Hopefully nothing, but this is the internet…

The url to road.cc has changed in the last few days – hopefully if you’ve noticed at all it’s just that a little padlock symbol has appeared next to the road.cc url in your browser.

That's how it should be.

However, in a small number of cases if you’ve got road.cc bookmarked or it's cached in your browser you may experience a problem logging in - basically because you’re being directed to the old http version of the site.

You should be able to cure the problem by flushing your browser cache OR even more simply by opening road.cc in a new tab. Your bookmark should start to work as normal in a couple of days when the http version of the site becomes no longer accessible.

Although we haven't migrated road.cc's sister sites over to https yet some users of the road.cc Fantasy Cycling site may also be having problems logging in if they have recently changed their password - we're working on a fix to that right now.

If you have experienced any problems logging in we are really sorry… Google made us do it, even though from a security point of view it was a total waste of everybody’s time and may have caused you some difficulty accessing the site.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
