Map Reading 101
« on: June 01, 2016, 03:14:20 pm »
Hi,

I'm new to these forums.  I ordered a map (for the loop outside of Austin).  I wanted to ride in from Fredericksburg.  I received the map.  I'm amazed by the amount of information on this map, but for the life of me I can't figure it out.  Is there a place on the website where there is orientation on how to read these?

Thanks for the help.

Hi frankg813,

Yes, there is a place on the website to learn more about that map in your hands!

On the page below you will find a description of the map features and at the bottom of the page an informative and fun video on how to read the map:

Let me know if you have further questions.

Have a great trip!
