To close out Bike Week I’d like to round up the 10 best bikes-as-transportation blogs out there. I say bikes-as-transportation because largely bikes are seen as tools for recreation and fitness (and sometimes as nothing more than children’s playthings) not as serious tools for mobility – for that the glory goes to cars, planes and in a distant third public transit. I think one of the goals of bike week is to change this perception and show that bikes are a fun, healthy and eco-friendly way to get around.
But here’s the thing, although I do bike for transportation, I confess I don’t really follow the bike blogs religiously. This is why I’m asking Source readers who are likely far more bike culture aware than I am to help us build this list of must read blogs.
To help kick things off, here’s a few I’ve found that seem great:
I’d like to know what cyclists think of these blogs, and if there’s any other great ones out there. Remember: the key is bikes-as-transport. To share your suggestions email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on Facebook.
