Bicycle for Life

Brevets July 23 2016
300k or 200k

Planned Start will be July 23rd 2016
05:00 Saturday morning

The start should get you into the mountain before it gets hot or traffic is too busy, so all riders need lights!!!

The routes are somewhat challenging routes in places due to the terrain, but not such that most reasonably fit randonneurs would not be able to finish on time. Some of you may want a triple or low gear compact crank. You will need to watch your stop times and site seeing times, so consider planning to keep a steady effort on the easier sections which you have a good bit of in different sections of the routes and there are quite a few long down hills too. Please save some energy for the hills and long rollers.

Brevets are generally not races for which 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!

These are ACP Brevet routes .

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, que sheets and maps are for general reference. Offical routes will be provided at the event start for registered participants. Anoter map version is available by clicking on either map.
