Come join us on May 10 for the Brevet Week 600 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—including overnight accommodations. 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 600k route will start off by going down the Yakima Canyon. At Selah, the route will go on back roads to Naches and then take US 12 up to Rimrock Reservor. The route will follow Tieten Reservoir Road around Clear Lake and Rimrock Reservoir. After returning to Naches, the route will go up to the town of Tieton then go south over to Tampico and take the North Fork Ahtanum River valley to the end of pavement. The route will then go straight back to Fruitvale/Yakima and then back up the Yakima Canyon. Overnight will be at the Super 8 motel at approximately 352 km mark. After the overnight control, the route will then go northeast to Thorp and over Elk Heights and into Cle Elum. The route will then go past Cle Elum Reservor to Salmon La Sac campground (end of paved road) and then return back to the town of Cle Elum. The route will go east on back roads and take the North Fork Teanaway to the end of paved forest service road, return back down the Teanaway Valley to SR-970 and north on US 97 to Liberty Cafe. Then back south on US 97 over windmill hill and loop through the eastern Kittitas Valley before finishing at the Super 8 in Ellensburg. The total climbing on the proposed 600k route is approximately 15,000 ft.
