Club Membership in Ride with GPS

The BBC Executive Board is pleased to announce that it has recently decided to provide a new benefit to the Club’s membership by purchasing a club subscription to “Ride with GPS” (RwGPS), a route mapping internet site. This is not a replacement to the current club's cue library, but rather an added benefit.

Many of you have probably been directed to this site as some of our ride leaders have been posting such links on club ride announcements. By subscribing as a Club to this innovative technology, we gain a place to store as many routes as ride leaders wish to create and have all routes viewable and easily found on our club account.

Gaining access to the club account requires that each person have a personal RwGPS account which is available free of charge. The process of establishing your access to the club account begins with logging in to this website and following the link in the panel titled "Ride With GPS Enrollment Invitation Link " which will appear in the left column of all pages (the text is not an active link here).

If you already have a personal RwGPS account the link will either take you right into your account or ask you to sign-in to it. If you do not already have a personal RwGPS account, there is a path to establish one. No matter where you end up, note the orange bicycle logo on the upper left of the screen. That will take you to the home page and you should see the BBC logo with “Baltimore Bicycling Club” underneath (may need to scroll down to it). If you do not see this, click on the above link again. When you click on the BBC logo you will gain access to the club account. 

As a general member you may search the route list, view any route, and print cue sheets as “pdf”. You can also download the route to your smart phone or other cycling navigation devices, such as Garmin Edge, which will provide turn by turn cues for the chosen ride. General members cannot create routes on the club account, add other routes to the file, or make any changes to club routes.

If you wish to create routes to use for leading Club rides, you will need to request that “route manager” authority be added to your profile. You may request this authority by email to: John McCauley.

In order for us to create a database of routes that will allow finding rides easily, route managers will be asked to agree to conform to certain standards and naming conventions which will be provided later.

The following club members are the administrators for this account: John McCauley, John Isaacs, Larry Kenney & Nabil Ali. 

Please utilize the help pages included in the RwGPS website and watch their instructional videos. If an answer is not readily found, please email your question or concern to: John McCauley.
