CUE SHEET | ENTRY FORM | BIKE REG


Thank you for your interest in the Saratoga 300 KM Brevet. This ride is part of the SARATOGA BREVET SERIES and is sanctioned by AUDAX CLUB PARISIEN and RANDONNEURS USA. We will follow their RULES & REGULATIONS.

We will be using an out and back to Elizabethtown, which is a neat little Adirondack village and the county seat for Essex County, which comprises the heart of the High Peaks region. If conditions allow, we'll return via the Warren County Bike Trail.

Lights and reflective gear will be required and most riders will only have about two hours of night riding, but if you take the full time limit, you can have up to 10 hours. Since the night portion will most likely be minimal and comes at the start, this is a great ride to use as an introduction to night riding and/or to make sure your lighting system is adequate for our longer rides. Also, be sure to dress according to the conditions. Riding in the Adirondacks this time of the year can be challenging, especially on longer rides that may see a full spectrum of weather conditions. To help you prepare, we've created a rider checklist.

This ride will be unsupported on the road, but we'll have snacks, pocket food and drinks at the start, along with gels, drinks and bars to take along with us. At the finish riders will be treated to pizza or pasta.We'll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale at the start and finish, in case you've forgotten anything or need something.

This ride will start from the regional brevet manager's home at: 7 PEARL STREET, Schuylerville, NY.  This is a residential neighborhood, so please be courteous when arriving and departing and make sure not to block a neighbor's driveway or the street when parking.
