Cue sheet and GPS files for November 11th Flatbread 205km RUSA brevet

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

The cue sheets for the Flatbread 205km RUSA brevet starting at the Mama Mia’s Sports Bar in Centreville, MD at 7:00AM on November 11 are now posted at

The ride starts from the parking lot of the Good Guys Pizza at 7:00am. Registration will also be at Good Guys and opens at 6:00am.  We will not have safety inspections, but riders should still take full reflective gear and lighting, just in case:

Parking is not be permitted in the Mama Mia’s parking lot.  There is a municipal parking lot at the corner of Happy Lady Lane and Water St.  Plenty of parking there (see square outlined in red in the image flatbread_parking.png).  There may also be street parking in the area.

Note that there is no restroom facility available at the start, so please find one on the way in. If you use Route 213 north from Route 301, there is a McDonalds on the right 1 mile north from the exit. If you’re coming in from the North, there is a truck stop at the intersection of Rts 304 and 301.

The Milton Control is an “open” control, meaning that you can choose any business nearby. But you must still get your card initialed with the time, and get a receipt from that business. If the receipt does not include the name and address of the business, write it on your control card.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.
