Oxon Hill Bicycle and Trail Club

ALL CLUB
RIDES AND EVENTS CANCELED

During to the covid-19 pandemic, OHBTC will not have club rides and events.

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
.

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
