Visual cue sheet - the beginning of an idea

Nearly two years ago when I was working on the first Diverged Project Ride I tried to put together a cue sheet for the ride.  It was destine for failure because so much of that route was off road.  It’s challenging to create a text based cue sheet when street names don’t exist.  “Take a left at the tree that does not look like the others” is not a very useful cue.

I tried to do this again for the Coffee Cross mixed terrain ride a few weeks ago.  And, again, I ran out of time – but I did make a draft that I think could have worked.

For the upcoming HONKM, I think I’ve got a way to make a visual cue sheet work.  It’s nothing radical; fairly obvious.  It’s a lot of work to make it work well.  This visual cue sheet has to work for about 65 miles of some of the most varied terrain.

We’re about to find out how it goes for the Honey One Hundred ride.  I can’t wait!
