I love the mapmyride.com site for checking elevation and hills before I do a long ride on an unknown route

Another great website is mapmyride.com, the membership is free and it provides a great way to map out your routes and check your mileage and find new rides.

It is funny I can get two different readings for mileage from measuring in a car, bike computer, and microsoft maps.

I like this site a lot. Especially since it also tracks elevation:

The GPS units are great but I prefer something that is actually on my bike and measures it by circumference. I trust the accuracy of something that is right on my bike rather then that which is up in space. Although GPS is really accurate and works well the cyclometer is a personal preference. I hope you find one that works for you.

I went out and bought a speedometer for my bike. Very easy to attach too. From Walmart for about 10 bucks if I remember correctly, it's not the wireless one. It shows me my max speed, average speed, trip miles, total miles, trip time. Really easy to use.

I WILL make better choices.
I WILL do what it takes to get rid of this weight.
I WILL NOT STAY WHERE I AM!
I REFUSE TO STAY OVER 200 LBS!

Duh ! LOL never mind. I found the gizmo and gadget post. Plus I have a gps that can tell me all that great info :)

If you dont do it, know one else will ! There are 24 hours in a day, you only need 1 of those hours to feel better about yourself :)
