so my first 400k is coming up this saturday, and it just so happens that it's the local "three-pass 400k"!! that means that in addition to covering 400km of ground, we're also going over three local passes!
for the locals, we're doing snoqualmie pass, blewett pass, and stevens pass! the elevation profile looks like this, with blewett the high-point at ~4,200 feet (~1200 m):
ouch. should be fun. i've done a 4,500 foot climb before, but that was only a 115-mile day..
so anyone else do brevets up & over mountains? i can't wait to tell my war-stories from this ride, and i'm intersted to hear others' stories about brevets in the mountains as well. do tell!
