Not sure if this has been discussed before but i couldn't find a thread using the search function - is there a map of where EMTB members are?
I'm not talking about addresses (bike thieves!) just approximate locations (like the first part of a postcode) so that we can see who else is in our area, to meet for rides and so on?

Would anyone else find this kind of functionality useful?
Or maybe just a thread somewhere with a list of members and their locations?

Well when we want to go out for a ride, we usually post in the Rideouts section of the forum. I’m always looking for a lift, as I don’t live very close to trails, and I can’t drive for pharmaceutical reasons. I have asked if anybody is in my area in that section, but no one is willing to give me a lift so far.

Found some actual maps used by other forums it seems:

K1600 Forum members map
ATN Forum Members map

Could be interesting if people just add themselves (e.g. on nearest town) and doesn't take any maintenance ...
That's exactly the sort of thing i was thinking of! Good find.
How can we set something like this up for here?
Can i do it (for example) or does it need a forum moderator?

@verysideways - Very familiar handle. How's it going Pete?
I knew Dan from the very old S2000 forum days. Don't think we have met but did an odd tour with Bachi once when I was still S2K'ing and PN was operational.
Best of luck with the business mate and my regards to Dan.

Going very well thanks! Almost everything has changed since those early days and we have made some great friends along the way. We're never going to make any money from it but it's a lot of fun :)

I've just created one following the example of the K1600 thing above - happy to use this if you like.

Nice - seems really easy to edit. Although there is already a misplaced point in the mid Atlantic :ROFLMAO:

Is it possible to back it up somehow? Just knowing that at some point it will suffer catastrophic editing :)

There is even an embed on site option, but it says "This map is not public, click the share button to allow others to view it." Which makes me wonder how I could add a point in the first place?

Looks good, although, can anyone delete stuff from it?

No idea - literally spent 5 minutes on it earlier. There may be better ways to achieve the end result, I just thought it was something I would find useful and thought others might too ?
