Bicycle Mileage Logs


Click on this link to download the SCU Universal Mileage Log. It is a Microsoft Excel-format (".XLSX") spreadsheet with 6 charts. The SCU Universal Mileage Log is good for any year. It provides automatic summation of mileage and number of rides, and it computes the average ride distance. In addition to the numeric data, the log displays six charts as shown in the photo (populated with simulated ride data in order to demonstrate the charting). Open your copy of the mileage log spreadsheet using Microsoft Excel, or any of the following free applications: Office Online, Google Sheets, Apple Numbers (free on iOS), Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, etc. To access your mileage log from multiple devices - including phones and tablets - store the file in the cloud; for example, in Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, iCloud, etc.

For additional information and download instructions, go to the Document Library, and follow the 3 steps shown here.
