A great turnout for the club's annual August picnic and rides! Thank you to Linda Molesworth for providing the location at her Fresh Meadows Farm, to Road Captain Eric Petersen for organizing the rides, to the ride leaders, to Troy and Mary Ann Eddy for the delicious grilled meat, to everyone who brought a dish to share, to those who brought tables and chairs, and to those who helped with setup and cleanup. Enjoy this video of the riders and the picnic

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 www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.html and drag the link for the "Cuesheet Maker" to your browse'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 www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.pdf
