As of 10am EST the software implementing the OCTRA Ride Calendar has been disabled. The website has been experiencing periodic heavy traffic resulting in slow performance and the occasional stoppage. I have traced the problem to an interaction between the “My Calendar” plugin we have used for years and the Google Web Crawler that indexes our site. After considerable effort trying to get these two software agents to “play nice” I finally decided to pull the plug on MyCalendar.

In the meantime, on the same page, i.e. Ride Calendar, there is a list of ride names with dates plus the downloadable PDF calendar with details on each ride. As Ride Flyers come in from the ride managers they will be posted and each item in the ride list will be linked to its respective flyer.

This may be sufficient. Let me know what features you miss and can’t live without.
