POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
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
- Orange ribbons
- Sidewalk chalk marks
- Other participants
