Good and Great Blogs?
« on: June 10, 2017, 07:04:42 PM »
I was thinking that it would be nice to have a list of cycling and adventure related blogs that some of us have found and found to be great regular reading.  I enjoy good blogs. Their inspiration value is priceless and I like to see how other cyclists approach touring, both choice of locations as well as gear.

Pretty much my favorite blog, one that I've been following about six years now is Northernwalker.  He writes well and has owned Thorns in the past, and pretty much leads the life I hope to ... soon. Friendly Chap too, on your side of the "pond".
https://northernwalker.wordpress.com

another that I recommend as worth a look, is one kept by Tristan Ridley, who is on a world tour just now.   https://www.tristanridley.com

Do any of you have blogs that you find worthy of sharing?  Including you own, perhaps?

I follow several, although not on a daily basis. Here are a couple to begin with:

Emily Chappell writes quite beautifully. I've been reading her blog for several years now.

Very different but no less worthwhile reading is Martin Porters blog, The Cycling Lawyer.

I love Emily Chappell's writing!
Also went to a presentation talk she did at a Leeds Bicycle coop. Inspirational.

Here's another good one:

Enjoy!

Timothy Towers for me. On Crazy Guy.
Each day is meticulously broken down into sections covering everything from hills, food stops altitude times riding and accommodation.
Plus a map.
But it's not just the stats. His encounters with locals and country/population impressions are recorded.

I'll be following part of his Ethiopian route in February.

A blog and a post I find worth the time and the pondering.
