The past 24 hours have been completely consumed by putting together this list! I wanted to stick to it and finish it because everyone found it really useful last time for discovering new cycling blogs and all the bloggers that made it onto the list were very grateful for the traffic boost to their sites.
There have been some fantastic new entries onto the list. Bike 198 which I can’t believe I missed last time, Prolly is Not Probably again a stupid miss on my part and Cycling Tips which has grown into one of my favourite blogs.
I’ve labelled in green the blogs that have moved up the list and orange for any new entries.
Have I missed you out?
Unfortunately a couple of blogs that I absolutely love didn’t make it into the top 50 this time. This is mainly due to the number of new entries. If you get some time checkout Bike Noob, Treadly and An Adventure Called Bicycling. There are plenty more blogs that I love and I follow but I have to draw the line somewhere.
If your blog was not included then please let me know about it and I’ll add it to the list of blogs I’m considering for the next update.
How did I pick top 50?
I visit every single cycling blog I’ve ever heard of and I note down certain things such as the number of comments in the last 5 posts (excluding most recent post), Alexa rank and Google inlinks.
Then each of the attributes gets a score, it is normalised and an average is calculated. It basically involves a lot of Excel formulas and plenty of data checking!
I also have a few criteria’s such as: the blogs have to be active and not aimed solely at selling stuff.
Any more interesting stats?
- Highest Alexa rank: Bike 198
- Highest number of comments: Bike Snob NYC
