2014 Mileage Chart 2014 Mileage Spreadsheet
The 2014 WSC Mileage Log comes in two versions:
The PDF Chart you write in and add up your mileage.
The Excel spreadsheet version allows you to log your miles and it calculates weekly and cumulative miles for you. New this year, the summary area automatically identifies your biggest mile day and biggest mile week.
Both documents will allow you to make a year to year comparison. The spreadsheet has protected/locked cells to ensure no accidental erasure of a formula, but you can modify it by unprotecting the sheet with the password “ride”.
