There are a lot of excellent and awesome bike blogs out there these days. Two years ago, they were few. Several of those blogs are still around and are better than ever. I came across a cool site last week called vélo-flâneur. I’ll let it speak for itself. From “About” page:

Cycling is a deeply aesthetic practice. Riding transverses the city and country; it bridges the mechanical and the organic. Here readers will find some thoughts on the intersection of cycling and modernity from the relatively dispassionate and fleeting, yet productive position of the pedestrian or cyclist. This is not about racing. Vélo Flâneur focuses on everyday, utilitarian riding, randonneuring, jaunts through urban and natural terrain — and watching, listening, and feeling.

This is really my kind of website. And there’s a Flickr group, too!
