Adding an event to the road.cc calendar

If you're a registered user on road.cc you can now add events to the site. Whether you're organising a big sportive, a club run or just a turn-up-and-go Sunday morning pootle, get it in the calendar!

How do I add an event to the calendar?

You need to be a registered user of the site and you need to be logged in to add an event.

If you're not registered yet, click here to register. If you're registered but not logged in, you can enter your details in the bar at the top of the page.

Once you're logged in, head back to the calendar page and click on the big 'add your event' link at the top. The one that brought you here. Or you can click here.

What kind of events can I add?

You can add any event you like, so long as it's related to cycling and you don't mind people you don't know showing up. Sportives, Audax rides, club runs, social rides, cycle jumbles, a slideshow about your cycle tour to the Andes... as long as it involves bikes it can go on the calendar. When you add an event it'll get checked by a member of the road.cc team before it goes live.

Things to be aware of

If you're adding an event, please check that it's not already there. It sounds obvious but it's easily forgotten.

You need to make sure that you have permission to publicise the event, and use the text and images you upload to the site. If you've written the words and taken the photo (or designed the logo) then you'll be fine. If you're taking the information from another source, (eg another website) then that's generally not fine.

When you add an event, there's a field to specify whether it's of interest regionally or nationally. Please be honest about the reach of the event, because it'll make the calendar more useful. A bike jumble in Kent isn't going to interest road.cc users in Northern Ireland...
