Club Calendar Instructions

GoogleCalendar.jpgIn December 2015, the club calendar was migrated to google calendar. Upcoming events will appear on the OBC home page, and the full calendar can be viewed on the club calendar webpage on the OBC website. In addition, it is possible to import the club event schedule into most desktop and mobile calendar applications. Instructions are below for the most common applications. 

There are actually two calendars used by the OBC: 

  1. Club Events for all events other than group rides
  2. Group Rides (provided by RideWithGps)

Once you've added the various calendars to your application, navigate to June. If you see the Rideau Lakes event, Sunday, Saturday and Tuesday rides, you know you have added both correctly.

Google Calendar Users

If you are an existing google calendar user, you can add the club calendars to your google calendar as follows:

  • From a desktop browser, go to the club calendar page, then click the "add to google calendar" icon: GoogleCalendarAdd.jpg
You will be prompted to add both calendars.

If you use google calendar on a mobile device, you must first add them using a desktop browser as per the instructions above.  Once you add them on your desktop browser, both will appear on your mobile device next time you sync your google calendar. You may have to navigate to your calendar settings to actually enable them.
