Subject: Is the Horrible Hundred and/or GFT bike route marked?
Subject says it all. I wanted to know if the Horrible Hundred route and/or the Great Floridan bike course is marked on the road so an out-of-towner might be able to follow the routes easily, or at least somewhat easily? I have maps and cue sheets for both but obviously road markings make it much easier!

Thanks!

There are little arrows painted before each turn. Many are still there, but I have not rode the entire course since the event.

I ride the GFT course weekly. The markings are there, but in many places they are worn and difficult to see. In addition, there are lots of other cyclist/clubs that use the routes, so in some places there may be conflicting marks on the road. IMO, it's not really a difficult route to follow, but if you're unsure, you might want to have your GPS fired up.

Thanks for the replies! I always have the map and cue sheet when I do any unfamiliar rides but it's always nice to be lazy and have arrows marking the way. It sounds like I should find my way around either of these routes. Thanks again!

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.
