The cue sheet for the Frederick 400K ACP Brevet starting at the Frederick Motel 6 at 4:00AM on May 22, 2010 is now posted in Excel form at Cue Sheet - 20100522 Frederick 400K Brevet (and in PDF form at PDF Cue Sheet - 20100522 Frederick 400K Brevet). Registration and bike inspection will occur from 6:00-9:00PM on Friday evening and 3:00-4:00AM on Saturday morning in the walkway at the end of the motel near West Patrick Street. Park in the upper area of the Motel 6 parking lot, near West Patrick Street. The entrance nearest to this end is closed off, so you’ll need to enter a little further down and then drive back up. Please don’t park along the side of the motel in the area that is reserved for guests.
All riders will be required to show front and rear lights attached to their bicycle and personal reflective gear, as described in Article 10 of the RUSA Rules for Riders. Note that spare “bulbs” are not needed for LED lights. But a second, redundant lighting unit is recommended for both front and rear lights.
The link to the GPS files is posted below. But please read this information before downloading them. Always get a copy of the final cue sheet. That final cue sheet contains the official route, so in case there is a conflict with the GPS file, you should resolve the conflict in favor of the cue sheet. Use the GPS as a handy-dandy adjunct. Keep your wits about you, as the GPS cannot notify you of road hazards — it is up to you to ride safely.
We strongly recommend that you set your GPS to the settings below. We cannot guarantee that these will keep you on the official route, but if you have your GPS set some other way, it is entirely possible that it will take you off route, possibly onto unsafe roads. Go to the Setup->Routing page and set as follows:
Guidance Method: Follow Road
Follow Road Method: Shortest Distance
Next Turn Pop-Up: On
Follow Road Options:
Off Route Recalculation: Prompted
Calculation Method: Best Route
Calculate Routes for: Car/Motorcycle
Avoid: (set to none – the route itself should control this)
By the way … make sure that your GPS either has maps already downloaded, or select the relevant maps around the routes.
