Top 50 cycling blogs

This list shows a collection of the best cycle blogs in the world. I hope it helps you discover something new. It took me absolutely ages to put together, so if you enjoyed it I would hugely appreciate any tweets/stumbles/diggs. Some notes on the list:

  • It was calculated by looking at over 100 cycling blogs
  • The rank is based on a number of elements such as Google Pagerank, Twitter Rank, Alexa Rank, number of comments and Technorati Authority
  • Certain blogs have been excluded where the primary focus of the site was not really on the blog as I felt this would be unfair
  • I have not included London Cyclist on the list for two reasons. 1. It is clearly an awesome blog 2. I did not want to be seen as biased
  • Where blogs have a twitter account I have linked to this in the rank number on the left
  • You may look through the list and think: “Why didn’t you include X blog” – I realise I may well have missed a great blog so apologies if I have but these are all the ones I could find in a reasonable time frame. Feel free to email me any suggestions for future lists
  • UPDATE: I have added a few more twitter links that were originally missed. Apologies!
  • UPDATE: Number 50 has been changed to Bike Noob because the Bike Geek appears to have been deleted
  • UPDATE: Epicurean cyclist now has a link to their new blog
  • UPDATE: I now have a list of blogs to be included in the next update. Keep sending me more!

    4. how to win my ex girlfriend back 02/08/2010 at 9:45 pm #

      Through this story I’ve been referring to some step-by-step gameplan everyone can adhere to to win again their ex girlfriend. Here’s exactly where you possibly can find it: watch this quick video below that explains the whole process. I bet this will turn out for being the smartest issue you do all day.

    5. tips on getting ex girlfriend back 02/08/2010 at 9:53 pm #

      But what if you are not one particular of those women that likes to play the victim? You want your ex girlfriend back and you’re prepared to do a little work to generate it transpire. Which is a beneficial and wise option.

    6. tips on getting ex girlfriend back 02/08/2010 at 9:56 pm #

      When you go in unprepared, or do what most individuals do, not only will a get-together along with your ex girlfriend not result in you two obtaining back again jointly, it is going to probably wind up making things even worse.

      Well, here’s one to add to the list which includes my long distance bike trips (so far made in USA and Canada, and the last year trip between Germany and Russia/Kazakhstan border)

      Includes the stats of the day, photo (by click on any has the link to all the other photos where can be downloaded in original size), story and soundtrack, and on the American side includes the photos GPS tagged while on pedal, route saved on the GPS and updated to Google maps.

      When I get more funds (all the trips ended due to lack of my personal funds) It will be continued somewhere in the world.

      I would like to recommend the following bike blog: MyWheelsAreTurning.com.

    18. Stephen Doroghazi 16/02/2011 at 1:16 am #

      I was actually very happy to find this tremendous resource, though somewhat surprised you do not reflect http://www.recumbentblog.com in the list of top 50. What makes this blog particularly valuable as a resource is that it is updated daily with a variety of entries geared to recubment bikes and trikes; but, there is also a wealth of information about velomobiles, more recently thought of as a practical HPV commuting vehicle, especially in areas that experience long periods of frigid weather.

      Hello Andreas,

      It’s a good list, I’m glad somebody went to the effort. I don’t think my blog would deserve to go in the top 50 but if you fancy popping by and having a read some time…

      Hi – ahhh, you haven’t seen my little blog about a bunch of women in a cycling club, all about our rides and adventures in the past 5 years! Please pay us a visit – and if you can tell me how to tweet it, and the other things in your second bullet point, maybe we will feature in the update?!
      chesterfabulousladies.blogspot, @fabulous_ladies, and facebook. I am doing my best!

      Hey,

      Consider adding http://www.velostage.com/ to that list. Pretty cool stuff on it.

    32. Paul 06/09/2012 at 11:34 pm #

      Many Thanks for your post, it is difficult to find a one stop shop for Cycle Blogs, so your list is the perfect start point, although its a shame it isn’t the ‘Top 51 Cycling Blogs’ because I think my blog would have made the list!

      Keep up the good work!

    33. Mike 10/10/2012 at 10:10 pm #

      Here is a blog of interest urbanfreedomoutlander.blogspot.ca it is a project me and two others are working on. Also check out our funding campaign http://igg.me/p/232699?a=1300437

      Have a list on my blog of 10 blogs more specifically mountain bike related, if any one is interested, most aren’t listed here, but are certainly worth checking out if you have the time.

      Some excellent blogs there! Wish I had time to set one up :(

    38. Colin Gray 26/11/2013 at 2:55 pm #

      Great list, thanks for posting! That’s my reading sorted for this week :)

      I do enjoy a bit of road biking, but, like Matt above, I’m more keen on mountain biking. Just keeps me more entertained! If you’re looking to add a few more of them check out http://www.mountainbikesapart.com and Trail Scotland – they should get any new mountain bikers started!

      Many thanks
      Colin

      Would heartily recommend http://oscarwilliamson.blogspot.co.uk/ great blog from an emerging cyclist and his hurdles that he has to overcome as it happens.

      I know I’m biased, but I think our bike tour blog has got good content for those people searching for bike tours in Europe or just general info about cycling in Europe. http://www.insitutravel.com/blog/

    41. Katja 19/03/2014 at 1:51 pm #

      I would humbly recommend my bike blog. It is written in Swedish but is very international in its content! http://cykelkatten.se :)

      No longer do I ought to stand in line in the coffee shop then ought to walk along the
      street clutching a paper cup full of scalding liquid. It’s not a good idea to own electrical appliances operating as
      long as you’re still asleep. When excellent
      beans are employed, a superb cup of joe can be achieved.

      I’ve started a new site called http://tightcyclist.co.uk please have a look!
