“What are you going to do in retirement,” I used to be asked. “You can’t ride your bike all the time.”

If you are inclined to high mileage, though, consider Pluse3Network instead of BikeJournal.
With Plus 3 you select a sponsor and a charity and each mile you log contributes toward your charity. As long as you are logging your miles, why not do it for a good cause? And you can be competitive too. Lots of contests and lists of high scorers as well as the ability to share your activity on Facebook and to form social groups on the site.
