Bob Wheeler died tragically on June 28, 2012, when he was hit by a car while out on a recreational ride. He was 81 years old, but still riding strong. Bob was a giant when it came to bicycling and the White Clay Bicycle Club. He was a founding member of WCBC in the 1970’s, and contributed to the development of some of the major rides. More recently, Bob helped us learn how to use the GPS, taught us how to make cue sheets using his tool “Googly Cue”, searched out shady roads to ride on hot days and bike paths tucked away in secluded corners, and he shared cue sheets on his website. He fixed our bikes, sometimes in his home shop but often on the road, adjusting brakes, replacing gear cables, changing tires. He may be gone in body, but his spirit will live on in so many of us.
Thanks to the legacy left by Bob, we can still take advantage of his extensive knowledge of cycling:
- Cue Sheet is a general purpose cue sheet.
- Circumference offers instructions for accurately setting the wheel circumference of a cycle computer.
- Cabling gives my opinion about what to do with the long wires on cycle computers.
- GPS contains notes I made while exploring GPS devices.
- Map to Cue Sheet describes CueSheetMaker, a program for making cue sheets from files saved by various mapping programs.
- Bicycle Log may be used to record and display bicycle activity data.
Ride Info contains cue-sheets and such in the Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey areas.
