In my #cycling club, there's one person on the board who's responsible to create and maintain routes for the weekly rides and the cycling trips. AFAIK she's the only one doing it, as nobody else wants the job. She's been doing it for 8 years. She was training a replacement this year, but I heard this person resigned.
I've been thinking about offering my help... Might be an opportunity to steer them toward #FOSS tools. They're using RideWithGPS and the usual big corp services.
I've had a look at FacilMap.org for privacy-friendly collaborative map and route editing. It's pretty nice!
But I kid you not, with the average age of members being pretty high (a majority are enjoying retirement), some are still printing cue sheets for routes. On dead trees. 🤦♀️
FacilMap is supposedly able to export a route to a table, but I haven't managed to make it work.
A web service that generates cuesheets is maps.openrouteservice.org.
Do you know of any other?
@gustav @kawaiipunk @mastobikes thanks, but that's not what I'm looking for. It's not for myself, but for a cycling club. Most club members don't own a GPS computer. Many struggle with a smartphone. And I want to stress again that I'm looking for free and open source software (FOSS). Looking for an online route planner with GPX and cuesheet export, embedded map feature a plus. Basically a RideWithGPS.com replacement. I've mentioned two; bikerouter.de is my fav, but doesn't do cuesheets.
@jambamkin @heiglandreas @kawaiipunk @mastobikes It's been mentioned more than once in this thread (admittedly Mastodon does not make it easy to see all replies). Also, my original request was for a routing service that also produces a printable cue sheet (turn-by-turn directions), which Brouter doesn't support.
@trregeagle @mastobikes Just checked and Organic Maps does have an iOS version. Seems like track import does not support GPX, I'm unfamiliar with the supported formats. As for myself, I use a Linux phone...
In any case, the need is for a single person to plan group rides, then provide a GPS track to be uploaded to GPS devices or phones, alternatively provide a cue sheet to be printed on actual paper. Some members seem averse to technology. ;-)
I'm doing something similar with umap, @openstreetmap.fr based
Look at https://umap.openstreetmap.fr/it/map/giappone_673259 you can find my map.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
