The North American 1200K calendar continues to expand. The Ontario Randonneurs have announced the Granite Anvil 1200, to be run Aug. 6-9 from the Toronto area. See more at the event site.
The eastern part of this ride goes through the pleasant Rideau Lakes area, southwest of Ottawa. I had the chance to ride there more than a few years ago and recall the terrain as similar to PBP — lots of rolling hills but no mountains.
The ride has a limit of 50 and costs $350 Canadian.
