Cue Sheet and GPS Files for October 16 Cacapon 200K RUSA Brevet

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

The cue sheet for the Cacapon 200K RUSA brevet starting at the Super 8 in Middletown, VA at 7:00AM on October 16, 2010 is now posted at Cue Sheet - 20101016 Cacapon 200K Brevet. Be sure to park as far from the motel entrance as possible. Registration will start at 6:00AM in the motel lobby.

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.
