I want to start journaling my riding experiences. I'm not one for hand-writing, so I'll do it on the computer or on the internet. Can anyone recommend something? Either a template for a common application like Word or Excel, or an internet site where I can record the daily info? Thanks.

Oh -- and I'm on a Mac OS 10.3.8. None of that funny Windows stuff please. :-)

It has a customizable spreadsheet type of interface that you can enter miles, speed, etc into. This is my 2nd season using it.

I second the nomination for bikejournal.com. If you register, make sure to join the bikeforums.com team, your mileage will count in the club stats.

Hey, I didn't know about that. I think I'll do that now and toss some of my measly miles to the club stats. Thanks for the tip

you could set it up your own way, type in your experience and make it into your own cycling web-log. It is very general and you could do practically anything to it.

In a similar vein to chris_pnoy's suggestion, there's a program called BikeBlog. I haven't really tried it out yet, and if you want number-crunching you want something else, but BikeBlog looks like a handy little journal- and log-keeper.
