About This Activity

The East Creek 600k is a Randonneur event and is an official ACP Qualifyer for the Paris-Brest Paris 1200k.  The time limit for official finish is 40 hours.  There are checkpoints refered to as "controls" that are also time specific.  For more information on this style of distance riding please visit our web-site.

The route is a tour of Central and Southern New Jersey.  The terrain is mostly flat.  The ride begins and ends at the Days Inn in East Windsor.  Riders will touch both ocean and Delaware River and traverse much of the Pinelands Region.  For those wishing to sleep there are two sleep stops.  The primary is a large cabin in Eldora, NJ at mile 245 and will be men only. For women riders, and their male riding companions, we have another sleep stop in a large house located in Ocean City at mile 225.  Laidies must provide the name of male riding companions in advance.  Both locations will be staffed by volunteers,  will have hot food, shower and bunk available to all riders.  A drop bag will be transported from the start to the cabin awaiting riders arrival.  Riders must provide bedding and towel for the East Creek Cabin.  The Ocean City house has those items provided.

There will be night time riding.  All riders must have front and rear lighting on the bicycle and must wear reflective ankle bands, vest, or sash during non-daylight hours.  Membership in any organization is not required for participation.  However, RUSA Membership is needed for official recognition as a qualifyer.
