New bike blogs for 2011?

We’re losing One Less Car New and EcoVelo after the end of 2011, and Rick Smith also stopped publishing Yehuda Moon last September.

I’d like to feature new bike blogs that began over the last year. I have a couple in mind, but who would you like to recommend? Please feel free to leave a link to your own blog or your favorite new blog.

    Great idea…and it’s so nice to see you promoting these new cycling blogs.  I agree with Lloyd that http://www.theurbancountry.com is one of my new favorites.

    If you have a new or old cycling blog and haven’t submitted it to our World Cycling Blog Directory…be sure to do that as well at http://cranklisted.com.

    I’m making my goal in 2011 to spend more time riding my bike than I do in my car commuting to and from work. My commute by car is like 60 miles round-trip, so it’ll be a challenge. Does anybody care about that? Probably just me…

    I was sad to hear about EcoVelo stopping. I’d like to recommend a fellow London Blogger. Help My Chain Came Off is the name of her blog and is available here: http://helpmychaincameoff.blogspot.com/

    If Meli comes back, will ‘Bikes and the City’ count as a new blog?

    Great blog suggestions so far! We love bikeyface and The Urban Country as suggested. We’ll also throw our hat in the ring – http://dandyhorsemagazine.com/blog

    It’s not exactly a blog, but I built http://bikene.ws as kind of an experiment. It’s (supposed to be) a community driven cycling news aggregator. Fun to play around with nonetheless :)

    Is started my own little bikey blog after attending my first Women Who Bike brunch sponsored by Dottie of LGRAB.

    Thanks to those of you who recommended The Urban Country. Richard, I swear I didn’t pay them to do it ;)

    I follow http://lovingthebike.com/  and http://dailycycle.co.uk/ . And I write for http://bicla.ro (for those who speak Romanian).

    Coincidentally, I’ve just started one at http://spacecranks.blogspot.com Doubtful that it will ever measure up to the three you’ve mentioned above, but that’s a pretty tall order.

    Hi!  I just started following your blog so I missed this article when it was first published, but I’ll go ahead and mention my blog, http://www.bikinginmemphis.com, as a new blog of 2011.  (Technically I posted first in late December of 2010, but whatever.)  I’d love a shout-out if you don’t mind!

  • December 19, 2011 - 11:30 am | Permalink

    Sure thing — I’ll update the list. I’d added you to my RSS but forgot you’re a newcomer.

  • December 19, 2011 - 3:09 pm | Permalink

    Awesome.  Thanks!

  • December 19, 2011 - 3:11 pm | Permalink

    Oh hey – not to be picky, but the name of my blog is actually Biking in Memphis.  The reason I mention that is that there is/was another site called Bike Memphis, although it is largely dormant.

    Oops, sorry. Corrected now.

    If you plan to cycle anywhere in Minnesota, check out the MN Bike Trail Navigator blog.  http://mnbiketrailnavigator.blogspot.com/

    It contains links to maps and trail info for over 100 trails around the state, both paved, crushed gravel and mountain bike. Also, lots of photos, info on trail projects and posts of interest to cyclists.
