LOCOmotion 600

June 22 @ 8:00 am - June 24 @ 5:00 pm

Welcome to the third edition of the LOCOmotion 600!

The LOCOmotion 600 is an approximately 600 km endurance ride starting in Halifax. It’s a fixed route, single-stage, self-supported event. The ride is done solo or in pairs, and riders have 2.5 days to complete the route. The ride starts at 06:00 on June 22, 2024 from the top of Citadel Hill (road), and ends at 18:00 June 24 in the same spot.

What is self-supported?

 

  • No support car, water drops, or outside support of any kind – it’s all up to you to get to the finish!
  • In other words, riders must be fully self-sufficient and not receive any private assistance. All food, lodging, etc. must be commercially available to all riders.

There are three unmanned checkpoints riders must hit. The rider manual will outline checkpoints and all the nitty-gritty stuff you should know about the event. The route will undergo slight changes up until the start, but the direction will remain the same.
