Minutes of the Annual Meeting
Club fees for each category of club membership will increase by $5.00 per year. Those wanting to take advantage of the current membership fees may renew and extend their membership at the current rate up until April 1, 2018. This is the first price increase in more than ten years and is needed, since insurance, membership/event software, storage space costs have increased. Although event income covers some of the additional membership fees, the board made the decision to increase the membership dues. Join or rewnew at http://ohbike.memberlodge.org/join.

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.
The Club Route Library is at https://ridewithgps.com/clubs/298-oxon-hill-bicycle-and-trail-club#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.

Making cue sheets
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.

of the process, see
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 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 www.ohbike.org/cuesheet_maker.pdf
