Don't know if it considered a channel, but Global Cycling Network (GCN) has hundreds of videos an all types of bicycling topics.

KevCentral and Seth's Bike Hacks are the ones I most frequently watch.

Next week my answer may be completely different.

I love GCN. Watch it a lot.

I've also recently (like, yesterday) subscribed to Shane Miller, who appears to post videos mainly about Zwift, which is fine as most of my riding is on Zwift.

GCN and its host of channels for the win. They do a great job without over doing the advertising to death. I like that channel a lot.

Shane Miller is awesome too.
DCRainmaker is a great unbias source IMO
Bikeman4u is really great too
Park Tool has great resources online for us mere mortals that want to do our fixing
Danny H put out some fun vids of crazy stunts and stuff

One I just started following that I am kind of into is called Two Wheel Cruise, its a guy who lives in Japan that works for a cycling company. He is an American (I think) and his wife who is Japanese and all their adventures and such of living and biking in Japan. I think is great and love to see all the culture stuff they have compare to us. I think they are just fun to watch. His wife wasn't a huge cyclist and watching her become a cycling addict has been a fun journey to follow.

I like GCN. The cast of characters is great, production quality impressive, and the videos are typically pretty light-hearted and humorous. Park tools, as another mentioned, is a good one too.

I have watched this couple too. She is actually Viet and born in Vietnam. They met in Japan learning the language.
So they speak Japanese to each other LOL. They have been there 6 and 8 years or so, But there last vid is about leaving to live in her country. Covid must have ended his job. So he is selling their 11 bikes.

I watch Zack Gallardo a fair bit. I donít ride fixed gear, but Iíve found some useful information on his channel, and I like his aesthetic.

Spindatt is entertaining. I like his tinker Tuesday videos; because if I had access to as many bikes and parts as he does, Iíd probably spend about the same time making little changes to all of them.

skidder posted a social distancing video from Colin Furze yesterday that was pretty humorous and had good tunes. I'm pretty sure I've seen this English guy's videos before on BF.

Check it out

👍

I hope Kevin is ok. He has been mostly quiet since covid 19 started. Not sure what he does for his day job but I think it might be military related (he may be very busy) I enjoy him because he is a normal guy who loves the bicycle.

Lots of different channels that I dip in and out of, a few of them already listed that I subscribe to.

I've really gotten into watching this English guy who calls his channel Hambini who's an engineer and tears apart bike firms for their poor craftsmanship while also making his own bottom brackets and finding solutions to problems. If you can stand his language on some of his videos he's really great to watch as he certainly seems to know his stuff and he's able to simplify complex topics.

In no specific order:
Path Less Pedaled (sometimes)
the dreaded Hambini (entertaining in the same way as AvE)
Rides of Japan
Seth's Bike Hacks
CyclingAbout
Lanterne Rouge
NorCal Cycling (another sometimes)
GCN Race News (can't stand the actual channel. Too much sponsored garbage since Matt left years ago)

GCN, GMBN, Plus their tech channels, Seth's Bike Hacks, Park Tool, Path Less Pedaled, LockPickingLawyer, Forgotten Weapons, Berm Peak Express, Gabriel Iglesias, Hydrualic Press Chanel, Tested, Colin Furze, and probably a few others out there. Some are not as bicycle related but either funny or informative. I also would recommend Bill McClintock for really interesting music mashups.

Wow, a lot of Path Less Pedaled and Henrywildeberry fans, cool. I love them both, and think they're criminally under-appreciated. RaD Bike Adventures is another that really deserves more subscribers. I love their attidude, so open and friendly. Here's a random episode.
