Some folks find their way as map readers and others read only the narratives. Most cyclists use both modes while pedaling their route. If you’re a narratives reader and like to rely on the turn-by-turn text directions, then consider the CueClip made by Ohio Travel Bag.
The CueClip is another one of those small, inexpensive devices that seem so insignificant until you’ve reached around into your jersey pocket for the umpteenth time searching for that now sweaty piece of paper or your map. Used for long- and short-distance touring, club rides, century rides, and everything in between, the CueClip makes glancing at the narratives or map very easy while on the fly.
CueClip is nothing more than a small plastic clip and Velcro strapping that attaches to your handlebar. This mighty little clip firmly holds printed maps or narratives of your turn-by-turn directions. The clip itself is all plastic with a brass rivet so you can leave it on the bike all the time. No rusting. It’s very small but has a strong bite. Even at high speeds and in windy conditions, the CueClip holds strong. The Velcro strapping fits most tube sizes and attaches to the handlebars or stem.
We’ve received a lot of feedback about how reliable the clip is. Many riders have claimed the CueClip as a “must have” accessory for touring or traveling by bicycle with map and/or narratives.
