Two awesome biking blogs

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

I found two awesome biking blogs. These two make me feel like such a slacker.

First is Velocipete, a guy from Minnesota who has a lot of great road biking stories, but also rides his bike to work much of the time — something I want to try at some point. And even though it’s pretty cold in MN by now, he’s still commuting by bicycle often.

I found Velocipete when looking for information about the Jamis Satellite, a steel road bike. Velocipete has one.

From Velocipete’s blogroll, I also found the Up in Alaska blog. This is a woman named Jill who lives in Alaska and writes about mountain biking in all kinds of insane conditions. She’s also got some great photos, and seems to dabble some in skiing. Pretty fascinating stuff — and I have to say, riding in deep snow, in the dark (a necessity due to the 5ish hours of daylight per day right now), in cold conditions — that’s pretty inspiring.

I should get out and ride, even though it’s chilly here.

    You should get out and ride! Especially with those new tires that you’ve almost boughten. After all, the coldness mixed with your hotness should make everything a pleasant room temperature. 🙂
