Late late query as ever. I too cannot get tcx files to load onto garmin connect. I do not have any text files to delete, I am just trying individual tcx files as courses. Anyone got a fix for this please?

Try this way. It works for my Edge Touring. Before exporting your routes, try to limit the name to 15 characters or less as the remaining characters will get truncated. Plug in your Garmin On the website, navigate to your route or ride. Go to the Export tab Click TCX Course or FIT Course. If your computer prompts you to save the file to a specific location, place it somewhere memorable like the desktop. Using the Finder, My Computer or other tool on your computer, open up the drive associated with the Garmin, usually labeled Garmin Open the Garmin folder located inside the Garmin drive. Click/drag the exported file from your desktop to the NewFiles folder. Safely remove the Garmin (Eject on an Apple machine) and unplug it from the computer After powering it on click the Courses icon and locate your route

Thanks Tony, I gave up on Garmin connect and did as you say, plugged both sat navs into the desktop and copied tcx files across into courses folder on both the edge tour and the 705, both now appear to have the files on and they seem to load up ok so I am hoping it is a glitch with the Connect App. I had tried the 15 character renaming of tcx files with no underscores etc but that didn't help. I only use tcx these days Garmin say there is about a 100 fold increase in waypoints compared to gpx so I was v keen to get it sorted, even if I procrastinated up to the day before the event! See you in the drinks tent tomorrow no doubt!

Canel path verry narrow in places. I would at least miss the bit after you turn left up another canel just after Warick by pass and cut off corner. Also need to go diwn steps at start so could route to join canel later on.

There are about 15 steps down to the canal. It’s a little narrow to the cafe for 400 metres. Pas Hatton Locks is wider and scenic. Yes it’s narrower on the last part, but a gentle walk for maybe 600 metres if you wish and does provide a less trafficked way into Warwick. Whatever you choose take care

At tonight’s cycle jumble I will be selling cycling fillets in a range of sizes. They are £5 each and all sold in aid of Red Rubber Ball charity who support the education of young people in Kenya. Please come and have a try on - from 6.30pm onwards

Stephen Rickard2023-08-08 15:25:32tcn2023

Fillets = gillets 😂

Stephen Rickard2023-08-08 22:29:15tcn2023

Hi all, thanks to all those who bought Gillets this evening. We had to pack away for the quiz tonight. We will put the stall out again tomorrow afternoon say 5-6 pm for those that missed us . We have quite a few Gillets left for sale.

Tandem Games now Thursday evening at 7pm : better chance of dry grass.

Stephen Rickard2023-08-09 17:22:32tcn2023

Hi , come on down to HQ now for a cup of tea or coffee and buy a very nice gillet for charity for 5 pounds only.

Neil Wheadon2023-08-09 23:17:54tcn2023

Hi folks. With the traffic lights on the roundabout, please can you use the cycle path or wait at the lights. Please don’t use the pavement. We had to deal with a local resident today complaining about pavement riding, and as everyone is on a tandem, it’s not difficult to find the group responsible. Thankyou neil

Morning coffee stops on the next 2 days.

Neil Wheadon2023-08-10 14:50:52tcn2023

Morning coffee stops on the next 2 days. Friday will see us head NW to Henly-in-Arden . There is nothing really on route until Henley (thinking about the short especially) Therefore Ron and Linda along with Gareth and Gill will be manning an impromptu bun stop at Sambourne. There will be a choice of Waitrose finest cakes as I emptied their cupboards this morning. No coffee/tea, so take a drink. There is a largish green and a seat. Provided some local busy body doesn’t object they will be there 10:00 -12:00. Look out for the TC pendant and a blue umbrella

Neil Wheadon2023-08-10 14:57:52tcn2023

Saturday sees a coffee and cake stop at the Mecure Warwickshire Walton Hall. It’ll be in the hall as you pass the hotel (past reception) Again 10:00 - 12:00. They are using coffee urns so not as good quality but faster (I hope) this stop is about 15.5km, so ideal. Enjoy both . This is the East ride

Neil Wheadon2023-08-10 15:01:56tcn2023

The main hall got double booked for Saturday night, I’m afraid, so we have to vacate by 10:00. This gives enough time to wash up etc and will include the ladies showers. The good news is that as a thankyou for being understanding, I’ve been given access to a room under the main stand and area by the finishing line with picnic benches for Saturday night, so a bit of a bonus

Stephen Rickard2023-08-11 16:38:26tcn2023

We have some Gillet left if you want. Silver vw van centre of field pitch 51. Come this afternoon. Thanks Steve

Stephen Dee2023-08-13 06:38:00tcn2023

Did anyone pick up two Tupperware boxes from thf hall? Please let me know other wise I will be In Doghouse when I get home
