It looks like response to the Best Bike Web Sites question has fallen off, after dropping “below the fold” because of a too-long tag response, so let’s compile what we have into one easy-to-click collection of links. Thanks to those who contributed their ideas.
These three sites provide everything you ever wanted to know (and more) about the bike racing scene. Cycling News’ collection of links is overwhelming. Velo News may have the cleanest design of the three sites. Pez is arguably the funkiest.
Training For Cyclists http://www.training4cyclists.com
I’ll highlight this contribution by Mike Weiland, but if you’re into training, you might also check his list of training sites.
Road Bike Rider http://www.roadbikerider.com
A simply designed site for roadies, with links to info on training, skills, nutrition, fitness, equipment, inspiration and fun! They offer a lot of e-books for sale. I subscribe to their weekly e-mail newsletter.
Associated with the British magazine Cycling Plus, which in my humble opinion is a far better mag than Bicycling, but its newsstand price in the States is $10.
Sheldon Brown http://www.sheldonbrown.com
The reference for all things cycling. Esoteric and arcane info you can’t easily find elsewhere. Although Sheldon is now doing his cycling in the Great Beyond, we can all hope his site will be around for a long time to come.
Adventure Cycling http://www.adventurecycling.org
For long-distance riders and bike tourers.
Bike Biz http://www.bikebiz.com/
If you’re interested in the bicycle industry.
OK, not an exhaustive list, or even a very long list. But these sites, along with all the blogs most of us read, will really cut into the productive hours of our days! Thanks again for participating.
