It started being about racing, then biking and racing, then I added commuting, then I relocated overseas...

I like to take a camera on bike rides, sometimes. Click 1st icon in my sig for my biking photo-blog.
There's nothing too impressive there (only had this site up since July) but there are some good shots to be found.

... I'm so 'retro' I even used frames when designing the gallery pages. LOL

Yes...my site has been active for many years and is of general cycling interest. I submit Freewheel'n articles to a local cycling club's newsletter. These are also part of my web site.

Go to: http://geocities.com/repete_bike

There you will find not only Freewheel'n, but also Quibbles, Quale and Quotes as well as my ride schedule that I lead for two cycling clubs.

Always looking for interesting articles to include and welcome anyone to submit a piece of their own.

I've just started by tossing out a calendar of my workouts. I get folks asking to ride but not knowing when I am riding. I figured this was the easy way.

http://www.nomadvw.org/biking/calendar

I will be adding route descriptions and pictures to routes and a little more. I just finished up the calendar last night.

Those of you who have websites ... what did you use to create them?

Did you use a program like FrontPage or something like that?
Did you code them in HTML?
Did you find someone's page you liked and basically used that code?

My father designed mine several years ago, and I would like to reconstruct it to make it a bit more my style, but I'm not sure exactly how to go about it.

http://www.w3schools.com/html/

these are the 2 sites that i got all my code from. my site is all done in html in notepad, and its pretty basic stuff. mostly just links, words and pics. pretty easy, just time consuming.

A little of everything. I've used Dreamweaver, PHP script sites, my own HTML, and a host of other places. The new calendar program I am using is MySQL and PHP enabled using its parent "Webcalendar" (http://webcalendar.sourceforge.net/)

I will also be incorporating the site http://www.magnalox.net to display routes over top of the Google Maps API for Japan for the local riders to plan routes.

SteveFox gave two really good links. I'd also like to suggest that you learn CSS (http://www.w3schools.com/css/). CSS makes it easy to control the look and feel of your page from a single file, without having to touch the HTML at all.

A really cool site to look at for ideas is css zengarden. It's a contest where everyone starts with the same simple HTML page and is only allowed to modify the CSS to get the results you see in the "select a design" column. All very good stuff.

You can also copy CSS layouts from glish.com. Good luck!

A wysiwyg like FrontPage, MS Word or Dreamweaver would be your easiest method to design a webpage or pages. Writing in HTML or Javascript would be much more time consuming, but a great learning experiance. Htmlkit is a great free program for writing your own. By the term reconstruct, I percieve that want want to create a new site. I would recommend using whatever program is avaliable to you. the cost of Dreamweaver is equal to a lot of bike parts.

If you are looking to just update the pages your father has written, your best resource would be him. Find out what he used for the sourcecode to design your website. Sometimes using a different sourcecode can affect the links and pages. Be sure to backup your webpages first.

I prefer usig a wysiwyg like FrontPage. This program will perform all the steps you need to create your pages and directions are easy to find. A lot of people prefer Dreamweaver, but this is not always easily obtained.

If you borrow a code, it is customary to reference from whom or where the code came from.

The gathering of information is the place to start, so you are off to a good start. If you have more questions, I will do my best to answer them.

Dreamweaver is generally ok, but Frontpage and Word (especially Word) do not produce valid HTML code. Most browsers can usually make sense of it, but no guarantees it'll look the same in all of them.

i've used stuff like php-nuke and drupal before. I've also written my own from scratch with PHP and MySQL, but right now I'm using Blogger, but hosting it myself. I could write something similar/better, but Blogger is just so easy and I don't really have the spare time to write webblogging software. Well, server software... My senior design project is webblogging/podcasting software for the pocketpc. The perfect thing to take on long bike tours.....

You could try a few semesters of HTML courses at your local community college...
