North Cascades 600K - 9/11 & 9/12


Results are Posted

The Fall 600K will again push riders up into the high mountains for what should be a gorgeous view of the North Cascades.

Pre ride report - look at the pictures!! You've got to do this ride!!


Riders will start in Arlington and follow back roads through Granite Falls, past Lake Roesiger and down to Sultan. Then they will pick up Highway 2 up and over Stevens Pass for a quick stop in "old-timey" Leavenworth (home of old-timey Starbucks). Highway 97 takes the riders north through Entiat and Pateros before arriving at the overnight in Winthrop (Mt. Gardener Inn - http://www.mtgardnerinn.com ).

Everyone can get up bright and early to take on Highway 20 and Washington Pass. After the slight bump in the road called Rainy Pass, it is almost downhill the entire way back to Arlington.

At the finish, make sure to let the 200K riders know that you feel great and they should have signed up for the 600 instead.
