Website - - Ride start locations

Website - - Ride start locations

Would it be possible to add the actual street address beside the start location?  I realize general directions to the start location  are listed (which is great) but I think having the actual street address would be a plus for anyone mapquesting or GPS'ing the start location.  I would be more than happy to look each of these up and provide to someone to add to the website.   Just let me know your  thoughts and/or who I should contact about this. 

Thanks for listening,
Diane

Re: Website - - Ride start locations

I'm with you. I really think the ride start locations should come into the 21st century.
I'd love to see a list that actually reflected the start locations of rides that are being led. Other locations could be listed as alternates.
I don't think there have been many more than 20 locations being used by leaders over the last 5 years.
Each location should have a street address and other specific details about which corner, which parking lot, etc. Noting bathroom/water options and parking availability is very helpful.
Also a googlemap link is very helpful to guide riders to you.

If I began updating ride locations where would they go on the site?

Re: Website - - Ride start locations

Hi All,
I agree that the Start Location page needs to be brought into the internet world. What would be the cleanest way to do an upgrade would be to start with the list of ride starts and make the name of each ride start a hot button. When you click on Oregon Ridge Park for example, the hot button takes you to a Google maps page with the address and a map of the location. I would not do every location on the Start Locations page but just do the most active ones first. Then add any other ones as they come up in the ride calendar.
If Bob Wagner wants to volunteer to go through the ride calendar to pick out the 20+ most active ride starts, I am sure the Board would be glad to have him do the work. Will Hudson will need to do the programming of course.
I will cc the Board on this suggestion.

I doubt there needs to be any programming, Ed. If you or I had editing access to the start locations list, we could just add links to the google locations and put in notes.  My rando ramble version: http://g.co/maps/scvjr

Hi Bob,
I cc'd the Board on this one. I don't have any problem with you having the editing privilege to work on the Ride Locations page. But like everything else in this club that involves making a change, the Board has to approve it first. Working in Joomla is not too difficult; my practice uses the program for our web site and I have been "under the hood".

Re: Website - - Ride start locations

Seems fine. I'll work on it, HOWEVER, this project will in some ways be a project completed by all of our ride leaders.
I know the 8 ride starts I use, but most of the others I do not know. I will need input from ride leaders for that.   -B
