The Beartooth Brevet. Time for some climbing.

My 200K Beartooth Brevet is this coming weekend. This is a simple out-and-back from Red Lodge, MT to Cooke City, MT and back. The only thing is-the route climbs up to almost 11,000 feet above sea level. There are actually two summits on the Beartooth Plateau, along with the 5 mile long Colter Pass just before Cooke City. I tried this route last year and came up short-having to shuttle to the summit in the back of a pickup on the way back. I'm determined to get it done this year. We'll leave from Red Lodge at 7:00 AM on July 23, 2011 and see what happens. All the details are HERE.

It went very well. It took 12 hours and 40 minutes and a lot of 5mph stretches but we got it done! I'll get a report up soon.
