OLD - Cue Sheets Page

My most recent routes and cue sheets are on the  RIDE STATUS  page.

New page - being developed

OLD Metro Metric on Sunday July 30, 2007 from Hampshire, IL - - METRO METRIC WEB SITE  with cue sheets, maps and other route information.

The following are some cue sheets I've developed for various rides.  In genereal these are updated whenever I ride that perticular route.  The latest version is always the "spreadsheet version" since that is the "working" version.  The "printable .pdf version" is usually updated whenever the "spreadsheet version" is updated.  The HTML version  (the first link listed, if it's available)  may not be the most up-to-date. By the way, there are lots of tiepoes in these cue sheets, so use them with care and primarily as idea sources.  Any corrections you provide will be appreciated.
