"The 200K portion of the 600K may well be a route used a few years ago that goes to Lake Michigan and back. If that is the same route, it does have a bit of suburban riding, and perhaps some more challenging hills than on the regular 200K route. All…"

"Great news! The 600K route looks "new" as well --- as in the 200K bit isn't the same as the 200K brevet. These dates will also allow for completion of the series in time for PBP qualification. Thanks RBA Jim and everyone involved!"

"I'm a little disappointed in the route. It's almost all alphabet roads. There are so many amazing B roads in this area that are super fun.  Granted, the route as planned is still going to be great as-is. "
