    I averaged about 7800 miles a year for the past 6 years. I put it in my Palm Pilot after each ride, which I carry with me loaded with some local maps.

    jabike do you have a specific program you use for recording miles rode in your Palm? I have been looking for a specific program for my Palm to do just that. The maps is a great idea too. I am a huge Palm guy and always look for ways that I can use my Palm in every aspect of my life.

    if you can put excel files in your palm that is what I use on my computer, with a gps
    you can make your own maps some transfer to palms (palm pilot is next on the list)

    I have Documents to go and have thought about creating a spreadsheet with Excel. I was just looking for some type of freeware program that someone may have created for the palm. The GPS idea is a good idea and not something I had thought of.

    My method of keeping track of miles is very complicated. When I get in from a ride I write the number of miles I rode on the calendar.

    Hey, jcring, a friend of mine wrote something in about five minutes which gives me columns on my palm for date/time miles and comments that interfaces with an excel database.

    I tried keeping track but my crappy and cheap computer resets at every jump/crash. (I do mostly mountain biking, but I am looking at a Specialized Tricross).

    I use www.activebody.org. It's free and easy. It is also good for looking at monthly totals from previous years.

    On January 1st, before I went out for my ride, I wrote down the number of miles on my bike computers. The computer on my commute bike (I'm only an occasional commuter) is no longer recording my miles and there's no bike computer on the tandem.

    I use two "systems" - online I use bikejournal.com (free) and offline I use Shasta Software's Cyclistats. Cyclistats is more data-manipulative, and you can track weight, BP, cadence vs, profile, etc. Bikejournal.com is fun because you're ranked with about 10,000 other cyclists around the world. It definitely creates competitive motivation to move up the ranks, especially if you're mostly a solo cyclist like me.

    I generally do 3000 to 4000 miles yearly but Last year had some health issues & was off the bike a few months. This year I set a conservative goal of 2000 miles & hit that on August 30th. I also began logging miles at bikejournal.com this January. Its a free & easy way to keep a log. Don

    Bikejournal.com is exactly the type of program I have been looking for. Thank you for the tip.

    Just over 1,300 since May on my Roadbike computer. No commuting. Just highway riding. I've probably have about 300 on my general purpose bike.

    The only "negative" about bikejournal.com is feeling inadequate--no, insignificant--in comparison to the mileages of the top-listed riders there: as of this morning (9/12), #1 has 21,026 miles logged for the year, and #2 has 19,562. I have a mere 3,700--what those guys must do in a single week--and hope to hit 5,000, after doing 4,164 last year.

    Does anyone call BS on some of those top riders? The #1 rider is supposedly averaging 82.5 miles per day, every day, since the beginning of the year. I find that very hard to believe.

    Hasn't been a year yet. 800 miles. Don't trust cyclometer after accidently resetting data, luckily it was after had already copied data. Usually only ride during short commute.
