|View from the Going to the Sun Highway on a 300K brevet in 2012|
What started out as a permanent has morphed into a RUSA 1023K brevet.
The Glaciers to Geysers 1023K permanent was the brainchild of Seattle Randonneur John Pearch who wanted to continue riding after completing the Portland to Glacier 1000K Brevet. The Portland-Glacier 1000K will be run from June 26-29 from Portland, Oregon to Whitefish, Montana.
The Glaciers to Geysers 1023K takes off from Whitefish, MT on June 30 at 5AM. The route takes the Going to the Sun Highway through Glacier National Park and then passes through Great Falls and Livingston, Montana on the way to the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The route through Yellowstone takes in all the major attractions including the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Yellowstone Lake and Old Faithful before exiting the park at West Yellowstone, Montana. The ride finishes in Big Sky, Montana with time running out at 9:44 AM on Friday, July 3.
If you are interested in this ride feel free to contact me and I will put you in touch with John.
