Bloggers Wanted.

I'm looking for bloggers to join a new project I've started called Local Cyclist. Take a look at the site www.localcyclist.com. The idea is that bloggers across the country can be organized to produce a national news site from the local perspective. If you are interested throw up a link to your blog and we'll get in touch.

I just need people who blog about cycling that are interested in joining.

the site has two goals. The first is create a resource where anyone can easily find cycling information specific to their location. The second is to organize existing blogs into a news-style site that provides national coverage from the local pespective.

Participation entails giving us permission to post your headline on the site and adding a tag to your posts which allows to acurately sort the post by topic. If someone finds a headline interesting and clicks on it they are taken back to the original site to read the full article.

Our only requirements are a reciprocal link back to our site and that the blog is relatively PG.

That's a great idea. I'm a relatively new blogger, my blog is only about a month old. It's nothing special, just about the adventures of a n00b who decided to embrace the "car-free" lifestyle and become much more than just an "occasional" cyclist.

http://righteousmetalbroad.blogspot.com/

I don't follow the cycling sports news, so it's not sporty. I don't attend any bicycling social events (like Midnight Ridazz or Critical Mass) as I have a crazy work schedule and can't usually make them. Although I will try to attend local meetings to support bicycle advocacy in my area. And you won't see me posting pictures of myself wearing bright yellow.

I want my blog to be geared towards other n00bs, those who are finding their own newfound love for bicycling. I also want to write for those who consider themselves relatively unconventional cyclists. People who dress in street clothing while riding (whether they be jeans, knickers or *gasp* dresses).

Like RMetalBroad, I'm a relatively new cyclist, hitting the road again recreationally in the past month. Although I travel quite a bit for work, I also have the opportunity to work from home a lot and do recreational cycling, so I started a new blog that includes, but is not exclusive to, cycling.

I don't know about you, but I think that "Fat Man on a Bike" is the best blog in the world*.

* Probably because I write it.

I write a blog about cycling in Europe (I put together guided and self-guided tours), but also plan to add info on local rides in Colorado and California. I also have a blog on indoor cycling which is quite popular but not sure if it fits what you're looking for.
