E-mail

The 400k is also the final section of the 1000k, which will loop through the foothills of central Lewis and Cowlitz Counites by going south through Centralia, Chehalis and Kelso.

 

Hey all you K-Hounds, are you interested in doing an entire series in a week? How about a 1000K followed up with a 400K and 200K? Well... the Olympia Brevet Week is your ticket! This year's series offers a number of fantastic, previously-run Brevets in the Olympia area. The 600k follows the first part of Olympia St Helens 1000K and the 400K follows the last part of the 1000k. The 200k and 300k are also previously-run Brevets by Paul Johnson in 2011. All Brevets start and finish in Tumwater, however the overnight for the 600k and 1000k is in Port Angeles so be ready to be self-sufficient!

 

Note: all of the brevets are self-supported. We will send you off with your control card, the rest is up to you!

Ride Summary:

Brevet Week 400K

The 400k is also the final section of the 1000k, which will loop through the foothills of central Lewis and Cowlitz Counites by going south through Centralia, Chehalis and Kelso. After going through Castlerock, Toutle and Toledo, the 400k route will take the back roads up the Cowlitz River Valley, passing by Cinnabar, Morton, and turn around in the metropolis of Glenoma (DON'T WINK OR YOU MIGHT MISS IT!!). After returning to Morton, the route will then climb approximately 800 feet (to elev. 1700 feet above sea level) up Hwy 7 over to Elbe. The route will then go through Eatonville, then north to Kapowsin, and take back roads to Roy. The route will then go through Yelm and Rainier and then the most direct way back to the La Quinta Inn in Tumwater. The total cumulative elevation gain of the 400k is about 8,000 feet.
