Just interested in what maps people carry with them if they’re going out for an exploratory road ride. I usually carry a 1:50 000 OS map if I’m going somewhere new but I find the scale a bit too fine for cycling and invariably end up going off the edge of it. Has anyone tried the 1:100 000 cycling maps that the AA make (eg. ‘Cycling in the North of England’)? Shadings or contours for easy finding of big hills would be a bonus too (so I can track them down, rather than avoid them...). Any other alternatives (not smart phone/GPS/etc.) for road rides?
