Share Your Favorite Cycling Blogs And Websites?
 
Help me overcome the wasteland that is my Bookmarks.

I'm looking for your favorite cycling related links to blogs and websites. I only have a handful bookmarked, and I think I'm wearing them out.

Heck, while we're at it, your favorite links for fitness, nutrition, and health would be nice too. Since we are the 50+ bunch after all.

Thanks!

Dave Moulton, a very good writer with an ex-racer, ex-frame builder perspective.
He balances retro-grouch with open mindedness quite nicely.

You guys have beat me to my favorites already

I used to be able to pick up VeloNews from news stands and even bike shops as a newspaper but their print version is way different now. Anyway I tend to follow competitive cycling on their somewhat more American centric site.

http://velonews.competitor.com/

I catch these guys podcasts now and then when they interview old guys like Jeff Pierce, Bauer, Hampsten or Alexi Grewal.

Nice collection of old road bikes:

Also like crazyguyonabike.com. Lots of good info on there and the journals are great!

Of course, bikeforums is great, really!

Otherwise is velonews and that is in english!

Here's one you can enjoy with your grandkids.

For those new to the form, manga are Japanese comics. Like the language, the panels read across the page from right to left. Anime are cartoons.

Yowamushi Pedal Manga (English translation) New volumes at irregular intervals
Yowamushi Pedal Anime (English subtitles) New episodes every Monday (Now you know what I do when I get home Monday nights.)

Synopsis:

Since he was a little boy, Onoda Sakamichi has ridden his mamachari–a utility bicycle with a step-through frame–to go to Akihabara every week (90 km round-trip) to check out or buy otaku things. Fellow freshman and cyclist Shunsuke Imaizumi, while training, notices a boy (Onoda) riding his mamachari up a steep road, 20% grade--while singing.

Freshman and road racing cyclist, Shokichi Naruko visits Akihabara to get some Gundam plastic models for his younger brothers and meets Onoda who catches his attention because of the his cycling skill on the mamachari. Later they find out they go to the same school. At school, both Naruko and Imaizumi try to convince Onoda to join the bicycle racing club, but will he?

Personally, I would so rock that Inter-High kit.

I keep logging on here for Dudlesack's posts: witty, fun, and just sarcastic enough to keep me interested. he needs a blog or website of his own..... And, maybe an addition to his Lemond

I almost forgot this one because I really don't get over there nearly often enough. If you are into cycling history I've got an excellent site that I keep coming up with in searches for articles on past cycling favorites:
