My disinterest in using a GPS to ride with is well documented. I’ve been mocked. Endlessly. I’m not talking about wanting to know where the next hotel or gas station is because I see the value in that. Especially if you’ve only got 15 miles left on reserve and you’ve come to a fork in an unfamiliar road with no signs pointing to gas. Then the GPS is a gem.
So far, I seem to be able to find my way along the roads of life with my oldskool paper route sheets and a sharpie pen. AND.. get this.. people actually have fun riding with me inspite of it! Go figure. [insert smirk here] It’s simply a preference thing. When I’m already out on the road, I get an overall view and understanding with a paper map that I cannot personally get on a 5 inch screen.
So here it is, my riding map stash:
If you really want to get technical, I’ve got a map wheel too.
