Steve's training log for 2017
New for 2017: Steve has added a column for elevation gain.
In the January tab type the name of your bike or its model name and your beginning mileage for the year over the author's bike's model and beginning mileage. If you have fewer than 6 bikes, just blank out the January field with the unwanted name in it. The spreadsheet will automatically fill out the rest of the year with this starting mileage for each of your listed bikes. If you buy a buy a new bike mid year, enter it's name or model in Jan, and the 0 mileage will automatically copy to every other month. At each month end you should update that month's ending odometer reading in the unprotected "ending mileage" field for each bike.
