Runs Lists & Library

Jump to the relevant section

Introduction

The club operate two distinct systems; the Runs List and Runs Library.

The Runs List records our normal Wednesday rides; it shows start location, time, leader, destination etc. The leader of a ride has the opportunity to add a ‘clickable route’ to an entry. A summary of the Runs List is shown on the home page of the website.

The Runs Library is a list of rides relating to a particular event – eg there is a category relating to rides relating to the forthcoming trip to The Cotswolds. Any club member can add an entry to the Runs Library.

‘Clickable routes’ are routes created by you in your account with Ride With GPS.
A link to such a route can be added to either the Runs List or Runs Library so that they can be accessed by other riders.

Adding Rides to Runs List

Cancelling Rides

If the weather forecast is bad, and the leader decides to cancel the ride, they must put a notice on the blog and relevant WhatsApp group by 6pm the previous night.

Leaders

Important to show leaders for rides – a condition of our 3rd party insurance is to document our rides with leaders and participants. For the same reason it is important that the Leader submits a ‘Ride Report’ on ‘the Blog’ which will list the riders that were present on the ride.

Add Your Route to Runs List

Each ride can only have one route associated with it, the ride must first appear on the Runs List before a route can be added to it. In order to add a route of you will need to obtain a link to a route that has been created by you in Ride With GPS. To use Ride With GPS to create a route and link – see other sections on this page. You will need the following

  1. Ride Leaders Name exactly as shown on Runs List (will no doubt be your name)
  2. A “Ride With GPS” link to your route – Using Ride with GPS (normally stored in your clipboard
    This will be in the format “https://ridewithgps.com/routes/nnnnnnn”, where ‘nnnnnn’ is a unique number obtained from RideWithGPS.
  3. Date of ride in the format 04 08 2019

Once entered, the route should then appear on the Runs List . It is critical that the above data is entered correctly or it will not match up to the existing entry on the runs list.
It may take 5 to 10 mins to to work its way through the system before it is displayed on the Runs List.

Amending a RideWithGPS route

If you want to amend a clickable route that has already been entered then this can be done by editing the route from within RideWithGPS.
If you want to replace the route in its entirety, then this can be done by entering the new clickable route using the above form – it should overwrite the existing entry.

The table below lists the current runs groups with information on approximate distances and average moving speeds.

Komoot

Komoot is a very capable app that has the capability of replacing both Ride With GPS and a Garmin satnav – by using your smartphone on the bike
However we cannot support multiple programs and for the purposes of adding clickable links to the Runs List and Runs Library we have standardised on Ride With GPS.

These notes relate to using Komoot.
