Burning Fire 1200k

Burning Fire 1200k

This 1200k route design project actually began before I created the Northern Light 1200k route I disclosed in my last post to this blog. So many routes (typically shorter than 1200k) have used Leesburg, VA as a start/finish location that I didn’t really want to design yet another. And I’ve never really been much of a fan of routes that start and end in Leesburg. Either the routes were poorly designed, or I just did not like them because getting to Leesburg from Princeton, NJ was much more of a hassle than getting to Manassas or many other locations that can be used for a good start/finish.

However, I already had a neat 400k point-to-point route designed that could be used for Day 1 of a 1200k route. And I didn’t think it would be all that difficult to design a 200k point-to-point from Harrisonburg back to Leesburg. So I finished up the original project which resulted in the creation of Burning Fire 1200k.

Northern Light 1200k

Northern Light 1200k

This 1200k route design project started out as one that was to begin and end in Leesburg, VA. However, after I successfully designed a 400k point-to-point route from Leesburg to Harrisonburg, VA it dawned on me that Harrisonburg would be a neat start/finish location for a route design project. And Northern Light was created.

Treasure Trove 1200k

When I finished my last 1200k route design project that started and ended in Columbia, SC I thought my next route design project would involve roads in Georgia. However, I changed my mind. I had gotten an email notice from a RUSA RBA that registration had opened up for a 1200k event he was hosting in Virginia in September. I thought it would be nice to see if I could design a neat route in Virginia. So that is what I proceeded to take a stab at.

Palmetto Delight 1200k

Palmetto Delight 1200k

I finally got around to designing a route in South Carolina. I thought it would be harder to do than it ended up being. I began by doodling a 400k route out of Columbia, SC. The route starts and finishes in the parking lot of my college dorm during my freshman and sophomore years. This should be an excellent route to tackle in early Spring or late Fall.

The length of the Day Two Leg is a little longer than I had hoped it would be – 20 miles or so. But the ride is flat. So the extra few miles should not be a big deal.
