Counting the miles(9 posts)

Counting the milesMichaelM

Since buying a cycle computer the other day I've started to take an interest (become obsessed???) with monitoring the miles.

Is there spreadsheet available to download that shows something along the lines of:
Daily Mileage
Weekly Mileage
Total mileage
Average Daily Millage

Etc Etc

I know it can be done longhand but maybe someone's allready sorted this??

Many thanks.

how hard is it to build a spreadsheet grid with totals in both directions, plus the average function? It would take far less time to do it "longhand" than it would to find and download it from the web (or post the question here). This is about the simplest imaginable use of a spreadsheet.

You probably are gonna have problems just using Excel.

Last yearI started to use Excel as a spreadsheet but it was too time consuming. It was easier and faster just to log down my ride distance and time in a little note book after each ride. At the end of the week it was easy just to sit down with a calculator and average everything out.

Doing the computer generated version meant that I would have to sit down at my computer at the end of ride, and being tired and sweaty, sometimes I forgot. I'm sure there are some cyclocomputers out there that will do this for you.

This year I reset my cyclocomputer on Jan 1st and I'll see how many mile I end up with on Dec 31st. I find I do better if I just go out and ride for a set time or distance. I guess it depends on what your goals are..
Thanks for the links. (No Text)MichaelM
