I was thinking about doing their 600k this year and hoping they do the pine barrens route. But I might end up with DC or Eastern PA instead.

I think iTrod and I will do the Million Meters of Chocolate Milk 1000k
I heard that the NJ Randonneurs are going to do a "flat series" this spring, and the 'East Creek 600' will be pretty flat. I haven't seen the route, but it probably starts at Hightstown and the places listed (Browns Mills, Salem, Newfield, Ocean City, Eldora, Hammonton, Vincentown) are all in the southern part of the state. So it will definitely be flat.
