I would like to present here some results for the brevet 340 K.

It is mountain one. Altogether are 11 mountain passes. It has place at 22 June 2008, start in Uzhhorod at 4:00 AM, finish in Uzhhorod at ~20:30 PM.

Start point of the brevet 340 K. Two participants ready to go, Uzhhorod, railway station, next to clock, 4:00 AM



Here is a map, the brevet route in yellow, Uzhhorod-Synevir lake-Uzhhorod, 170+170 K

Nice pictures. I'm impressed your partner was able to ride that far that fast on a single speed mountain bike. Interesting to see how it is done in other parts of the world.

Excellent pix. Interesting overlay of the elevation profile and rider's heart rate data. I really like that idea.
Cool to see someone else doing distance on a singlespeed. (I'm working my way up to longer distances.) I just started seriously riding singlespeed this year, and so far I'm only up to about 40 miles. Seeing someone doing a 340K is just more incentive to keep going.
