My second guidebook and friend, BICYCLE YOUR FRANCE: SECRET BURGUNDY, now has a facelift, all redrawn maps, waypoints with GPS data and renamed as BURGUNDY SECRETS. All sixteen of the original route maps are included, but now easier to understand and navigate. Elevation data was acquired every 200 meters on each route and new profiles drafted.
All routes include discussions of a few villages, historical personalities and points of interest along the way.
Included with each route is the latest method for listing Waypoints. Now each Waypoint locates longitude and latitude in degrees, minutes and seconds (to the hundredth), and in digital format. Cyclists with GPS-enabled smartphones may check each of the turn instructions while their companions either wait around or get on with the ride.
As with all other BICYCLE YOUR FRANCE guidebooks, this guide also offers a companion publication, QUEUE SHEETS, with just the Waypoint listings (with GPS), route maps and elevation profile.
