Cue Sheet and GPS Files for July 8 Warrenton 400K ACP Brevet

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

The cue sheet for the Warrenton (Firefly) night-start 400K starting at the Warrenton Hampton Inn at 8:00PM on July 8, 2011 is now posted at Cue Sheet - 20110708 Firefly 400K. Please park away from the front entrance of the hotel.  Registration will take place from 7-8PM. Lights and reflective gear are required so bring your bike and reflective gear to registration for inspection.

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.
