 So awesome. Happy to see these happening and working so well with so many great local sponsors and supporters! Join WORCA and get out there and ride! No worries if you want to add Highside to the ride and do Hindsight instead of Lower Tunnel Vision. The badge will still record! Almost 200 riders did the first two virtual toonies. Socially well spaced and making smart riding decisions, of course.

 Looks like TF might still have the old alignment on HiHi. Hmmmm. Wonder of we could get that changed. We are all learning here! Never really planned on this whole COVID thing. Just appreciating the support from members and sponsors. Means alot.

 I've updated the HiHi alignment on TF, the old one was just different enough to have it not registering it looks like, sorry about that.

 We didn't get the badge last night either, said we didn't do hihi. The bartender mentioned a few people had already come in saying the same thing and we still got a free beer.

 Badges? I don’t need your steenkeen badges! If I can figure out how this works I will do this one. It’s my backyard.

 I had my attempt today, I did the route correctly but unfortunately the GPS showed that I rode above HiHi, Would be interested to know if this happens to anyone else? Can’t complain too much though, I’m still out riding!

 @Ben19: Interesting. We (WORCA) posted a protocol for editing your track with our toonie #1 a few weeks ago. Just page back on our IG account a few posts. We also posted it on our FB page. Basically, you login to you Trailforks and go to your ride log. Once there, you can find an "edit" button. Once there you can "add a trail" to your ride log. Then save the file, then refresh your ride logs and then, hit the "scan for badges" button and it should show up. Some phones seem to track a bit off due to floating GPS - iPhone 7 or lower seem the worst offenders. You really want the BADGE, as that gets you the free beer at Whistler Brewing. Your toonie sign-up on the WORCA site as a WORCA member enters you into all the draw prizes. Good luck!

 @Ben19: Ha! Same happened to me...I used TWO devices and still had the same happen to me as you. I recorded on my iPhone 7+, as well as my Lenzyne GPS, but both tracked north of HiHi...yet they recorded every other trail, I couldn't believe it. We probably rode about the same time and locked into satellites with weak signals. I did the same process as @whitehonky suggests, which works.

 @ridingloam: Thanks for the replies guys! I rode around mid day, I’ll definitely give that a go, as I would like that beer! Haha

 @flipfantasia: I manually went through and "recalculate stats & trail identification" then "rescan for badges" for all the ridelogs in that area for last 2 days. Lots of missing badges awarded now.
