Website Tips #3

BCI publishes a roster of our members here on the site.  This roster shows the members' names, email addresses and member numbers.  This roster can be viewed by anyone visiting the website, they do not have to be a BCI member.

To lessen the chances of the email addresses being harvested by email spammers, the roster is posted as a scanned pdf file, not a text file, so a spambot program scanning our site will only see an image file, not email addresses.

You may opt out of being included in this roster.  Be sure to sign up on the site and choose your roster option.  If you've already signed up you may edit your profile to opt out.

UPDATE - the roster is offline as 1/13/16 since spammers have already found it. We are working with TidyClub, the site that manages our membership data, to provide a more secure solution.  

Website Tips #2

Navigating the new is pretty intuitive, but like a new saddle it takes some time to "adjust"!  Here are a few tips for finding your ride:

1. If you want to see all rides by month, click on the calendar.  Rides and other activities are shown on their scheduled dates.  You can click calendar items to get details and the route slip.

2. If you want to look at all rides by day of week, jump to the bottom of any page on the website and you will find links to Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Friday rides.  Click the link and you will see all posted rides for that day with a link to the route slip.

3. If you want to see all rides and other scheduled events in chronological order, go to the Rides & Events link at the top of each page.  All events and links to route slips are here.

If you have suggestions about how to improve the site, email the webmaster.



Website Tips #1

The new has many features designed to make it easy for you to find the information you need.  Tip #1 is to check back here frequently for club news!   This news section of the site is titled "Pacelines", continuing the tradition of BCI's newsletter in a new delivery format.  From the days of printing, folding parties and snail mail, to online pdfs and now this new blog format, the goal is the same - keeping BCI members informed about the club and your friends' activities.
