This route, designed by Stuart Stiffey, "borrows" the first 200km from the LOL 1000k Lake Ontario Lap, and many of the old International Randonneurs routes.
Stuart's 600k starts in Ontario and follows the Seaway Trail east along the shore of Lake Ontario, with minor detours to find quieter roads, to nearly Cape Vincent, and the Canadian border. From there the ride turns back to the east and south to Camden, NY, familiar to those who rode the IR routes under Jim Konski. From Camden we work our way down to Hamilton, NY, home of Colgate University. From there, it's up to Parish, and the Grist Mill Restaurant. Another favorite from the International Randonneur days in Syracuse. After the Grist Mill, we head back to the start in Ontario, NY, taking Ridge Rd, rather than the Lake Road lake shore route, to have more services available, and a nice down hill run at the end to the start/finish. Total climb is approx 12,500', with most of that the first day.
