Making cue sheets

Using www.ridewithgps.com, you can make cue sheets for rides. The RideWithGPS cue sheets have turn symbols and extra words that make the cue sheet more difficult to read than the simple format used for most OHBTC cue sheets.

Ride leaders usually manually cut and paste a RideWithGPS cue sheet to format it into a simpler format. Now, there is a "bookmarklet" that can be used to make a cue sheet in the OHBTC  format if you are viewing a RideWithGPS route.  To install the "bookmarklet," go to www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.html and drag the link for the "Cuesheet Maker" to your browse's bookmark bar.

Whenever you are viewing a RideWithGPS route, you can click on "Cuesheet Maker" button on your bookmark bar to create a cue sheet.   For an illustration of the process, see www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.pdf
