Ride Start Locations (...those that are frequently used by the EBC) 

last updated:  Feb. 14, 2019  

Duplication can be prone to error. Nevertheless, we need 3 partially duplicated modules to properly convey our common ride start locations. Some locations, like MTB start points for example, cannot be conveyed by using street addresses, so in those cases we direct the user to our map page. Here are the start-location modules in order of precedence:

  EBC Start-Locations Interactive Map  Highest precedence, precision and reliability
  the table below, on this page  Has more info, but location not as precise
  the event "Locations" pull-down menu 
...that appears towards the bottom of the "Create Event" screen in the Ride & Event Calendar
 Sometimes has errors when converting a postal address to an exact location


Please notify Webmaster@ElmhurstBicycling.org with any updates and corrections as soon as possible. Please make sure they are well-tested. Web admins work in concert with the Ride Captain on this page.
