Kittens & Puppies 300K

Event Date: 2014-04-19

Distance: 300 km
Starts at: Neville Island, at 05:00

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.

Following the pattern set by our 200K, 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.

The 300K starts at the Neville Island Park-n-Ride on Grand Ave, immediately under the I-79 bridge and next to the Kings Hometown Grill and Fairfield Inn & Suites.

Registration begins: 4:30 AM; Rider meeting: 4:50 AM; Ride start: 5:00 AM (20:00 time limit)
