I have mapped out the two halves of the on-road bike route I expect to follow on September 5, 2010, and posted it on the MapMyRide website. To view either stage please click the appropriate link below. I subsequently worked on the on-line images in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Imageready, splitting up the sections of the ride into detailed images which I’ve pasted following the descriptive text below.

If you go on-line to MapMyRide note that there is an ad on the page which you can shrink and move to the side by clicking and dragging on its grey border.
