Bike Touring Blogs/Websites
« on: August 06, 2009, 05:19:11 pm »
Okay, here's a suggestion to the powers that be of this fine website. I'd like to see a section devoted to listing blogs/websites of folks that are doing long distance tours. One site that many folks use is http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/?o=aw . But a lot of folks choose to do their own thing, and it would be cool if links could be posted in one section. Here's one good example of a guy riding around the perimeter of the US:

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already. Over in our Ride Registry there is a link for online journals. Choosing this link will allow you to see all of the rides that people have entered that included a link to an outside journal. Hope this is what you are looking for.

jsieber, I'm interested, but the links don't work, even after fixing the double "http" and putting the missing colon right after the second "http".  What should they be?

Thanks for pointing it out, I didn't know this section existed. But it only answers half of what I was looking for. The way it is set up, only the folks doing the ride can add their "ride". I was hoping a section could be added to the forum for websites/blogs that members of this board have discovered could share with other readers.

We are looking into ways to highlight different blogs in the future either on our main site or our blog. In the meantime anyone could start a forum thread that lists cycling blogs and asks others to contribute. Thanks for passing along the ideas.
