Event Date: 2017-09-23
This route is part of our kinder, gentler “Kittens and Puppies” brevet series; a set of 100K, 200K, 300K, and 400K out-and-back routes starting in Pittsburgh, PA and heading towards Akron, Ohio. While certainly not flat, we’ve endeavored to minimize the elevation gain and navigational challenges, in order to provide events more attractive to novice randonneurs.
We’ll make our way along the Ohio and Beaver Rivers through Koppel (with a stop at Al’s Corner). We’ll head west to our next stop at the Sheetz in Youngtown, OH; then continue west to our turnaround point at the Subway in Hartville, OH. Then, we’ll retrace our steps, stopping again at the Youngtown Sheetz and Al’s Corner on the way back to Pittsburgh.
Registration begins: 4:30 AM; Rider meeting: 4:50 AM; Ride start: 5:00 AM (20:00 time limit)
