  • This is the Ride Database and it's in beta, which is a techy term for saying it's good to use but not quite perfected yet!

    The idea is that we build up a list of rides based on club rides or ones you've done yourself that you think others might fancy giving a go either as a club ride or solo.

    What would be great is if we can categorise the rides in a consistent format which means we could then use the forum search (which is actually pretty powerful) to find rides of a certain criteria - eg length, town/village visited, hills. It may take us a while to get this spot on and I'm keen not to make this complicated, but as a starter I'm suggesting posts follow this format:

    <Ride name>
    <Towns and villages passed through>
    Miles: <actual mileage>
    Distance: Short|Medium|Long 
    Gradient: Flat|Undulating|Hilly
    Stop(s): <Coffee stop>
    <Link to route or attach GPS file>

    Short being <30 miles, medium being <60 miles, long being 60+

    I'll give it a go with a couple and would be keen to see what you think - please feedback and make suggestions!

  • Please note that many of the routes contained within this library will have been deleted, changed by there authors. But still some good ideas though.

    For my routes I update, remove etc so the Garmin links will not work, so if you have any problems, need one then just drop me a message with your intended destination and I'll sort one and include the .gpx file for other appliances.

    For you Garmin users there is a new version of Garmin Express now (2023) and is only useable on a PC not a tablet etc, Connect is your only option for routing on a these.
