The Start Location for this event is 1119 Lake Rd, Ontario, NY.
The 1,000k is intended as a PBP tune-up with only a couple of major climbs. On PBP there is little very flat, but nothing very steep either, and no point risking tweaking a knee on a PBP warm-up.
The concept for the 1,000k is a cloverleaf consisting of the 400k loop to Niagara Falls, followed by a 300k into the Finger Lakes. The last 300k will be a new mild route. This is the same as the Waterfalls 1,000k, but with a new final 300k route.
Roughly, these three put together:
The actual start location will either be in Webster, NY near the motels, or Ontario, NY. The finish will be in Ontario. The first loop passes the hotels in Webster, the second loop will be adjusted to do the same.
The final combined route will be available here once it's been approved.
These three are located within a block of each other, the start, fast food, restaurants, etc:
- Fairfield Inn, 915 Hard Rd, Webster, NY 14580
- Holiday Inn Express, 860 Holt Rd, Webster, NY 14580
- Hampton Inn Rochester-Webster, 878 Hard Rd, Webster, NY 14580
Not far by car, but a bit of a bike ride off route on a busy road I prefer not to ride on during the day:
- Super 8, 2450 Empire Blvd, Webster, NY 14580
- Relax Inn, Empire Blvd, Webster, NY 14580
I'm told to avoid the Budget Inn in Ontario, and a couple other places near the Super 8 may be pitching a bit to low for comfort.
