The 3M 600K

May 20, 2023 @ 6:00 am - May 21, 2023 @ 10:00 pm


New route for 2023! What are the 3 M’s in the moniker? Some of the towns you’ll pass through enroute to completing a successful 600K: Monticello, Maquoketa and Mechanicsville.

This new 600K route combines two routes we’ve used in the past: the Meander to Manchester 400K and the Eldridge West 200K with changes needed to make the distance work for a 600K. The first day is somewhat shorter than the “first day 400K” standard and the second day is longer as a result.

The first day is identical to the 400K route for the first 60 or so miles so 400K/600K riders can roll out together and have company for a while.

Here are the details:

Day one: 221.1 miles, 8,715 feet of climbing, ridewithgps route here
Day two: 161 miles, 5,577 feet of climbing, ridewithgps route here
Brevet card here
