Cue Sheet and GPS Files for December 10 Woodbine Wallop 200K RUSA Brevet

Sunday, December 4th, 2011

The cue sheet for the Woodbine Wallop 200km RUSA brevet, starting at the Woodbine McDonalds at 7:00AM on December 10, 2011 is now posted at Cue Sheet -20111210 Woodbine Wallop 200K Brevet.

The ride starts from the Woodbine McDonalds at 7:00am. Registration will also be inside the McDonalds starting at 6:00am. Park in the Park & Ride shown on the map. Those of you who remember registering in the cold and dark of the Park & Ride lot may appreciate registering inside the nice warm McDonalds. Why not come early enough to get a hearty breakfast before the ride?

Everybody should bring lights and reflective gear to this ride. The days are short enough now that lights will likely be needed at the start, and most riders will finish after dark. But that’s usually a treat on this ride because many houses are lit up for Christmas!

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 - 20111210 Woodbine Wallop 200K Brevet.
