Best bike blogs

Feb 13, 2017 | News

You love cycling, we get it – and what better way than to feed the habit than by digesting all the news, gossip and tittle-tattle of fellow cyclists around the world. Here is a bunch of some of the best bloggers, scribblers and avid updaters out there. If we’ve forgotten your favourite, let us know…

Bike Snob NYC
Cycling’s most prolific, well-known, hilarious and anonymous blogger”, Bike Snob NYC is now not so anonymous, thanks to two published books, but he still delivers “sharp-edged and fetishistically detailed” posts on life as a cyclist in the Big Apple.

Bikes & Stuff
Authored by multi-disciplined bike racer, journalist and award-winning blogger Juliet Elliott, Bikes & Stuff is where you’ll find Instagram-friendly pics rubbing shoulders with reviews of cool cycling gear, training tips, travelogues and more.

The smart woman’s cycling mag is filled with pannier-loads of sound advice, refuelling recipes, lustful apparel and inspirational individuals – all written by cyclists for cyclists. If you need a screen break (don’t we all), pick up a free printed copy.

Copenhagen Cycle Chic
Essentially a collection of well-dressed Copenhageners on their daily commute, CCC is “an inspiring glimpse at utopia” – a place where safe, segregated bike lanes encourage people of all ages and abilities to cycle around wearing their Sunday best. Pretty inspiring.

Cycling Europe
Written by the man who gave us Crossing Europe on a Bike Called Reggie, Along the Med on a Bike Called Reggie and the upcoming Spain to Norway on a Bike Called Reggie, Andrew Sykes’ blog shares (unsurprisingly) tips on long-distance cycling trips, must-cycle routes and pretty sights you’ll see along the way.

Cycling Uphill

Read former National Hill-Climbing cycling champ Tejvan Pettinger’s charming conversational pieces on everything from cycling in the winter, planning routes, massaging away aches and pains, and tips for aspiring bloggers. Great pictures too.

London Cyclist

LC’s aim is to “make your everyday cycle that bit more enjoyable” and it does this through the sharing of lovely routes, lust-have gear and thoughts on what it is to be a cyclist in the Capital and beyond. (The post on lorries’ blind spots is a must-read.)

Ordinary Cycling Girl

Trespass named OCC (pictured) the Best Cycling Blog in their 2016 Blog Awards. Find beautiful pictures of her cycling travels, well-written reviews of bike-related kit and articles on anything from why you should take up yoga to ways to tackle winter training.

Velo City Girl

Whether it’s on BBC’s Newsnight, ITV4’s The Cycle Show or in The Guardian or Time Out, Lady Vélo will take any opportunity to discuss and promote cycling. Read about the time she rode around the Velodrome, browse beautiful pictures of her astride her Pashley and share her stories of riding the Eroica Limburg.
