Route Description


RUSA Route #2740 "2021 Brevet Week 600K Chuckacamano Middle Fork"

This route is based on RUSA Route #2432 "Chuckamano Fork of Diamonds", also held in Brevet Week 2022. This route uses almost entirely the same route as the Brevet Week 400K. The ride starts by going north on familiar roads to Snohomish and Marysville. The climb up to Lake Ki will definitely break up the pack! Keep a close eye up at Lake Ki as there are some easy-to-miss turns that could lead you off-course and down the wrong downhill!

After Stanwood, the route makes a loop on Camano Island that is stacked full of steep hills. Watch out for the INFO control at Utsalady Point Vista Park. The Elger Bay Grocery is another control on the island, and then you will go north back to Stanwood. The route does not take the southern portion of Camano Island as in other brevets. When returning back in Standwood the route goes north to Conway, Edison and Chuckanut Drive. If you are into a gravel path, the RWGPS follows the Interurban Trail, which has a tricky steep gravel downhill. Or if you choose, you can stay on Chuckanut Drive.

Immediately after the Fairhaven control, the route climbs steeply (max 10% grade) up Old Fairhaven Rd that gains about 600 ft in 3.5 miles. The route follows beautiful roads along Lake Whatcom. Rhe route heads south on SR9 to Sedro Woolley and Lake McMurray, and follows the Centennial Trail back to Snohomish. After the Broadway climb, the route winds its way to Woodinville-Duvall Rd, drops down to Woodinville, then follows the Sammamish River Trail back to Redmond.

After the overnight control, the route then goes over Union-Novelty Hill to Carnation, then takes the Snoqualmie Valley trail to North Bend. The climb up Middle Fork is about 15.5 miles (one way) and about 1000 feet of elevation gain to the end of pavement, so plan on stocking up water and food at North Bend. The route returns through Fall-city via Hwy 202; watch for broken pavement after Snoqualmie Falls at an unmarked hairpin turn descent and at the following well-marked hairpin. Get your information control answer at the Fall City Chevron before the climb up Duthie Hill into the Issaquah Highland. Stay on the side-walk trail path to continue on the descent into Issaquah. If you accidentally descend on the roadway, you will need to merge over because the right lane is an entrance to the I-90 freeway. Be careful of the potholes when changing to the left inside lane. The route then head south to Black Diamond, then north on the Wilderness/Green River and Cedar River Trails back to Renton. Finally, the route heads north through Bellevue and finishes in Redmond.

Bill Dussler's Pre-Ride Notes


See above for the route description. The weather for 6/3 looks about the same as my 400K preride on 5/27 - lower 50s in the morning, sunny and upper 60s / low 70s in the afternoon. Light winds out of the south should make for easy pedaling through the Skagit flats up to Bellingham.

I stopped 3 times to refuel. Elger Bay Food Mart and Cafe (130K) for sandwiches / burgers. In Fairhaven (218K), there is a Subway just before the route passes under I-5 which is open until 7. The 76 station in Conway (300K) has a couple tables inside.

I got on to the Centennial Trail just as darkness fell. Keep an eye out for the bollards on the trail, which all had reflective tape.

If it's clear as forecast, riders will enjoy a full moon at night. You may also notice Venus in the western sky.

Parking


There is some street parking on the south side of NE 65th. If you're not staying at one of the local hotels, choose your parking location thoughtfully.

Food


There are many food options on the route. On the return, there are a 24hr c-stores in Conway, Arlington, and Woodinville.

Finish


Redmond Inn
17601 Redmond Way
Redmond, WA

Overnight Accommodations


This ride is lightly supported. Riders must make their own overnight accommodations. The Redmond Inn is the ride's official start/overnight/finish control, so it's the logical place to stay. Hampton Inn & Suites is less than a mile away if you seek an alternative.
