ALL CLUB RIDES AND EVENTS CANCELED DUE TO PANDEMIC
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 https://www.strava.com/clubs/ohbike.
The board referred to several resources in making its decision.
- A letter from the Potomac Pedaler’s president
to the PPTC membership has thoughtful points that
- USA Cycling covid-19 resources. https://usacycling.org/event-organizer/covid-19-event-resources
- Is it safe to go on a group ride?. https://www.velonews.com/culture/explainer-is-it-safe-to-go-on-a-group-ride/
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.

Making 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
