Online bike log recommendations?

I've routed out my map and taken my maiden journey today. Now I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for an online bike log. I guess I'm just looking for something that will let me put in my milage and notes.

I'm all ears.

And if you are going to log miles there, please join the Bike Forums team. We were in 19th place & steadily moving up for a while but recently fell all the way back to 26th! I think someone pulled out & took their miles with them? Don

Good Luck,

I thought about using a spreadsheet as well but I want to log the miles when I get to work and then when I get home. This way I don't have to carry a floppy disk with me or email myself twice a day.

I have joined the bikejournal community and when I get to work I will place myself in the bikeforums team.

Thanks to all for the suggestions.

I used www.bikejournal.com for a few months, then wondered why and just use a spreadsheet now.

Online journals are good if you like to compare yourself against others. I'm just tracking this for my own amusement, so I dropped out of bikejournal.

How do I join the Bike Forums team (do you want my 1900 miles)? It didn't jump out at me.
