Event Date: 2013-06-29
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.
A few flat miles along the Ohio give us a chance to warm up our legs before the ever-popular climb up Stoops Ferry. We’ll follow the Ohio as far north as Monaca, then follow the mighty Beaver River to our turnaround point, the 7-11 in Ellwood City. From there, we retrace our steps back to the start.
Registration begins: 8:15 AM; Rider meeting: 8:50 AM; Ride start: 9:00 AM (8:40 time limit)
