You can log your miles manually at, but we actually recommend that you log your miles with Strava, which is a better way not only to record your own miles, but to share them with your friends and automatically log them to the National Bike Challenge as well. You can log your miles on Strava via smartphone (Android or iOS) or GPS cyclocomputers or fitness devices.
