Bicycles were first seen in the 19th century and now number in the billions. Cycling is a popular activity and sport in the United States and the rest of the world. In addition to an excellent way to strengthen the legs and get a cardiovascular workout, a bicycle uses no gas, does not contribute to air pollution, and is easier to park. When the gas prices were at their highest recently, many people pulled their forgotten bikes out of the basement to save gas money. The sport of cycling is also an enjoyable activity to participate in and to watch, whether you are a professional cyclist or an amateur. If you are a lover of blogs and a lover of cycling, you’ll love cycling blogs. Here are five that top the list.
Bike Snob NYC
This is one of the funniest and most intelligent blogs created by a New York cycler. The blogger says, “If you have any sense as a cyclist, you know that my disapproval of your bike means absolutely nothing.” The blogger is good about updating on a regular basis. You’ll find intelligent venting, but also some funny takes on the world of cycling. In addition, you can order Bike Snob NYC stickers.
