Rides Module

This system allows TC members to add rides in the form of GPX files and/or PDF route sheets and allows members to view the rides.
You need a TC websitre login account to access the rides database system.

It is a prototype system at the moment.

To View a Ride

There is a "Select the Rides" entry form at the top of the rides main page that is used to search for rides matching the criteria entered. To search for rides enter the appropriate search criteria and click on the green "Search" button. The list of selected rides will appear below. By default the group will be set to your local regional group to show just those rides in the database. Set this to a blank entry to see all the rides available.
The MapReference entry should be a GPS latitude,longitude number pair.
The Postcode should be the first 2, 3 or 4 characters of the postcode. The system will look for any ride with 69 miles of the location given.

Click on the green "Search" button to view the rides matching the selection crteia entered. There may be multiple pages of rides. The Page fields "Start", Prev" and "Next" buttons can be used to naviage through these pages and the "Order" selection changes the order of viewed rides.

You can now click on the rides picture of one of the rides listed to view the complete ride details, a map of the ride and download the GPX and/or route sheets if available.
The route is shown on an OpenCyclesMap. You can interact with this map by long or double clicking on it. Once done you can pan the map with the mouse/finger and zoom in and out (buttons, mouse wheel or finger pinch).
You can show the map in full-screen mode using the full screen button at the top right of the map.

There is also a notes entry box at the bottom of the page to add notes to this ride.

This is an initial prototype system. We hope to add better ways of search for rides including a clickable map for ride searches.
We also hope to add features of interst such as cafes, playgrounds, tourist sites etc. But we have limied time so don't hold your breath!
If there are any features you would like to see please contact webgroup@tandem-club.org.uk.
