@John-Bowen I am also in the NE USA. If you have any questions, please reach out and I will be glad to help.
Long time rider, currently riding a 2008 Victory Vision that has seen some better days but is still a workhorse.
I had a weird issue with the questionnaire failing to go to the next page while on page two. It took several attempts and about an hour but I was finally able to complete it.
I have at least 20 route in my public folder with at least another 20 to be cleaned up, updated and published. Some are just nice rides on the backroads of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the like, while others have destinations mid-point such as Motorcycle museums, other scenic points of interests, winding rides to good food, and the such.
To the other members question about searching for routes close to a point of interest, I was thinking about this and I wonder if it's possible to search within a gpx route for a gps coordinate close to what the person is searching for?
For example I have a route that I call the "PA Tail of the Dragon", not as good as the original Tail of the Dragon down South but it does has some nice twisty roads. I also have another route that is called "Skeeter's BBQ" that actually shares some of the other routes roads and the two destinations are about 30-40 minutes apart.
So if I wanted to search a library of routes for Shamokin Dam, PA then I would get a hit on both of these routes as the dam and is close by in each route. Does that make sense?
You would need to be able to convert the search term into a GPS coordinate and the user would have to set a max range, then parse through the gpx files for a match. I imagine this would take some decent computer power to scale up though.
Not to pile on with additional ideas, but is there a way to generate thumbnails when you mouse over a route? I have to open a lot of routes to see where they are actually located. Or at a minimum, add a details/comments section to the route that can be displayed or searched by that includes the locations, point's of interests, or other key information to make identifying where the route is or goes?
Thanks, I will submit the required information later this evening. looking forward to learning and working with the group.
There are almost no routes for the Northeastern United States. It would be great if there was a easy way to have routes submitted for approval to the library. While I mostly ride in in Pennsylvania, I have numerous day routes for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, etc. I have several routes in other states I made for a 4 day ride.
I guess I am not clear on what constitutes as an excellent route worthy of the library.
Love the site and app. Use it almost weekly.
