If I wish to extend a Calender event, do I use Google Maps (walking) to calculate the additional distance or can I use a GPS track such as RideWithGPS or Strava?

Well, as of this weekend's AGM you can do either.

However, whether the ECE man is ready for the change is something you need to check with him on.

I suspect the whole DIY/ECE team will need to work through the procedures and create some guidance for mandatory over the coming weeks/months.

But, whatever, talk to Martin!
Right! What's next?

Ooooh. That sounds like a daft idea.  I am in!

No problem with mandatory route for ECE  :) all I would ask is as the route is de facto pre checked just enter the Strava / Ride with GPS / Garmin connect etc. route url in the google maps box on the entry form I don't need to confirm it's ok  :)

what I'd like to avoid is a pre and a post ride gpx for me to approve just a link to the route on the entry form (assuming of course it comes up to the distance) is fine

I can't of course mandate the calendar leg but I'm sure riders will follow it if they go down the mandatory ECE route and i'm willing to allow unplanned diversions as always
