Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

He said only part of the course (the loop behind Fawnskin) was like that.

That's a Wahoo Element Bolt. Yes, it can give turn-by-turn directions. It also records your current path of travel, which enables you to back-track, if needed. It can display speed, distance, elevation, heart rate, power, cadence...and a whole lot of other stuff. It does have a large print option. You can "zoom" in or out (adjust the number of data fields that show on the display), and the text size changes.

One of the features I like is that I can use the same head unit on any of my bikes. It automatically connects to whatever speed/cadence/power/HR sensors are active and in range.

It's not my picture but it looks like a typical Garmin style device to me. And yes, they can give turn by turn and display all that other stuff. Some do have large print options. During the Tour de France Femme the camera moto pulled next to Niewiadoma and she had her power display showing in huge digits. You could clearly see 251 watts as she cruised up the Tourmalet.

Have you ever MTB'd the Hanna Flat / Grout Bay loop, from Fawnskin? I enjoy it thoroughly, I try to hit it every time I go to Big Bear, which is 1-2x/year. I rode it on Friday for my warmup.

It's a climb up the forest service road to the Hannah flat campground, which is semi-arid. Very peaceful. Twisty, flowy, sandy single track all the way back down into the Alpine ecosystem by the lake. The bottom bit (Grout Bay) gets a bit steep and more techy/hair-raising.

I don't know. I haven't ridden up there in a long time but we did a loop from Fawnskin into a trail called Mr Toad's Wild Ride and ended up at a little store in Green Valley Lake where we ate lunch before the ride back to the start. Fun day!

There was a long descent down a rocky creekbed thing and when we got to the bottom one guy was missing. A dirt biker came down and said our friend had a flat and needed a pump. He volunteered to take one of our pumps back up to the friend and when the motorcyclist came back down he seized his engine. He asked if we would ride to his camp and tell someone there to pick him up with their truck, so we did.

I have ridden in the hills on the other (south) side of the lake, too

looks like a wahoo elemnt roam. yes, directions, map, heart rate, power, cadence, speed, what gear you’re in etc.

different layouts have different font sizes but i don’t think there’s a “make everything bigger” option.

nice classic country references there. Merle Haggard? I know I could google that in about as long as it's taking me to post this, but guessing is more fun.

Garmin does that also. I use mine across three bikes.

Yes. I didn't intend to give the impression that it was exclusive to the Wahoo. The current format of GPS devices with wireless sensors operating on standardized pathways (Bluetooth, ANT+) makes this feature pretty universal across devices.

I just wish that they would auto-select the bike profile associated with a given sensor.

Garmin has bike profiles, with different screen setups, etc, for each bike, and it tracks mileage separately. You need to manually change the bike profile on the head unit if you're not riding the same bike as the most recent ride, though. It would be nice if the head unit would say, "ah ha - this power meter belongs to 'Merl,' so I'll switch to that bike profile automagically."

Ahh. That would be a nice feature.

As far as I'm aware, being able to create different bike profiles is not part of the Wahoo system. I do that sorting manually in Strava, after the ride data uploads. I have different pages/screens that I use for different bikes or different events, depending on what I want to see. Selecting the page/screen is done with 1 button - pretty easy.
