The DC Randonneurs inaugural 1000km - Appalachian Adventure

The Appalachian Adventure 1000km has all that you would want - beautiful views, challenging route, quiet country roads - all wonderfully designed by our very own Crista Borras. Please make plans to join us for the ride starting September 5th.

Details about the event (qualification, registration, ride planning, etc) are shown here:

Please email me with any questions that this leaves unanswered!

Thanks,

Hey Nick,
I'm debating about it, but I'm thinking I might sign up. A lot of stuff in the summer is out of the question for me schedule-wise, so I appreciate that it's late in the year.
Maybe I'll even get in shape this year.

How would you say it compares to the other Appalachian 1000k? The time I did the Endless Mt's, I finished it seven hours faster with the same amount of sleep and more dallying at diners than the ADC, but it's hard to compare because I was also riding with more people, the weather was better, and I was in better shape.

Hi, Emily,

I've never ridden Matt's 1000km. In fact, most of what I know about it is from your ride reports :-) I have an approximate GPS file just based on the controls, but if you have a real GPS file with a track that you could email me then I could analyze that. But the approximate file looks like it has about 10,000 feet more climbing than the Appalachian Adventure.

And that's consistent with my impression that Matt's is harder. That's mainly based on a conversation with him a while back where he said that he could take a portion of it and make it an out-and-back that would qualify as one of Sophie's mega-climbing Super Randonneur 600's.

Anyway, if you're ever down here, come ride a brevet with us, or if the timing for that doesn't work, there are a boatload of permanents around here.

Nick
