Social Gathering Before/After



This is a return to a 300km Nick Bull designed out of Frederick.  It follows part of the first day of the Pigeon Hills 600.  The name of the brevet comes from the lovely Michaux State Forest.

Check in is currently TBD and will either be at the Home2 Suites, Dunkin Donuts, or Sheetz next to the hotel. Check in opens at 5 AM and will require a bicycle safety inspection requiring lights and reflective gear.

Leaving Frederick, the route heads north to Thurmont, climbs up MD550 and then picks up the Ye Olde Frederick 300km route through Fairfield and Arendtsville. In the Michaux State Forest, we forego the grinding climb over Big Flat for a slightly more mellow route through the woods in Pine Grove Furnace State Park. Once across South Mountain, the route heads past a Sheetz where riders should resupply, then up to an info control in Newville.  Turning south and west,  riders begin the reverse of the “Four States” 400km route. After a control in Mercersburg, riders continue due south through Williamsport to Sharpsburg and a control in Shepherdstown.  From there, they head back to Frederick, climbing over Gapland and MarLu on the way.
