ROUTES  2018

The weather has much improved, some roads have been fixed (sort of), some decisions have been made.

These are all new map pages, but, in fact, the routes are all identical to what we have used the last several years.  The cue sheets, however, have a few changes.  Based on the situation we faced a couple of months ago, it seems to be a miracle that our old routes are usable.

We have had complaints in the past from a few riders concerning the condition of the roads we were using.  Well, this year is going to be worse (in that regard) than ever – what with all of the damaged roads we are using.  But we still think we can do this safely and provide a good experience (although maybe no PRs) for our riders.
