Notes about accuracy:
The routes above which are listed to hundredths and thousandths of a mile are Jones-Oerth device measured, but not USATF certified. Routes listed to tenths of a mile are electronic cyclometer measured, are approximately plus or minus one tenth, are for training purposes, as they are not measured by Jones-Oerth device.

Cyclists, take note: Number of decimal places in mileage indicates degree of accuracy for these routes. Routes listed to three decimal places would meet the standard for accuracy for USA Cycling Time Trials. Those were measured after using the calibration route on Old Rt 17 near the Thompson / Mamakating border between Rock Hill & Masten Lake. Electronically measured routes (EM) can be assumed to be within approximately five percent degree of accuracy. There are also calibration routes on Airport Rd near White Lake and near Claryville that you can test your cyclometer on. All calibration routes are 400 meters. Go 7' 8" beyond this to get 0.250 miles. These courses have been used to get national certifications of accuracy for running races in the region. A similar standard applies to time trials in bike racing.
