Once more, with feeling this time.
This route was originally the 2021 Solistice 1000K, scheduled for June, near the Summer Solstice. As one does. That ride was cancelled due to a record-setting heat wave.
We rescheduled for August. The (now misnamed) Solistice 1000K was again cancelled, this time due to forest fires and widespread smoke.
So here we are, September 2022, and we'll make another go at it. Notes from the original event:
This a brand new route and should entail some great adventuring. We have traveled most of these roads on other Brevets and Permanents, but there are a few twists and turns to keep you entertained. The route consists of 3 loops all starting and finishing at the Tumwater La Quinta Inn
. While that will make it easy to clean up and grab some sleep for each loop, it will also provide an easy temptation to abandon. There are portions of the ride that will require more than the usual rando self-sufficiency. Make sure you check your yearning for sleep and civilization at the door so you can successfully finish the entire adventure!
All riders are responsible for making their own hotel accommodations. As of 08/02/2022 the Tumwater La Quinta Inn still has rooms available for the event dates. If you are planning to ride this event you should make hotel reservations ASAP.
