Some of My Favorite Bike Blogs

Loadout Crop

I like bikes. Here are some of my favorite bike-related blogs:


Reviews of swank transportation-oriented bikes and accessories, as well as discussion of issues related to practical cycling. Lots of sidebar links to interesting bike blogs and vendors. My favorite part of EvoVelo, though, has got to be the beautiful photography.

As described by Alan and Michael, the authors:

This site is the public expression of our personal commitment to reduce our impact on the environment by employing bicycles as our primary mode of transport. By sharing what we learn from this endeavor, while also providing an aesthetically pleasing experience that celebrates the beauty of the bicycle and the joys of everyday bike riding, we hope to inspire others to make a similar commitment.

Lovely Bicycle

I operate my hooptie utility bike with little regard for aesthetic considerations, so it’s an eye-opener to see just how classy the bicycle scene can be.

Related: Copenhagen Cycle Chic and Vélocouture both feature photos of stylish bikes and riders, but without the personal narrative that makes sites like Lovely Bicycle interesting to revisit.

Urban Simplicity

Joe George rides a Yuba Mundo cargo bike around Buffalo, NY. I enjoy his things that can be carried on a bike series, no doubt because I like to carry things on my bike, too. His cooking posts are simply delicious.

The Path Less Pedaled

Russ and Laura sold everything and set out on their bikes to seek their fortune and meet America:

Paring down their lives to just what will fit on two bicycles, Laura and Russ embarked on an extended bike tour throughout the US and beyond – with the goal of connecting with and collecting the stories of people who followed a calling to live their lives in unique ways, while revitalizing the model of the traveling artisan and inspiring others to travel by bicycle.

Pretty inspiring.

Bike Snob NYC

BSNYC Seal of Disapproval

The inimitable Bike Snob lovingly lampoons every sector of bike culture, from the professional racer to the fixed-gear hipster to the car-free cargo biker:

While I love cycling and embrace it in all its forms, I’m also extremely critical. So I present to you my venting for your amusement and betterment. No offense meant to the critiqued. Always keep riding!

There are lots of running jokes in Bike Snob’s blog, so it may take a few visits to the archives before you’re fully able to parse the barrage of puns and references. Be sure to tune in for the weekly Friday Fun Quiz!
