 Hi Everyone,

I thought i would start a discussion thread to collect comments on the
cue sheets.

There were a couple mistakes we'd like to correct, but i'd also like to
know where people got lost so we can clarify those parts, too.

Sandiway and I did the ride yesterday and ended up taking a different way
home from the cue sheet on Diane's site - see excerpt below. We went
through Griggstown and down Canal Rd (past 518 and Route 27/Nassau), made a
quick R on Euclid then continued from there. He said this was the updated
cue sheet and it seemed to be the only major difference.

I did notice the mileage from Amwell Rd. to the R on East Mountain Road was
off. Both cue sheets show 3 miles. I think it's closer to 1 or 1.5. I
know because we got lost and added about 2 miles halfway through the ride.
When I got to East Mountain, the mileage dropped by about 2 miles and I was
frustrated we were that much 'further' from the end!

excerpt from updated cue sheet:
      0.80 32.00 183.61 L Orchard Rd.
      0.70 32.70 184.31 X Rt. 206 (Traffic light) [ROCKY HILL]
      0.10 32.80 184.41 S Rt. 533N - 4-Way Stop -bc River Road
      2.50 35.30 186.91 R CR632 East (one lane bridge) bc Griggstown Highway
      0.30 35.60 187.21 TR Canal Road - leaving CR632
      3.10 38.70 190.31 X Rt. 518 - At Traffic Light - onto CR603S
      1.80 40.50 192.11 X Rt. 27/Nassau St [PRINCETON] [MIDDLESEX COUNTY]
      0.10 40.60 192.21 R Euclid Ave.
      0.20 40.80 192.41 L Academy Rd. - Stop Sign [KINGSTON]
      1.00 41.80 193.41 BL Seminary Dr. - Traffic light
      0.40 42.20 193.81 L College Rd West
      0.10 42.30 193.91 R Houghton Lane (one of many entrances to parking
lot)


Personally, I think it would be helpful to have the cue sheets in Excel,
since it's easier to copy them and change the format. I find some cue
sheets hard to read and it's much easier to change them in Excel to change
the fonts, wrap text, add color to alternate rows, etc.

I also found this confusing. Either I wasn't paying attention or there's
something amiss here. Did anybody else have problems?

      2.70 42.10 141.21 ????? - continue straight
      0.10 42.20 141.31 S Continuing onto Rt 512 - stop sign
      0.10 42.30 141.41 P Post Office on right - Cross green/metal bridge
      0.10 42.40 141.51 R Hacklebarney Rd or Pottersville Rd - stop sign
      0.10 42.50 141.61 S Pottersville Reformed Church and Bank on right
