    Another year, the season begins

    Last year I bought my bike with the intention to get out and ride a lot. For various reasons, I didn't get out as often as I had wanted but it was good to get out on the wheels again. I had bought an odometer and some knick-knack hoping to boost my interest and keep me motivated but it just didn't cut the mustard. So this winter I bought a GPS, and started Geocaching. So, one of the beauties of the unit is that it plots your course and allows you to see exactly where you;ve been and then you can upload the route onto your computer and get all the info. Been out for a couple of rides this year and am riding about 10~11km's.

    I got the Magellan Triton 500 on ebay for about 75 bucks. It really keeps me motivated. I tie it onto my back pack and forget about it. Then when I get home upload it and have fun watching where I've been. I also carry my camera more now, that keeps me motivated too. It slows me down but I'm not in a race so.

    Cheers to all!

    keep it up, do what ever it take to keep you going. I find that scheduling a week tour in the summer keeps me motivated, I want to be in good enough shape to enjoy the vacation.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I use my Android G1 and track my ride with RideTrac. I can download into my computer and upload to my google maps. I'm looking for a way to mount my camera on my bike. I did see a guy that uses a small camera in his helmet when he rides his motorcycle. Might be cool to video my rides.

    Hi Moose, I am thinking of building this for my handy cam.

    Looks simple and fool proof.
