Bicycle-related Sites


Mountain Bike Reviews is a site with reviews of bikes, gear, local shops, and trails, as welll as other information. Well kept up and current.

Road Bike Reviews, the sister site, is not quite as complete, but if you're looking for info on gear, start there.

Sheldon Brown was known as the guru of cycling. Although he died in 2008, his site is kept current by a loyal band of friends, family members, and associates. Great technical information there; if you want to learn about almost any aspect of the bicycle itself, this is a good place to start.

Jim Langley's site is comprehensive about bicycles: technical aspects, cycling culture, bicycle history, information on fixing bikes (he has a whole page on fixing annoying bike noises). Hover the mouse over the graphics on the front page for navigation.

Red Kite Prayer collects bicycle writing about gear, racing, physical condition, and the mind, heart, and soul of cycling, and has active followers who comment on the writing.

BikeBiz has information about the retail cycling business; new gear and trends often show up here before most cyclists get a chance to hear about them.

Many Freewheelers wear Road ID products which have your contact and medical ID on them; when you can't speak for yourself, they will.

Video Channels

Check out the Youtube channel for the Global Cycling Network for videos about racing, tech, gear, and (primarily road) bike info. Entertaining and informative.

Oz Cycle, on Youtube, has tech tips, suggestions for saving money, thoughts from the road. Many videos about making your own tools and lubes. He's an Australian, and has both the accent and the attitude.

The SickBiker Youtube Channel has reviews and tech information; he doesn't seem to be sponsored by any manufacturer, and his opinions appear well-founded.

Path Less Pedaled Youtube channel has bike info for those who are NOT interested in the latest, lightest, or fastest; he's interested in trail riding, comfort, and use of the bike for other than speed and racing.

Spindatt's motto is "Ride Reasonably-Priced Bikes". Watch as he wrenches on his stable of well-running but largely cobbled-together bikes, rides around (I think) Nova Scotia, and opines on the state of cycling.
