From The Prettyboy Dam Bridge will be closed for installation of concrete crossbeams to secure and strengthen the gatehouse on the dam.

The $5.5 million project, which will be partially underwater, will begin Monday and take about two months, according to the Baltimore City Department of Public Works.

A portion of Prettyboy Dam Road will be closed from the Armacost Road and Spook Hill Road intersection to the intersection of Prettyboy Dam and Falls roads. That portion of Prettyboy Dam Road will only be open to local traffic.

The detour for this portion of Prettyboy Dam Road is Armacost Road to Falls Road.

Roads mostly dry and widening

Forum: Ride Reports

I rode a nice 30 mile loop today with Roger.   We went up to Butler via Dover and Mantua Mill, then back over Cuba and Jerome Jay.
The roads are much wider than on Wednesday - especially the east sides and the north sides from sun melt.  There are some wet areas due to melt drainage on the roads.  At 10am there were no black ice areas and the only snow on the roads were caused by vehicles riding against the snow banks.
Saturday looks like it will be better riding yet, but watch for cars on the narrower roads and some corners are still hard to see around.

I rode yesterday from Meadowood to Oregon Ridge and back (16 wonderful outdoor miles).
The lanes are somewhat narrow and edges irregular with snow mounds so you have to pay attention.
Otherwise yesterday the roads were generally dry.

Several questions about the cue library

The acquiring, updating and maintaining rides is a very large job.
The advent of GPS bike computers that can store routes will also have to be addressed.

The Cue Library needs to allow multiple uploads for each entry:
- Print cuesheet
- gpx or course xml format for gps bike computers
- Detour notice link to detour cuesheets
- Ride starts specified by Lon/Lat (easy paste into google/mapquest/...)

Uploads and edits should not require the entire entry be reloaded.

A way needs to be implemented to link library entries with each other, to the calendar, and to the forum.  Then forum discussion of a cuesheet can occur (say prior to a ride as members choose a ride via the forum) and a calendar scheduled ride can link to the library cuesheet.

Any volunteers?

Club already has a filled post for this: Gene Bayer        Cue Sheet Library


Anybody responding to my other issues in posts 1,2,3 on this thread (or should I make them each separate threads)?

* The "Starting point Google map" seems to load Mapquest locations for some starting points.  How do we link into the Starting Point database to add these to our library entries?
Meadowood Park Google map point seems to be The Cloisters and not the park.

* Would it be possible to insert standard forum codes in library descriptions in addition to html?

Editing some of my entries to correct the start points is a pain.  Maybe my html is not what it should be.  To do the edit: Download the cuesheet (I need it to make an edit change); paste in the html for the google map startpoint and browse/open the cuesheet file; update the library entry;  ...but the html seems not to be correctly displayed so I browse/open the cuesheet file again and update (with no edit change to html);  and now google start point is correct.
Any hints on what I need to do.  How about a startpoint database which the cuesheet author can edit/add.

(That download of cuesheet seems to trigger a limit warning, even though I am the author of the cuesheet)

Several questions about the cue library
Category: Social

More comments on the layout of the Cue Library page:

* Over 17 lines at the top of the page are dedicated to file upload instructions.  These should be at the bottom of the page.  People looking for cuesheets are not interested in these instructions.

* The "Search Repository" button should be above the Containers.  It is now hidden at the bottom of the page.

* The "Folders/Files" is too technical.  Will there ever be more than 2 Folders (below 50 miles and >=50 miles) per county?  Instead I think each county should have Under 50 and 50+ shown on this page.  Then user does not have to do another page load.
Then instead of "Files" they can be labeled "Cuesheets"

...John Busteed and Will have already transferred 100 of cue sheet central's 200 rides...

A great service doing the transfer.  Checking what is uploaded I find many of my cuesheets had not been maintained well by me on cuesheetcentral.  So I am going through and correcting those older cuesheets which I had uploaded to cuesheetcentral and which have been transferred to the new library.  Several comments:

* Who controls access to cuesheets for edits/deletes/uploads?  This is an issue where a cuesheet might be changed inadvertently or otherwise.  See next point.

* I am finding that cuesheets which I had already put into the Cue Library for upcoming rides I will lead are being duplicated due to the transfer process.  I am just keeping the ones I already loaded since they came from my local cue library and deleting the others.

* The "Starting point Google map" seems to load Mapquest locations for some starting points.  How do we link into the Starting Point database to add these to our library entries?
Meadowood Park Google map point seems to be The Cloisters and not the park.

* There is no way to edit the title of a cuesheet (correct spelling, etc.).

* Could we have an option to control the number of cuesheet titles shown per page so the user doesn't have to flip between pages?

* Would it be possible to insert standard forum codes in library descriptions in addition to html?

* I don't think there should be a download limit for user who submitted the cuesheet.  A pain to be correcting stuff and then get "Sorry, your download limit has been reached".

Fate of cuesheet central?
Category: Social

Two things greatly missed on cuesheetcentral and missing from the website:

1. Proper search functions (Name, ride leader, location, ...)
The ride class filter just isn't adequate.

2. Selection of a cuesheet for a ride to lead opens a lead this ride dialogue.
Rides and cuesheets need to have tighter integration.

OLD Ride Schedule missing February Rides
Category: Social

All right folks, you can now see what is happening to the old ride schedule.
The rest of February's rides are not displayed.  But we do have a little blue indicator "Read more...>>"

Since old rides were not transferred to the new calendar, at least allow the rest of February's rides (and the 2nd half of March when we get there).
