POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Navigation


You will be responsible for following the route yourself. We will not have any official "tour guides" that will lead anyone on the route.

Our navigation systems are excellent. We rarely have any lost cyclists and if we do, it is almost invariably because they were "sleeping at the wheel" and not paying attention.

Because no one navigational system is best for cycling on the road, we use up to six separate, redundant systems of navigation to help ensure that you do not get lost on the road. They work just as well in the middle of cornfields as in the middle of Chicago.

Our primary means of navigation system are:

  • On road and in town paper cue sheets
  • On road and in town paper maps

Our supplementary means of navigation are:

  • Handlebar mounted GPS devices
  • Directional marks painted directly on the road
  • Orange ribbons
  • Sidewalk chalk marks
  • Other participants
