McConnells Mills 200K

June 30 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm EDT

$10.00

(Since your RBA didn’t have a chance to ride it last time, we’re going to offer the McConnell’s Mills 200K again.)

The McConnell’s Mills 200K route has undergone a bit of revision since its inception: one of the controles (the Creighton Sheetz) no longer exists, and the final leg of the route passes through an area that has become quite trafficky and unpleasant later in the day.
So, we’ve moved the start to North Park, allowing us to get through the Glenshaw area early in the day (as well as to stop using RBA Emeritus Jim’s house as the start and finish controle).
Once escaping the city, we follow the Allegheny River upstream as far as Tarentum, before heading north through Butler on the way to West Sunbury. There, the traditional country market stop is now more, and has been sadly replaced with a photo control. Then we strike out westward through Liberty to Portersville and skirting McConnell’s Mill State Park. In Ellwood City, we make our first formal Sheetz stop of the day, before heading back to North Park via Brush Creek and Cranberry.

Route notes:

  • When crossing Bull Creek onto Thompson, you may see Road Closed signs ahead. The turn for Sun Mine Rd is before the closure, so don’t worry about them.
  • While there are plenty of supply options as far as Butler (around mile 50), there is little available on route until 45 miles later in Ellwood City. If you find yourself caught short, there are truck stops on 422 15 miles earlier, just off route(stay straight on Curry Rd at mile 80.5 instead of turning R on Fisher Rd)

Registration closes: Friday June 28th
Inspection opens: Sunday June 30th 6:30 AM
Ride start: Sunday June 30th 7:00 AM (13:30 time limit)

Requirements: current RUSA membership, signed waiver

EPoP: Due to abject laziness on the part of your humble RBA, we default to electronic proof of passage (e.g Strava or other GPS track) in the Pittsburgh region brevets. That said, if you prefer olde-schoole printed paperwork such as cue sheets or brevet cards, I’m happy to provide them…just let me know at least three days in advance of the event, so that I have time to prepare and print.
