Make Your Own Maps

Ride leaders and ride inventors:
As many of you know, Bicycle Federation of WI sells a printed set of five bike route maps. What many of you may not know is that single counties are available online in PDF format at http://www.dot.state.wi.us/travel/bike-foot/countymaps.htm.

Using this resource, BBC assembled a series of four-county base maps suitable for mapping Bombay rides and added some streets where important. Just click on and download the PDF(s) you need! About 1 MB each. If you have any trouble opening the PDFs in your browser, RIGHT click and “save target as” and then open the files from your desktop.

As you download the files (mostly over 1 mb), save them on your hard drive. Now, you can use any map as an onscreen reference or print portions of it.  BBC provides a cue sheet template.
