    Found a good cycling log:

    http://www.mycyclinglog.com

    This will give me some motivation for the trainer.

    There's a group section too. We could start a Ridemonkey group and track our progress.

    Yeah, it looks pretty cool. And the group function looks like it could be fun.

    Anyone who wants to do it, register a name and a password and then PM me your name and I'll invite you to the Ridemonkey group.

    Maybe we can get a sticky

    When you PM me, give me your first name, last initial, not username. Then I can find you on the list :)

    Hey, I'm the monkey behind MyCyclingLog and am excited to see lots of people talking about it on Ridemonkey. My site was originally catered towards road cyclists and mountain bikers with speedometers, but I know that many people don't keep track of ride time or distance.

    I'm in the process of making MyCyclingLog more interesting for those of you who want to keep track of your rides, but aren't necessarily interesting in keeping track of time or distance. If anyone has suggestions in how this could be done, I would appreciate any feedback. You can either post here or in the Discussion area on MyCyclingLog.

    Thanks!
    mike.

    I'd like to see a spot for max HR, and the ability to add other activities like tread mill or weights or elliptical

    If you're signing up, hit Bluebug with a PM so she can add you to the RM group (if you like, of course).

    Good to see you on here! It was nice to find a log that wasn't overly detailed and so confusing to use.

    I agree that strength training options and more heart rate options or resistance options. Also, it would be nice to add trainer/rollers to the dropdown options box.

    Keep up the good work and we'll keep plugging the site (hint hint, fellow monkeys, PM me to join the group!)

    I've looked at the trainer this year....


    I guess I have spent about 15 minutes total looking at it.
    Can I log that?

    You should get a confirmation e-mail from the site. Did you get that? Maybe check your spam filter. My junk mail actually picked it up.
