Strava: awesome app for your iPad and iPhone.
For most sane people, how ever, Strava is simply a great incentive to get back on the bike every day_ Rides am tracked and stored, complete with detailed breakdowns.
The real fun conies in the challenging element - whether in beating your own persona] bests or those of others in your area. You don't even have to match someone's entire ride to join in; just complete one of the thousands of short segments programmed in Strava's database. Some of the more popular routes attract riders from far and wide for a crack at topping the leaderboard - riot all in the countryside, which is what gives Sirava its slightly controversial reputation.
Strava is also available in a running version.
