I’ve always known San Francisco to have a large affinity for bikers. It comes as no surprise, then, that a San Francisco based company called Strava is working on a universal program to keep track of a biker’s exercise for those who opt for the more sophisticated technology.

Fumbling with my pen and little notebook in the dark, struggling to see my odometer reading, I realized there must be a better way to track business miles.

So I went golfing a few days back and decided to give GolfTraxx another go.  If you remember my first report on it.. beware of rant.. I was not impressed.  So this time I tried it at another course in Sacramento and it seemed to work on some holes, not on others.  The only thing… Read More
