First, from Susan Otcenas:
"Had a conversation about cue sheets with some Canadian and US riders. One small item they seemed to feel differently about from your procedure. General consensus was that they want cue sheets to read left to right. As in Proceed 0.1 miles to mile 159 and turn right at River Rd."
So I thought about it, and modified my copy of cue sheet for the upcoming brevet. Now, for ME, the most important thing on the cue sheet is total distance, because that is what is displayed on my bike computer as well! Given that, I had the leg distance first, but in a slightly smaller font, and the total distance boldface font, same font size as everything else. That way, I could quickly focus on total distance. Looked like this:
|Leg distance given first|
Additionally, from Mark Thomas:
"FYI. I've had pretty good luck with a slight variation of this method. I put additional information (like your 10a stuff) into the cue sheet entries in RwGPS. It ends up in the same place after you do the CSV export / open in Excel, but then you have the information available in the RwGPS file as well."
The way to do this is to select the Add to Cuesheet option over on the right side, then click on the route where you want the control. Then type in any information you want for the cues sheet CSV export.
|Add to Cuesheet dialog box|
|Your notes added to the cues for the route, plus the mileage; nice!|
|Already in your preliminary cuesheet|
(Updated after more feedback from Mark) As well as adding cues for controls, this also works for useful bits of information such as summits, dangerous railroad tracks, or other. In addition, existing cues can be improved with clearer navigation information, and adding SS and/or T (stop sign, t-intersection) or any other useful navigational aids. And this is all stored in the RWGPS file, so you don't have to re-add it should you need to regenerate the cue sheet, and others have access to the information from the RWGPS link.
