    Computer Touring/Que Sheet Question

    When touring an unknown area using a route que sheet, what do you do with the computer if you find that you would like to stray or ride off route for a little while and then come back to the que sheet route to continue? How would you reset the trip odometer to be back where it was before you strayed so it would be back with the que sheet.
    Thanks,
    Tony

    There is at least on computer that lets you adjust your mileage so you can sync it with the cue sheet, but I don't know which one. The problem with that is that you then loose track of how far you have actually gone.

    I've found that after some distance, my odometer isn't matching the cue sheet anyways, so I've learned to just keep an offset in my head and add or subtract it from whatever the cue sheet says. On my last brevet, after 200 miles my computer was showing about a mile and a half lower than the cue sheet, so I'd just subtract 1.5 miles from whatever the sheet said. Sometimes that simple math can get challenging after 20+ hours on the road, but it's not too bad.

    If I'm coming back to the point where I left the route, I just pop the computer into my pocket and put it back in the mount when I rejoin the route.
