I would like to get member's opinions on the CTC website.
What do you like?
What do you hate?
What are the things you can't do without?
What do you not use at all?
Any suggestions in general?
I think it needs a cleaner look and feel. I think it should have a better menu. I think it needs more intuitive.
It could be modernized. It is fairly unintuitive and not good on mobile. I would like to see easy to access ride information with maps and links to downloadable files for common cycling computers. At the end of the day it doesn’t really need to do that much but it is certainly due for an update.

Very excited to provide input......but when I tried the link I got a "Page not found. Error 404" . Nor could I find anything under Member Forums section regarding website overhaul. All of which pretty much parallels my experience trying to find ride maps the last few years.
Anyway maybe you could pass along my observation that, Ride. Maps. Are. Too. Hard. To. Find.
Maybe I'll come to more rides if I can find them

FYI - I’m getting a 404 error using your go to the forum link.
I don’t go to the website all that often, but went back to look at it again, and it all came back – I really like the website. Every time I see it I’m impressed that club members have done such a professional job on it. It’s very easy to navigate. Couple times Alice and I would look up a ride to find out what time or where the meeting place was – and the tabs would take you to exactly what you’re looking for – weekly ride, event ride, etc. I also enjoy seeing the candid photos on the home page, and across the top. I just love the way it looks now. Maybe that’s not what you wanted to hear, but I think all of you have done such an awesome job already. Does not look like my Kiwanis website or other organizations I belong to, it really looks polished.
The only thing I think that might be better handled is registration for couples. Alice and I are both members, but if one of us tries to register for us both, it never seems straight forward. We’re not really bringing guests if we bring each other, we’re both members? Yet we don’t want to have to go through all the effort to register separately. How is the information used whether the person coming is a guest or a member? Seems like I should just be able to register with my family membership, and how many members are coming and how many guests that are not members – if that breakdown is important.
Thanks for all you do for the club

Forum link is broken.
We need ride leaders to be able to post ride updates on the fly. I.E, because of storms will there still be a ride tonight?
We need access to people's actually phone#/email as opposed to their emergency contact.
I also thought detailed info about each ride seemed a little wanky. I.E, where the start time and the maps are.
The slideshow of pictures is WONDERFUL! The weather update in the left hand corner is nice. Having updates in the upper middle area is right where it should be.
It has been the same picture in the header ribbon for years. It's a great photograph, no doubt, but it has run it's course and is now quite dry.
Make. Maps. Easier. To. Find.
I would like to see the ride calendar and weekly ride information more prominently displayed and easier to navigate. In particular information about individual ride days. The site is not very mobile device friendly. I do like the registration process for events it’s very easy
Thank you for working to make a good web site better. Is it possible to have favorites, or auto generated personal messages. For example, I always want info on the Middlefield Ride on Wednesday night. Can the next ride and a kink to download the map automatically go to my email or send a text message about the upcoming ride.
Below are my observations and thoughts:
