How do you clip cue sheet to bike?

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

It looks like its just velcro backing on the strip.

Is that what you mean?

A lot of folks that I ride with just use one of the small-ish binder clips, around the brake or shifter cables. Pretty low-tech, but cheap and functional.

Or one or two clothes pins, clipped to a cable. No need for the rubber band.

I just have my support vehicle let me know via my in-ear two-way radio.

Alternatively, I can always follow the motorcycle with the camera guy hanging off the back.

I made one which is nearly identical to that from 1) velcro strips, and 2) clips, that I got at Staples.

The only problem that I have is that I normally fold up the cue sheet, and then I have to take it out and reposition it when it goes over a "border" (same problem with multi-page cue sheets). Otherwise it works well.

me too. I generally try to memorize two or three turns ahead, though it gets interesting when I'm on a tiny backroad, riding with no hands, weaving, trying to read directions written in 12 pt font thats smudged from sweat. I figure thats all the part of the challenge of a new route...

Question:
Do all big organized rides provide cue sheets?

Reason:
This weekend will be my first organized ride for 50 miles. From what I've heard a good many cyclists race in this thing. But there will be some of us slowpokes who will be dropped before the first full turn of the crank. So I don't want to be lost somewhere in S.C. looking for arrows.

Most should supply some form of directions... if you're lucky, marks on the roads will be very easy to follow, if you have a general idea of when a turn will be coming up. Check the event website - sometimes they'll post it online.

i've gotten a route sheet at every paid organized ride that i have ridden! some of the better, larger ones even mark the route with arrows, signs, etc!

I use a clear plastic pen/pencil holder from my day planner organizer and a couple pieces of string tied through the holes and around my brake/gear cables. Fold up the sheet, stick it in the plastic case and voila!, cue sheet holder. Of course, it sucks when you have to pull the sheet out to flip it over, but it's manageable.

I just use a jip tie and an alligator clip. Total cost about 25 cents. After about 5 years or so the jip tie will break because they are designed to break down). I've seen lots of people use clips like 'nother posted. Never seen anyone have trouble with them.

Memorize it ahead of time, then eat it.

I used to use scraps of paper, which invariably became soaked with sweat, until half way through last season I got one of these…

When you reach 45 yrs. old, the cue sheets become worthless. I need a magnifying glass to read them. If the route isn't marked, I have to follow someone with good, young eyes. I guess I need a pair of bifocal riding glasses, but it hasn't been a problem yet.

I just look up and follow the faster riders. It's never concerned me how the lead rider might find his way.

Here's something I posted in the Tips & Trick thread. I'd rather not clip anything to my bike, hence my solutions:

If I get a new route that I'm not familiar with from someone, I'll print it out on a piece of paper. Then I'll cut that paper down to size (usually around 3" x 3") and take some clear/wide tape (often used for shipping) and wrap the paper with the tape, making it water-proof. For a long route, I'll take 2 pieces of paper & put them together back to back before taping.

This worked fine, except it was always a hassle to find the route and pull it out, especially when wearing gloves. So I'd ride up to an intersection, have to find and pull out the route & then put it away, taking too much time and hassle. So I hit upon a great solution (for me). I also do a fair amount of woodworking and I'm always searching for a pencil. Last year I bought a bunch of Pencil Leashes (https://www.pencilleash.com/) - they work by clipping the unit to your shirt (or whatever) and pulling an attached pencil out on a 36" leash. Let go of the pencil & it reels back in. The pencil attaches to a snap clip - so I just took my waterproof route and punched a hole in it and replaced the pencil with it. I then clipped the route inside of my jacket - anytime I want it I just grab it and well, pull it out. Let go & it retracts, no fumbling around.

Here's a picture of the Pencil Leash:

+1, and when I finally do need the directions the route slip is too sweaty too read . When I can remember, I bring one of those clips like 'Nother posted, that works great.
