OHBTC cue sheets.

Ride leaders usually manually cut and paste a RideWithGPS cue sheet to format it into a simpler format. Now, there is a "bookmarklet" that can be used to make a cue sheet in the OHBTC format if you are viewing a RideWithGPS route. To install the "bookmarklet," go to www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.html and drag the link for the "Cuesheet Maker" to your browse's bookmark bar.
Whenever you are viewing a RideWithGPS route, you can click on "Cuesheet Maker" button on your bookmark bar to
create a cue sheet. For an illustration of the process, see www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.pdf
