Download options "greyed out"

Hi. I usually create a ride on my desktop computer and save it. Then open on my iPhone 5s and create a .tcx course file, that I then sync with my Wahoo Elemnt Roam.

Today I couldn't select .tcx course and when I looked closer, see that option is sort of "greyed out" on the phone. The radio dot isn't full circle, see screen shot. This is a "something changed" condition.

I managed in the end by creating the .tcx course file on my desktop and emailing it.

Would you mind having a look at this please? It's not a showstopper however would be more inconvenient without access to a desktop PC as when away from home on tour. And if something is broken, who knows what the next manifestation will be ?-)

Paved option rules?

How does c.t decide what counts as paved please?

Context of the question is I rode the Hart to Haswell Walkway as part of a longer loop a couple of days ago however it's this bit that is https://cycle.travel/map/journey/135543 that prompted the question. In the OSM there is no value specified for the surface, see image below.

What is actually on the ground isn't paved. Some of it is loose matchbox sized stone, some is muddy puddles, some is wooden boardwalk. Whilst it was passable on a touring bike with care, I'd have been carrying my road bike. I last rode it in the summer of 2017 on the touring bike and it was just as rough, but drier!

The reality is it was probably compacted when first constructed. I'd probably tag it as unpaved now, as the more precise tags seem to refer to the surface as it is intended to be, and do not take in to account neglect.

I am planning to update the OSM surface tag by the way.

Problem adding a picture to a travelogue post

Hi, just added a travelogue post to the Birmingham city guide.

I clicked on the image icon above to add a .jpg, browsed to the image location, selected the file however an error message popped up stating "Sorry, that's not a valid file". Curiously, it was possible to upload it in .png format.

Circular day ride in Birmingham

I put this ride together so my friends in the small-wheeled-bike community could use the train to travel from home to the start and back. It's mostly off road and is essentially a circular ride from New St station to Sutton park and back.

9 riders navigated the route, on a mixture of Dawes Kingpins, Raleigh Twenties, a Brommie and a Royal Enfield Revelation. Mostly folders.

Moira, NW Leicestershire

Hi Richard

Could you please add Moira, NW Leicestershire to the "City" list? I know there are listed towns close by, however it is specifically Moira that is at the Heart of the New National Forest, has the YHA and the Hicks Lodge cycling centre.

Thanks

Graham
