Message from Tracy, April 23, 2009:
I would like to submit the included route for consideration to hopefully be used in this years Summer Solstice 1000K. The route begins in Whistler BC with the first leg a 400k that includes the Duffy Lake Road as we would then meander from Lillooet through Lytton and down to Hope, Chilliwack and finally Abbotsford (where a bed in the Best Western on Sumas Way would be waiting). Next Leg (300K) takes us across the border to Maple Falls for breakfast then down to Sedro-Woolley, east to Rockport then through Darrington, Arlington and Snohomish along the shores of Lake Washington before ending at the Space Needle in Seattle (and another sleep in a Best Western drop bags would be couriered). The last leg goes up and along Green Lake and Everett before travelling to the Mukilteo Clinton Ferry (link) to Ferry schedule 20 minute crossing with Ferries every 30 minutes from 0505AM to 0105 AM) and touring along Whidbey Island, across Desolation Pass and then on towards Bellingham via Chuckanut Drive. The route follows the water including Birch Bay before crossing into Canada. The ride finishes at 41st and Granville at a 24 hr Shell Station. Most of the controls are 24 hour stops with a few exceptions.
The total elevation for the brevet would be (according to Bikely) 5422 m.
We could probably arrange for car pooling to Whistler and share accommodation the night before if need be.
