This is a “flat as can be” 202k Permanent/ACP Brevet. It is intended also as a winter permanentor brevet with as little climbing as possible (around 700 to 1000 ft, depending on your GPS system). The ride is also for those who want an easy brevet to get started in long distance cycling or to get back into shape. It can still be challenging on a windy day as there are many open farm fields with little wind protection. It is a scenic route with controls in Brooklyn Center - St. Francis - Princeton - Isanti - North Branch - Brooklyn Center.
