Bike Map

I have spent an absolutely inordinate amount of time on this map!!! However, the road bike routes in Buncombe County are especially of interest to me, and I can see myself looking at this map in the future to check out roads, mountain peaks, etc. I still feel lacking in knowledge of how to get labels to curve with features, so I'm going to spend the next bit of time learning about that. So much to learn!! But god knows, I can start working on a map, and look at my watch and 3 hours have gone by! Whew!!! It's really fun... :)

Second Printing - Asheville Bike Routes Map

This is the version I am showing to the class. I find it very difficult to say "I'm done". But I'm done enough today to show this map to the class. A did a little bit of splining of labels; never did get to do any drop shadows, but overall I pretty happy with this map. I think it's attractively designed. I think I have a knack for the design part. Now I just need the memory to remember how I have done things, or how Pete has demonstrated things. That's harder for me. I need another 1G memory chip! :)
