There are 300km events all around the world to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the very first 300km brevet.  These celebratory events are expected to be social.  

Start: Breka Bakery (4th and just west of Alma)  24 hour. Coffee and some baked goods available early in the morning

Finish: Elwoods Pub (West Broadway and Waterloo, about 1 km from start). Closes at 2 am

Climbing: 1714m.  For a 300km ride this is not a lot of climbing. There is a short steep climb on Lefeuvre Rd/Graham Crescent (79km) and some steeper pitches on Old Orchard Rd (Chilliwack Mountain  at 143km)

Gravel:  A flat 4 km of gravel along the Boundary Bay Dike trail.  239.5 km - 243.7 km

Transit:  Sorry. This is too early for the regular buses and too late for the night buses.  I can't find service to either W 4th and Alma or W 10th and Alma at this time of day. 

Parking: On Highbury between 4th Ave and 6th Ave.  On the north side of 4th Ave, west of Highbury.

Services: Details to come.  There are many places on this route to stop for food.  Birchwood dairy is at both 115km and 176km

I haven't confirmed with Elwoods yet but we can go back to Breka Bakery if Elwoods doesn't want us.
