Riders & Writers
- Biking Bis
News and comments about tours, touring, & racing. Good things not seen elsewhere.
- Commute By Bike
Many reviews, a DIY project or two, and some fun posts about biking.
A great, active blog.
The struggles of a fat guy on his way to middle age and the classic battle of the bulge. Against him, the entire agricultural and food production system, American Midwestern attitudes towards food and eating and a lifetime of sloth and drunkenness. His only weapon, his bike.
- Freewheeling Spirit
An exhilarating cycling blog. Formerly the authoritative site for Danish handball news and the bike porn contest (my entry was rejected), Freewheeling is a site I check out ever day.

Wonderful writing from a "bicycle obsessionist."
- Martino's Bike Lane Diary
Sharp-witted cycling advocacy and photos

It's a magazine, newsletter, blog, and the mind boggles to think what else.
- Urbana-Champaign Bicycle Commute
Charming, "fresh" writing about biking in University of Illinois Land.
- Yehuda Moon
Rick Smith's bikey comic.
- Bicycle Colorado
Wrapped up effort to get a "share the road" vanity automobile license plate. In February 2008, failed to raise the maximum fine for running over a cyclist while the driver was failing to yield. (Bicycle Colorado was pushing for $1,000. Radical.)
- Bike Denver
Positive trajectory in doubt, trending back to ass-kiss mode. Too bad.
- City of Denver's Bike Program
Denver shows why it's behind the curve. (I really didn't think this page could get worse . . . Wrong again.)

The most experienced mechanics in town and the most complete collection of tools and parts in the West. No place like it.

- Rocky Hillside on Google+
Yep. Sucked into the google whirlpool.
- The Bike Depot
A east side (Park Hill) non-profit bike place that encourages folks to build and fix their own bikes and gives them the tools and help to actually do it. Nice dedicated folks who seem to know what they are doing. (As befits a foundation-funded operation, the website description is opaque and baffling, but I've been there and it's a good place.)
- Track Shack
Friendly, competent, and cool.

A large collection of articles and links on cycling and sustainability.

Though it's about cooking and food, I love the writing - snappy and downright . . . rollicking. Read this.

The Paris Review is a literary magazine featuring original writing, art, and in-depth interviews with famous writers. And its website is a collection of literary curiosities, fiction, and essays.
- A Bikeable Feast
"I want to learn about sustainable agriculture, as much as I possibly can. . . . I plan to hop on my bike and head north, following the growing season in a giant loop around the country, stopping to learn and work . . . I imagine this will take about a year, maybe longer."
- A Honeymoon to Remember
"[They] built the bikes, sold the house, got married, quit a job," and are cycling around Asia. They finished their tour in May 2010.

David Byrne cycled around in the world in 1975. Now retired, he's doing it again. Why? "I can think of nothing better to do."
- The Touring Store
The best, most knowledgeable, compulsive person to talk to about panniers and racks is Wayne. Has any business, internet or brick and mortar, ever know so much and been so helpful about this stuff? His prices are great, too.
