Cue Sheet and GPS Files for December 11 200K RUSA Brevet

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

The cue sheet for the Woodbine 200K RUSA brevet, starting at the Woodbine Park & Ride at 7:00AM on December 11, 2010 is now posted at Cue Sheet - 20101211 Woodbine 200K Brevet.

The ride starts from the Park & Ride at 7:00am. Registration will open at 6:00am.  There is a Highs Store across from the Park & Ride with restrooms.

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. The GPS files are posted at GPS Files - 20101211 Woodbine 200K Brevet.

Note that the Garmin maps do not include a relatively recent extension of MD31 in New Windsor, which connects it directly to MD75. Therefore, when you go through New Windsor near miles 16.5 and 112.6, the GPS will try to follow a slightly different route.
