ALL CLUB RIDES AND EVENTS CANCELLED

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus and Covid-19 public health crisis OHBTC is as of now canceling all sanctioned club events to include all currently posted rides, regularly scheduled rides, and any other club gathering. This status will be updated as the situation evolves.
if you choose to go out and ride, exercise all due caution. Stay healthy and safe, and we’ll see you all as soon as we can!

Ride With GPS Club Account


OHBTC’s Ride With GPS club account is at

https://ridewithgps.com/clubs/298-oxon-hill-bicycle-and-trail-club.

OHBTC club members can join the club account free and

take advantage of the paid features
unlocked for all
routes in the club route library.

With the
RWGPS
app
on your smartphone, you can have

offline maps
and turn by turn

voice navigation on club routes
.

The Club Route Library is at

https://ridewithgps.com/clubs/298-oxon-hill-bicycle-and-trail-club/routes
.
The club has several route managers who have been adding
their routes to

the
library

The routes can be sorted and/or filtered by route name,
tag, location, distance, elevation and creation date. Clicking
on a route takes you to the route map, cue sheet and GPS
files, which can be downloaded to a Garmin unit. OHBTC is
following a naming convention of using the first two initials
of the start location, the distance and destination as the
route name, e.g.,

BR 44 Riverside
is a 44-mile route from Bryans Road
Shopping Center to Riverside.

Ride More – Log your miles in 2020

Log your miles in 2020 and watch the miles add up, whether
100 miles on a century, 30 miles on a club ride, 10 miles
on a trail, or 1 mile to the store. Some people pencil their
miles into a paper log, some enter them into a computer
spreadsheet, and others track their miles on a website
such as ridewithgps.com.

    stick on your refrigerator, enter your miles with pen
    or pencil, and manually tally your weekly and cumulative
    miles

    that does automatic
    summation of your miles showing your weekly miles
    and your cumulative miles for 2020
  • Use a web site to log your miles

    enter your rides or upload your rides from a GPS device
    or smartphone app.

Making cue sheets

Using www.ridewithgps.com,
you can make cue sheets for rides. The RideWithGPS cue sheets
have turn symbols and extra words that make the cue sheet
more difficult to read than the simple format used for most
OHBTC cue sheets.

Ride leaders usually manually cut and paste a RideWithGPS
cue sheet to format it into a simpler format. Now, there
is a “bookmarklet” that can be used to make a
cue sheet in the OHBTC  format if you are viewing a
RideWithGPS route.  To install the “bookmarklet,”
go to ../cuesheet_maker.html
and drag the link for the “Cuesheet Maker” to
your browser’s bookmark bar.

Whenever you are viewing a RideWithGPS route, you can click
on “Cuesheet Maker” button on your bookmark bar
to create a cue sheet.   For an illustration
of the process, see ../cuesheet_maker.pdf.
NOTE: You must be viewing the route in the “Classic Mode”
view and not the “Beta Mode.”
You can switch from Beta Mode to Classic Mode by clicking “More” 
V “View in Classic Mode.

An alternative to using “Cuesheet Maker” is using URL https://ohbike.org/cuesheet.php?route=”route number”;
for example

https://ohbike.org/cuesheet.php?route=19409400
