What I’m Reading

These are the cycling blogs that I read regularly. You should too.

Chris Horner’s Blog – Oregon Live

Chris is a pro cyclist racing with Lance Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer on Team RadioShack. His articles, especially during the Tour de France gives you a real insider view of what it’s like to be a pro cyclist racing at the highest levels of the sport.

Cycling Challenge – http://www.cycling-challenge.com

Will loves a great challenge and living among the French and Swiss Alps makes his annual Challenge an epic adventure. This year, his goal is to cycle up 100 different Cols, ride a metric century every month and race La Marmotte.

Donald’s Daily Draft – http://djones.myncblogs.com

Cycling the beautiful roads of North Carolina, Donald is a dad, a son, a cyclist and an anchor for local NBC evening news.

Fat Cyclist – http://www.fatcyclist.com

Fatty will make you laugh, especially if you are serious about cycling. He started blogging as a way to hold himself accountable to his weight-loss program but has ended up one of the most popular cycling blogs around. I originally ran across his blog while researching the Leadville 100 – which he races on a single speed! His stories are funny, touching, poignant and he’s one hell of a cancer fighter. A must-read.

Jill Outside – http://arcticglass.blogspot.com/

Jill is an amazing adventurer, cyclist and writer which is a pretty great combination in a blog author. Here’s an excerpt from her About Me page:

Life is my adventure, and bicycles are my vehicles. I crave distance and elevation — longer, higher and harder. I’m not fast. But give me a deep winter chill, mud-soaked trail or drenching rain, and I’m still happy, because I’m out there in the world — the real world. I love outdoor landscapes. I take a lot of photos.

This blog used to be called “Up in Alaska.” I launched it in 2005, shortly after I moved to the Last Frontier, to keep my friends and family updated on my life. It has since taken the shape of an endurance bike racing blog, an outdoor adventure blog and a photo blog. In June 2010, I moved to Montana to pursue new opportunities. Now this blog is about my life “Outside.”
