Wondering if someone can give me general directions on how to get to Poundridge from CP, approx. distance, and recommend a hilly 75 ml + roundtrip ride from Poundridge. A lot to ask but any help in finding this info. is greatly appreciated.

Mapping software for cycling

You may want to check out mapping software - http://delorme.com/topousa/default.asp

It is $50 for the eastern region version and will print out cue sheets. It will also give you the hill profile of each ride and a three dimension view.

You can pick it up at a local Eastern Mountain Sports store - maybe even Paragon - or you can order it directly from the manufacturer.

Good luck,

It will print out cue sheets?

How does it do this? Can I enter, e.g.
R -- Road A
L -- Road B
BR -- Road C, etc.,
and it will give me distances between turns?

That would save a lot of time, so that one could create a full cue sheet just using a map, without riding the roads.

How it works

I believe others at NYCC use this software and may be more expert than I. However, once you set your road preferences, you can use the mouse to drop waypoints onto the map and it will automatically connect the dots/waypoints and give you a profile and cue sheet for the ride. It is pretty cool.

But, it is not perfect. Once the route is completed you may need to move around a few waypoints to avoid certain roads you just know you don't want to ride down.

The manufacturer gives you a 30 day free trial.

Good Luck,
