This, from Cycoactive.



I mount it on the aerobars, as on the stem my knees hit it and get cut up when climbing.

When I use the h-bar bag I use the map holder.

I had been using metal binder clips (available at office supply stores) on the shifter cables, but recently started using a cueclip. The binder clip does not solve the problem of flipping to the next page while riding unless you have greater dexterity than I do or like riding no-hands. The cueclip looks easier to manipulate one-handed.

To keep cue sheets dry, I've used zip-lock baggies, and for last year's extremly soggy Seagull Century (we had the remnants of a hurricane!), I copied and cut the cue sheet into sections and laminated them.

Bmbike's suggestion to use the cycoactive holder looks good, it looks like it solves the access, folding, and keep-dry problems. They have some other interesting-looking holders, as well as some neat-looking ideas for storing spare tubes in out of the way locations.

I use the mapcase on top of my handlebar bag.

However, when it falls apart, I'll look for something like what some of the others here have posted.

+1, as well. I always put my cue sheet in a sandwich-size baggy in case of rain. I figure I'll be too scatterbrained to actually remember to put the cue sheet in a baggy at the first sign of rain. Plus, if you dribble gel on your baggie, you can just get a new one out.

I have two of the cue sheet clips mounted next to the stem. There are any number of occasions where I've bumped the cue sheet out of one clip, but only once this year have I bumped it out of both. I do bump it with my knees, when climbing out of the saddle, but it's flexible enough that it really isn't bothersome. And it's easy to flip the baggy and re-attach, one-handed, without stopping.

I used to use a wider version of the Cycoactive cue sheet holder, but the plastic is a bit thicker, so it's a little harder to read the cue sheet at night or in the rain, etc. And it seemed to get more opaque over time. And because it just closes with velcro at the bottom, it's a little more susceptible to getting moisture in with the cue sheet, particularly if your stem slants downward. And it's a bit more annoying for out of saddle climbing.

I use an old English mapholder on one bike and a rubber band around a headlight on another. Both stay out of the way of my knees or anything else. Route sheet and brevet card in a plastic ziploc bag, of course.

Although I'm not a randonneaur, I still use cue sheets/maps sometimes. And, I'm cheap. A chip clip (stolen from the wife) zip tied to the stem works for me. Total cost, about a penny (for the zip tie). Maybe $0.50 if I had to replace the chip clip.

I use a metal binder clip (Staples-issue) zip-tied to my stem. Works like a charm, is stable in the wind and at high speeds (unlike binder clips on the derailleur cables coming out of the brifters), and is simple to turn the page over without much difficulty.

Total cost: less than 25.

Some racer types use a rubber band to hold the route sheet on their forearm.

I do this too. When I'm not using a cuesheet I turn the clip so it's under the stem and out of the way. I also keep the cuesheet in a ziploc baggie.

Works fairly well...although I'm still jealous of the GPS crowd, especially at night.
