50 States - 100 Bike Blogs

Bike blogs have been around almost as long as blogging itself, but the recent growth in bicycle usage here in the United States made me curious about just how widespread the phenomena was. A couple weeks back I started a little project of finding two blogs for every state in the Union. For most states that was relatively easy, especially because there is a definite blog clustering effect within various biking communities. Once one cyclist starts a blog it’s common for at least a few more of their cycling friends and acquaintances to start bike blogs of their own. There were a few states that were tough, but I’ll leave figuring those out as an exercise to the reader.

I didn't have a completely set criteria for the bike blogs I chose beyond only two per state, but I did favor those that update regularly when I could. I tried to mix in some famous (dare I say canonical) bike blogs that I read regularly, with a bunch of others that I hadn't come across before.  I also wanted to get a good mix of mountain bikers, bike commuters, hipsters, advocates, roadies and randos- and I think I did fairly well in that regard.  The cycling diversity that I found throughout the country was downright American and reinforced what a powerful and unlimited tool for fun, utility and community the bicycle is.  Without further delay:
