From: OHBTC Board
To: All club members

We hope everyone in the club is doing well.

In March, the club announced that all OHBTC activities would be cancelled until further notice because of the covid-19 pandemic. Because the club went into a “pause” mode, memberships were extended three months. The Patuxent River Rural Legacy Ride was cancelled and refunds sent to registered riders.

On June 3, the OHBTC board and ride coordinators held a virtual meeting via Zoom and agreed that the club should stay in the “pause” mode throughout the summer. Club memberships will be extended another three months. The board will meet in September to discuss resuming club activities.

We will miss the Patuxent River Rural Legacy Ride, the Watermelon Ride, the Picnic and the Indian Head 100 this year. These events have been enjoyed by many cyclists over the years, thanks to the club’s wonderful volunteers. We appreciate the dedication of club volunteers who have made these events successful.

We look forward to being able to have club activities again without the risk of spreading the coronavirus. Until then, we encourage club members to enjoy riding their bikes solo or with family members or close friends. Many club members are posting their individual cycling activities to

The board referred to several resources in making its decision. Stay healthy and safe,

Ride With GPS Club Account

OHBTC's Ride With GPS club account is at

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 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
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 and let’s see how many miles club members can log during 2018.

Making cue sheets

Using, 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"route number"; for example
