Cue Sheet, Course GPX, and Leg Descriptions

Just working through the last few sections of access and checking of the route. Things are looking pretty good with a few changes between Lawrence and Ranfurly to be finalised by tomorrow.

The map will be updated and once that is done will look to finalise the Cue Sheet (your turn by turn instructions) and the course GPX (for download for those using GPS). Will also post some details about each leg so you will know what to prepare for and the odd bit to watch out for (obstacles or areas of tricky navigation).

Have tweaked a few areas to make the climbs a little less steep and more rideable while keeping things interesting. Some big country out there to explore! Overall it should be a little easier than the western Great Southern Brevet route used last time. Once you reach Alexandra the big climbs are out of the way (though there is still plenty of hills in Otago which need scaling).

Some scorching weather at the moment so here's hoping you get some of these views:

Lake Dunstan and Cromwell, after the big climb ;-)

Fantastic riding across the top of Otago

And for something completely different! A bit of lush single track
