Okay, I'm a hiker/backpacker and been in the back country for a long time. I can't stand the heat when I'm backpacking so I bicycle in the summer when it's the hottest, and LOVE IT !!! While backpacking I've also gotten pretty spoiled looking at the ground and being able to follow its direction. And, many places will actually take the navigational skills out by "blazing" with a small vertical paint stripe on a tree, rock, road sign, telephone pole, etc. Of courrse, a map and compass are musts!
So my dumb question - - - is there a system like this in place for the route maps purchased through AC? Y'know, like the "crank/turn" symbols seen on the roads of many of the road bike rides I've been on - a standard symbol that AC maps has created?
Hmmm . . . could make for neat project if one doesn't exist.
