TT Results / Age Categories

The TT Results now show position within age category.
I have specified age categories in 10 year increments: 20-29, 30-39…70-79. These can easily be changed or extended. Please let me know if there’s a convention for the younger riders.

I took birth dates from this year’s CCNBikes’ registrations and attempted to match names on the results database. Some failed (Jenn vs Jennifer, Alan vs Woody, etc.). But if you registered this year and if you have ever competed, you should get an age category position.

If your birthday isn’t on the database or if your age on race day falls outside of the above range I show {M|F}_Open.

Over time I’ll take registrations from other years to add more birth dates.


Emails / Women’s Rides

The weekly emails announcing the Tuesday rides are now only going out to those who specified interest in  the Women’s Rides.
If you are not receiving them and wish to, enter your email address in the Subscribe form on the top right of any club web site page. Assuming you are already subscribed, a link like this will appear:-

your.name@email.com is already subscribed to list Owen Sound Cycling Club. Click here to update your profile.

Click the link and follow the instructions

If you are receiving them and don’t wish to, use the update subscription preferences link which is in the footer of every club email. Un-check “Women’s Rides” under the list of interests.

Note: Although there is a similar interest for Time Trials, we are not currently using that. TT results go out to every one who is subscribed. The weekly emails announcing the Wednesday rides are also not affected.

TT Results Now Show Season’s Best

I have added logic to check for a seasonal best time on the TT results page.
First I check if the race time is the fastest ever (or equal fastest), and that the rider  has more than one result on that course. Then I display “PB.”

Then, if not a PB, I check if the race time is the fastest in the calendar year when the race was run  (or equal fastest) , and that the rider  has more than one result in that time. This assumes our season is a calendar year.  Then I display “SB.”

Of course a PB trumps an SB so I will never display both.

I’ve also laid the ground work for age divisions, but for that to work I need to enter everyone’s DoB. Over the years we have collected results for 366 riders (and teams). So I might only enter DoB for this year’s members (and future years as new members are entered) . I’ll probably have an “Open” division for those who don’t have a DoB on file.

 

 



We’re All Getting Older

At the recent executive meeting I was asked to make the font of this website larger.
I’ve done that. It should be larger (relatively) on all devices.
If that’s not enough, get new glasses or, on  a phone or tablet, you can always use the “pinch open” gesture to make everything bigger.


OSCC Mail List

We are switching to a new and better mailing program.

All who were members last year and those on Joanne’s women’s list have been subscribed to the new list.

We have linked CCNBikes to the new service. As members register on CCNBikes, they are automatically subscribed. Some of you already have, and it is retroactive.

We want to take the opportunity to house clean, but don’t want to lose anyone. To ensure we didn’t miss you or to adjust your preferences please  enter your email address in the Subscribe form on this site. If you are already subscribed to the new list, you will receive a link where you can adjust your preferences. Otherwise, of course, you will be subscribed. You can also sign up from our Facebook page.

We have set up a group for Joanne’s women’s rides and placed all female members on it. (If a couple shares the same email address and both are members, that email address will be on the list.)

We are also experimenting with a group for Time Trial results and might send weekly results only to that group. That would allow those of you not interested to opt out.



New Look for the Web Site

It’s still a work in progress, but should adapt better to mobile devices.
Also, there can be multiple header images. The image is chosen at random every time a page loads or when you click on the header. If you have any featuring club members or local rides, please let me (webmaster@owensoundcycling.ca) have them. Bear in mind that I have to crop them to approx. 1140 × 350 (i.e, wide and skinny) and I think 2MB is the max size for upload.
