    Good Bicycling software

    Anyone know of a good Training program for cycling (or even just to keep a log of rides, etc). I've found BikePro, but there's no option to exclude all the heart datga, and I'm not to that point yet. I prefer cheap or free, but reasonably priced ($30 or less) is welcome too. Free trials would be nice too...

    Thanks,
    Carl J. Stoneham

    I haven't used it, but http://download.com.com/3000-2136-10...l?tag=lst-0-11 looks like what you are looking for.
    I did a search on Download.com and found it.

    You might want to try Bike Log from Siesta Software.Bike Log from Siesta Software.
    It's shareware; if you decide to buy it, it's $14.95.

    Lots of people on the forums use bikeprolog.com to keep track of their rides.

    I certainly appreciate the offer Spaze, but I'd prefer an offline program so I could use it on my laptop when I don't have a dial-up connection. Nevertheless, your offer was very generous

    But how long would it take to make a spreadsheet or (I've never used a database pgm) Dbase skelliton for one? Not long, except you might tweek it for a long time improving it. I'll bet it would be usuable after 2 hours.

    True, but I kind of tire of Excel. I like dedicated programs just because all the info is a bit better managed and I suck at Access

    I found that BikePro 3.0 works for me. Check it out at www.he.net/~bikepro

    I actually just started a log in Excel a few days ago. Using Excel is simpler and more flexible than custom software. I have attached mine if you want to use it as a starting point.

    I use this program on my PDA, and it now has a windows companion that can be used in conjunction with a PDA, or as a standalone PC program.

    For $10.00 ($14.84 Cdn),you can't go wrong!

    Hi,
    this may be too Stone Age for you; but I use the Heart rate Monitor Log Book by Edwards and Reed. It is easy to use, and a hard rive crash won't lose last year's training info.
    We are as gods, we might as well get good at it.

    Hey Late- I'm old school too. I use the Heart Rate Monitor Log Book and write in my info. I just like that I can drag it around and it weighs nothing, and the more I write the better I feel reading through all my old workouts and seeing how I've progressed.

    Hi

    I am a software developer. If anyone would like to contribute suggestions for an offline desktop piece of software, I'll write it for you - no charge. Let me know the information you would expect to feed in to the database, and the types of analysis you would want back.

    Hey! That's a good website. Wish they had a more comprehensive HR section, but that's easy and straightforward... Hmmmm

    Hey Carl, I created the site... just let me know what you want and I'll build it for you (within reason).

    Will do! I like it alot! Didn't know it was yours... The more time I spend on the site, the better I like it. I figured out a way to around only having avHR. I just base the difficulty on HR ranges...

    An option to add ride time (i.e. 8am, 5pm) might be nice for those of us who ride 2-3x a day as well as fields for average speed and cadence (user-calculated).

    Another thing, a "Home" link would be nice. On some of the pages, I can't get to the main page (for the ranking lists, etc) w/o retyping the domain.

    I'd just make the banner a map and clicking on the rider or "ActiveBody" takes you back to the main page.

    Hey Carl,

    Good idea, but for each person, there are different "main pages"

    For runners, you go to a specific running home page, cycling -> cycling home page, and you guessed it... walking -> walking home page...

    I've put links at the top to all 3 so just click the activity (your case, cycling) and that should get you back.

    Thanks,
    Clint

    I know this is a lot of posts, but...
    I see the average speed field for all of my rides combined, but this is kind of useless to me for ride comparison. I determine how "well" I did by comparing AvSpeed and Cadence between rides. This way, I can compare a 6mi ride to a 15mi ride. The ability to enter these in separate fields (not the "notes") would be nice. I don't need them to be formula driven since my cyclocomputer already gives me the information. They could just be text fields.
