    Not really.

    Riding on sidewalks is illegal (in MN) by persons older than 12 years (I believe). Should the instructors tell 13 year olds to break the law?

    Anyway, there could be ways of getting...

    It's not a bad idea to practice using cue-sheets especially since you might not always have a gpx file. Though, I think most people move towards using the GPS as the primary navigation tool.

    Smart phones (modern "flagship" models) are much, much faster computers with more memory than the Garmin Edge units (even, I suspect, the 1000). That's great. Smart...

    I've actually never heard that this is common at all. I have something-like 8000+ miles on a 800 and haven't seen it.
