    If you have a smart phone there are a number of apps to do this. If not any bike computer will do it. A wireless one from a discount / membership store is what I put on my son's bike for less than $20.

    Bike computers are not expensive, and most bike stores have them for sale. I have a wired one that I like:

    There are also wireless ones, as mentioned above. Either type is easy to install. There are several manufacturers to choose from too, with a range of prices. You'll find folks here that like every different kind of model and manufacturer.

    Welcome to the Bike Forum, and I wish you success in meeting your goal. My personal goal wasn't necessarily a weight loss number, but rather to be a daily bike commuter to work. In the process, I have lost 40 pounds and controlled my cholesterol and blood pressure. Ride safe and have fun!

    A "cyclometer" (i.e., computer) that shows trip miles and an odometer is all you need. Shouldn't have to spend more than $25.
