Come join us on May 7 for the Brevet Week 400 km brevet. This ride is part unsupported series-in-a-week, which is a great way to claim all of your PBP qualifiers at once. We'll have cards and cue sheets at the start (please preregister so we know how much to print), but you're on your own for everything else. It's a true celebration of self-sufficient randonneuring!

Start at 06:00 from the Super 8 in Ellensburg (1500 Canyon Rd Ellensburg, WA). The Brevet Week 400k route will follow a similar route that was run as a brevet in 2005. This route starts over Old Blewett Pass and then take the Wenatchee River valley into Wenatchee. The route will then go east to Quincy and due south through Beverly, Mattawa and cross over the Columbia River at Vernita Bridge. The route will go west on SR 24 to Yakima, then up the Yakima Canyon and finish at the Super 8 in Ellensburg. The total climbing on the proposed 400k route is approximately 11,000 ft.

Route on RWGPS: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29167005 This route is not final and may change. The cuesheet will be completed following pre-ride, about 1 week before start of ride.

This will count as a 400km qualifying brevet for Paris-Brest-Paris.

Lights and reflective gear are required for this ride. At the start, have your front and rear lights on the bike and wear your reflective vest and ankle bands.

RUSA membership is not required, but is strongly recommended, especially if you are using this ACP 400K to qualify for Paris-Brest-Paris.
