Gandalf reaches Rivendell.

The Lord of the Rings, Appendix B, The Tale of Years: The Third Age

'I reached here at last by a long hard road, up the Hoarwell and through the Ettenmoors, and down from the north. It took me nearly fourteen days from Weathertop, for I could not ride among the rocks of the troll-fells, and Shadowfax departed.... But so it was that I came to Rivendell only three days before the Ring.... 1

The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 2, Ch 2, The Council of Elrond

1According to the Tale of Years, Gandalf arrived in Rivendell on October 18th, but Frodo arrived with the Ring on the 20th; thus, there appears to be a small discrepancy between the dates in Gandalf's narrative.
