For years we’ve struggled to make the NSC site easier to use so that you are not dependent on just a couple of people to make posts, and I think we finally have it. Visit the traditional North Shore Cyclists site at http://nscyc.org. This mobile site is at http://nscrides.org
Facebook group and Facebook events
I’ve designed the mobile site to compliment the Facebook group, which has gone a long way toward making NSC egalitarian. However, we have taken very little advantage of the Facebook events tab. Any of the almost 500 members of our Facebook group can post a planned event or an impromptu invitation.

Events calendar on this site
On this site, I have embedded a NSC events calendar using Google Calendars. Unlike the outdated Drupal events calendar module on the traditional NSC site, our Google calendar allows users to create repeating events. For example, when Paula posts the Monday evening ride this spring, she can set it up to continue until the end date in September, and she can easily change the start times. The NSC Google calendar also makes it easier to post impromptu events.
A feed from the Google calendar creates an upcoming events list in the menu column. There is also a link to view the actual calendar on the site.
All club officers and ride leaders have been granted permission to post to the NSC calendar. Others who wish to post events to the calendar please reply to this post.
I am in the process of converting the former North Shore Cyclists blog on WordPress to a mobile platform, mirroring the NSC site.
To get it going, many of the links will take you to the North Shore Cyclists site, but will soon link to minimal pages on this WordPress site.
