If you're not out cycling...

What do you do?

You could jump on the rollers as I am doing in this picture.

Or you could go randonneuring vicariously, via electrons. I'm talking blogs!

We bloggers are not bashful, so if you want tips, ride reports, equipment reviews, or goofy flashes of insight that only come on after too many kilometers in the saddle, then check out the blogs.

One or two will become your virtual pals, and you’ll go into rando withdrawal without your daily fix!

So, here’s a list of some of my favorites. I choose ones that tend to have pretty regular postings. For me, that keeps me coming back. You can also find my favorites in my “Blogs to pique your curiosity” to the right of this posting*.

For the most part, these bloggers keep their posts on a roll or have added interest by their sense of place, poetry, keen observation, stunning photography, diversity of media, or other such creativity:

· Kent’s Bike Blog (not actually about randonneuring, but too good to ignore)
· Dr. Codfish Chronicles
· formerly floyd speaks
· Randonneurextra
· Research Trailer Park
· Alaska Randonneurs
· The Daily Randonneur
· Spokesong
· mile 43
· cycling in seattle
· Alex Wetmore is always busy with something…

Keep clicking curiously,
