Alex's Route Notes from the Preride
(Additional route notes from Gary Baker at the bottom of this page)
|Note: This is not the official route sheet. Ride organizers may make last minute changes because of road closures or other problems. The route sheet you receive at the start of the ride is the official one.|
From route coordinator Gary Baker, August 15, 2013: Keith Patterson has redesigned this route to incorporate suggestions from riders who did this ride last year. There are two major changes: 1) the start time has been moved forward to 6AM and 2) the ride going south to Whidbey island has been shortened by approximately 20km and distance added to the return portion of the route. These changes were made to give riders more daylight riding time at the south end of the Whidbey island portion of the route. Now riders will get to see those hills! NOTE: There will be NO staffed control at the recommended night control in Oak Harbour. Riders will have to book their own accommodation if they plan a sleep stop. last year the control was at the Auld Holland Inn at the north end of the city.
