Ride More - Log your miles in 2018

Log your miles in 2018 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 Garmin Connect.
The National Bike Challenge encourages cyclists to ride more. Cyclists earn a point for each mile and 20 points for each day they ride. Enter your rides in Strava and have them automatically appear on the National Bike Challenge.

Join the 2018 OHBIKE Challenge at https://www.endomondo.com/challenges/26435638 and let’s see how many miles club members can log during 2018.

[read full minutes at https://ohbike.memberlodge.org/minutes/march-3-2018].

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 https://ohbike.memberlodge.org/join

    • ???- President
    • Janell Saunders - Vice President
    • Diane Harris - Secretary
    • Ron Altemus - Treasurer
    • Barbara Haney - Road Captain
The club is currently without a president.  The board is looking for a person who is interested in holding that position.  Interested candidates should contact the members of the board or Jim and Jane Hudnall.

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#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

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 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
