If you would like to print out a Cue Sheet from our Cue Sheet Library, first go to the library by logging into the website with your Username/Password and click on the Cue Sheets Icon. Then browse through the various routes by selecting on the Start Locations listed on the left. Once you find the route, click on the Get Cuesheet Link.
If you want to print a Cue Sheet for another route not in the library, it must be a publicly available route on Ride With GPS. Go the the Cue Sheet Generator and enter the Ride With GPS Route Number.

Your spouse should first get his/her own username/password using the instructions found under the FAQ Question "I have a family membership but we only have one website username and password. Can I get additional website logins for the other family members?"
Then he/she can print her membership card using the instructions found in the FAQ Question "How do I print out my Membership Card?"
Just follow the instructions found under the FAQ Titled "How do I update my address, phone number or other such profile information?"

When rides are published on our website calendar, we always include a google map to the start location. However, when looking at the routes on our Route Library, the address is not readily apparent. I will consider a better way to clearly show the address on the Route Library.
To submit a ride report, simply do the following:
1. Create an eMail with the Subject being the Title of the Ride Report

3. Attach any pictures (up to 10) to the eMail. (Try to keep total size of eMail below 10 MB)
4. Send eMail to firstname.lastname@example.org
That's it - this will automatically create an article and post it to the website, and will automatically create a message board post with a link to the article.
IMPORTANT: The eMail must be sent FROM the email associated with your website account. (This is to prevent spam or fraudulent reports).
The process to post a ride is described here. Alternatively, you can also just send an eMail with the details of your proposed ride to our Ride Coordinator at this address: email@example.com
