

These are basic route maps. Please note that all online images, cue sheets and maps are for general reference. Offical routes will be provided at the event start for registered participants. Another map version may be available by clicking on either map.
