The June 3 600km Brevet will be the classic Cache Creek 600. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18864034

Preride-report Hot, bloody hot. Added a third water bottle for the ride.

I'm guessing HWY 1 was a major inspiration for this years pin design ????

The Good, Traffic was pretty light and quite considerate, almost always passing wide on HWY 1. Two peace signs, a handful of waves and some happy honks from drivers on our way up to Cache Creek.

Hope River General store (124km opens 8:30am) has a nice little deli with fresh made to order sandwiches.

The Inn at Spences Bridge has new mattresses and linen in all the rooms. Our dinner and sandwiches to go were delicious.

Second breakfast at the Canyon Alpine Restaurant (424km opens 7am) nice large portions as always.

The scenery is beautiful in the canyon.

Encountered some wildlife, three big horn sheep one little brown bear a few gophers and some chipmunks.

No rain no flats.

The Bad, From Deroche to Agassiz (50-75km) and Yale to Boston Bar (130-170km) the shoulder is in terrible shape. Use caution along theses sections.

The expansion joints on almost every bridge have a large gap and sink holes that could destroy a wheel.

Most of the tunnels have sunken grates along the shoulder and scattered pot holes. Do not draft though the tunnels or over the bridges!

Alexandra Bridge (149km) is having work done on it and is down to single lane traffic; be prepared to wait a few minutes.

If you will be finishing in the afternoon, mentally prepare yourself for heavy traffic from Agassiz to Maple Ridge.

To Consider, Lytton to Cache Creek (85km) is hilly and can get very hot; we had 37 degrees. Buy extra water in Lytton if needed.

Stopping at the Inn at Spences Bridge to rest and refuel before heading up to Cache Creek (2km off course) is recommended.
