Favorite Cycling Websites

I don't have access to the internet while at work. What I usually do is download cycling pages to a floppy and take it to work. I read the page when I have time, and quite a library has grown from my downloads. I have read most of everything from Ken Kifers website:
http://www.kenkifer.com/bikepages/sitemap.htm

Please post one or a few of your favorite cycling related websites. My e-library at work needs to grow a bit more.

If you're looking for discussion type sites there's a few besides this one. Since I started riding roadies in the 1970's and keep a vintage Basso I like the Vintage Lightweight Discussions at Oldroads.com.

Not being only a retro rider I frequently find interesting threads at Roadbikereview.com, particularly under the General Discussions heading. A few people I "converse" with like the Collector's Forum at Schwinn.com (Pacific.com? ) I'm not overwhelmed. Alot of Stingray collectors. Nothing wrong with that but many of them seem to feel that collecting juvenile bikes require them to act juvenile.

Hopefully it's OK to list a few "competing" sites. I don't really feel they compete so much as complement. This is far and away the most extensive site I've found.

Well, aside from this one [the first site I vivit every day], there's...

Cycling News, The Daily Peloton, Eurosport's cycling news page and the UCI for race info. There's RoadBikeReview for product reviews and some chat, though the locals are not where near as friednly as the folks here, and Cypho Cycling Photography and Graham Watson's site for cycling photography.

There are a whole lot of others, but I'll let other people have a chace.

This is Chicagoland Bike Federation. I'm not from Chicago, but I like this site.

http://www.bikesbl.org/
Here is the Southern Bicycle League website. I think it is for the bicycle club from Stone Mountain, but I'm not sure. I'll have to ask Pete.

The Bikes Belong Coalition's Guide to Bicycle Advocacy is at:

http://www.gis.net/~olken/Guide/BBCGuide.pdf

Bikes Belong is a group that lobbies Congress for bicycling rights. Their main site is at http://bikesbelong.org/
One has to work in the bicycle industry to be a member of bikes belong, so bear in mind that the information on the site is slightly skewed in the direction of bicycle retailers.

Mainly, I access advocacy-related sites (Chicago Bicycle Federation site, the League of Illinois Bicyclists site (http://www.bikelib.org/), etc.) and sites related to events going on in my area (www.bikewinter.org).
