Found tonight Cyclogz – Ride and Share which is a pretty cool ride logging site. It allows you to log your ride directly from a GPSr such as the Garmin Edge 305.Â In turn, Cyclogz which is currently in Alpha mode, displays an animated map of your ride along with an elevation profile, speed chart, gradient profile and a heart rate chart.Â A sample of the page provided by Cyclogz can be found below or click here to be taken to the actual page in Cyclogz.

Subbu Allamaraju, the developer of Cyclogz describe the website thus:
Garminâ„¢ provides a Garmin Tranining Centerâ„¢ for uploading and managing logs on personal computers. There is MotionBased that lets you upload, and manage unlimited (for a fee) logs. Then there are sites like My Cycling Log and Wikiloc which provide ways to manage logs, but require user input – either by typing in numbers and notes, or by uploading files!
I wanted something that is easier, more flexible, open, and above all a free place for cyclists to store and manage their logs, as well as share it with fellow cyclists, while saving the $ for energy food, coffee, spare tubes, and of course, more fancy bikes.
In creating Cyclogzâ„¢, my goal was to let the software do the work while you relax after each ride. No elaborate forms to submit, no complex conversions from various GPS formats! It should not take more than a couple of minutes to add a log to Cyclogzâ„¢. Try it out for yourself.
Cyclogz is still undergoing development. Although the core framework for uploading, managing, and sharing logs and ride diary is in place, there is more work to be done to make it faster, easier and fun to use. During the coming winter months, I am planning to build some major features, and if you have any feature suggestions, please do email, and I will be more than happy to incorporate them.
