Recently the HBC Website Ridelogs system has been enhanced. Following are the new/improved capabilities:
All existing Ridelogs were migrated over, so the upgrade should be pretty seamless. But if you notice any differences, please let me know.
An iPhone app will be available soon that will enable you to create a Ridelog quickly and easily from your iPhone device. If configured to upload, when you save your Ridelog, it will be automatically uploaded to the HBC website. This app can also track your ride if you like, and upload a "gpx" file that will show a map on your Ridelog. Here are some sample screens from this new app:
Once again the HBC will be holding Ride Leader Training Socials. The OPS Committee along with the Ride and Ride Leadership Committee is working to improve our HBC rides and events. Over the years our rides have changed coordinators, leaders and riders which also changes the way they are run. In order to keep the quality, safety and enjoyment in our rides along with consistency we ask that all HBC leaders plan on attending a Ride Leader Training Social. It is our ride leaders that set the tone, safety and enjoyment on each HBC ride.
