Much better than the Bicycle maps available in some states. I use this in conjunction with a GPS as context and a alternative. Some day's I just use the map. This version has all the secondary and tertiary roads printed in a font and with colors that make it readable for someone who wears bifocals. Wonderful printing job. A must have for bike trips in NY and Adirondacks.
You could simply use the bike GPS but I would not use the GPS without a backup like this.
