CTC Coventry & CTC Rugby rides for the week beginning Sunday 16th September 2018


  • You may have noticed that BikeHike and other websites that use Google Maps are not behaving as they were originally intended. This has been caused by Google Maps changing their licensing arrangements and there is quite a furore raging on the web.
  • I apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, although the matter is completely out of our hands. However, if you press Shift-F5 when the route creation page of Bike Hike is displayed it will cause the maps to be displayed with Open Street Maps and temporarily overcomes the problem.

Coventry Sunday 16th September
