Berkshire Covid Cycling Challenge

Postby CyclingGuy » 8 Feb 2021, 8:17pm

So after being bored over the past two lockdowns as I can't get out and participate in the British Cycle Quest I decided to make up my own version based in my home county of Berkshire to give local riders something to aspire to and motivate them in these challenging times.

If you fancy having a go at it, it's completely free to participate in and all the info can be found at https://www.cyclinglabs.net/bbq

Strange, it's working for me on multiple devices / browsers.

Interested in knowing if anyone else is having problems, if so what browser etc you are using.

Interesting - Silk is an Amazon specific browser only on their Fire Tablets which I don't have access to unfortunately.

I will try to investigate - I can only suggest an alternative browser for the time being.

I suggest making the website display something without being allowed to run scripts on the visitor's browser, else any permission denied kills it. Broken in Firefox on Android too.

It works in Firefox on my Android phone - Do you have a script blocker installed?

The whole site is Wordpress based as I'm no web developer so I'm not sure how to overcome this at present.

More investigation required.

OK, after a bit of research I've switched off a caching plugin that I'm told might be causing a problem.

I'd be grateful if any of the people who couldn't access it before could try again and report back as I can't get this error to occur on any of the machines / browsers I have.

Thanks in advance.
