Tandem Club GPX/TCX Rides list

As a club we have many organised rides including national and international large events as well as local regional group rides. Quite a few of these have been made available to members using route sheets and more recently GPX/TCX files for sat navs. This is a database of all of these rides allowing you to view and download GPX/TCX files and route sheets where available.

We are slowly adding all of our rides to this database. If any member is willing to help that would be great ! These rides are provided on an as is basis if you ride them you do so entirely at your own risk. The Club, its officers and ride organisers accept no responsibility for loss, damage to property, accident, injury or death, that may occur, however caused, whether by negligence, deliberate act or otherwise. Any RO/member can add rides to make it easy for members to access them.

You can add rides using the Add Ride link. You must have a website login account to do this.By default the Selection criteria will be for rides in your own group. Set this to "All" to list all rides and click on the "Search" button. Some assistance with using this system is at: Help. You can just view and add places of interest using PlaceList. Note that when you have added a ride you can view it with a background map and proceed to add places of interest. This system is still a work in progress. Please feedback issues/ideas to: webgroup@tandem-club.org.uk.
