There were two 1000 km route offerings for the August 2006 long weekend (5th-8th). Though there was interest shown for Stephen Hinde's CCC 1000 (Cariboo Clockwise from Clearbrook), in the end no one attempted it. Jeff Schlingloff did ride the other 1000 - a route he designed based on the Switchback 1000, but with the easy Fraser Valley parts snipped out. I thought the route was just insane enough to rate a mention in the newsletter. Following the map find Jeff's notes on his ride. At the bottom on the page is a link to Jeffs own extensive pages about this route - be sure to visit this site.
Start time was 04:30, on Saturday, Aug. 5/06.
