The repository contains cue sheets for CRW and other rides, and maps for some rides.
A description of the abbreviations used in these cue sheets is contained in the Cue Sheet Conventions.
Wonder where those arrows you've seen on the road go? Consult our Ride Arrow Design page for information. If you're leading a ride, this will show you what designs to copy or avoid.
To see where the rides starts are on a map, go to the Ride Starts Map page.
We have a library of GPS routes for some of these rides that can be used with mapping programs and downloaded to GPS units.
The waypoint or route files are keyed to the maps of the routes in the CRW Ride Database. We have made waypoints for turns in the cue sheets.
All the waypoints for a ride are in a single file, which is given in GPX format. This format can be imported into most mapping programs and GPS software. These have an extension of .gpx. Some programs may expect a different extension (.xml for example). You can try dragging and dropping the route file onto the program window to see if it's compatible, or renaming them to the extension the program expects. Just be sure that the format the program is expecting is an ASCII or text format, not a proprietary binary format.
To transfer these data to a GPS unit, you will need a mapping program with GPS capability such as the DeLorme© programs, Street Atlas or Topo, or Garmin© MapSource.

The elevation gains quoted are derived by importing the route files into DeLorme Topo USA 6.0, which calculates the profile for the route. Your elevation gain may differ.
These cue sheets are offered for your personal use, NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE. Other organizations wishing to lead one of these rides should check with CRW first. CRW Ride leaders wishing to use one of these routes as a CRW ride should contact the leader first, if one is listed, to avoid potential conflicts.
NOTE: The routes in this collection represent rides that in some cases occurred several years ago. Present road conditions and locations may not exactly match the cues provided, and these should be used primarily as a guide. Several of the longer rides in this series are extremely difficult, and should be undertaken only with adequate preparation.
