The 600k Antelope Lake brevet is a beautiful ride that covers the first half of our quadrennial Gold Rush Randonnée. The outbound leg heads north from Davis to Knights Landing. From there the route continues north, crossing the agricultural plain, through a wildlife refuge, passes east of Gridley and then to Oroville. At that point riders enter the Feather River Valley on highway 70 and climb north, making an early morning stop at Tobin Resort. Passing through Taylorsville for a stop at the Genesee Store, the route continues up Indian Creek Road to Antelope Lake Dam, the halfway point. Riders then head south, following the same route along the Feather River, through Oroville, and back to the start/finish control in Davis.
There is about 19,000' of climbing on this brevet.
