Cue Sheet and GPS Files for September 18 Civil War Tour 200K ACP Brevet

The cue sheet for the Civil War Tour 200K ACP  brevet starting at the Perkins Restaurant & Bakery in Frederick, MD at 7:00AM on September 18, 2010 is now posted at Cue Sheet - 20100918 Civil War Tour 200K Brevet. Be sure to park in the large shopping center lot as indicated on the map. Do not park in the spaces next to the Perkins, Pizza Hut, or other restaurants.

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.

GPS files are posted at GPS Files - 20100918 Civil War Tour 200K Brevet. Note that the route has a short unpaved section, so be sure to set your GPS to allow unpaved.
