Something New – Bike Blogs From Around the U.S.

shared lane yield to bikes

While I mostly enjoy winter and the seasons and the crazy weather that is Chicago, right now I’m tired of gray snow, gray skies and blogging about my umpteenth ride in the snow.  So instead,  I give you some bike blogs from around the country. These are blogs that you might not have heard of but will find familiar tales within of figuring out what to wear in the winter and new tales about what it’s like to ride a bike in a different city.  ( I will admit that my inspiration for this post came from a recent post on Carbusters.org that runs down the top 50 Bike Commuting blogs. )

Bike Bliss –  Cherilyn rocks it as a  mom, a cyclist, all in Bozeman Montana.

Biking Duluth –  And you thought we had it cold? Jeff writes about his exploits riding up north in the frozen wasteland.
