Android App for Tracking Bike Rides?

I know these apps exist, but I am waaaaaay too new at the whole Android thing to know what I am supposed to be searching for on the "Play Store" thingie.

I just want an app that will track me via GPS put my bike route onto a map as I ride.

What exists out there? What do you use?

Thanks, youse guys!

I use Map My Ride. Have always worked, so haven't felt the need to try any other, but I know a lot now use Strava, but I am not interested in virtually competing with people who may or may not actually be on a bicycle.

Another My Tracks user. Start a Google account and you can send your data directly into a spreadsheet. I don't use the feature but it will also link to sensors for heart rate, cadence, and power output.
