|Monday's regularly scheduled programming is preempted this week to spend time with our children.|
I discovered it's difficult to find male writers that inspire. I covet the one at the end of this list. For the most part guy's blogs are too gnarly, too much lycra, full of fat bikes and beer, or speed demons, rough language—too testosterone laden for me. I identify more easily with a circle of women.
The Betty Way of Things
I learned there are locking skewers. Betty likes "yardsailing"— love that term—as much as I do. She rides a bike named Lucy. Betty has an Etsy shop, selling refashioned jewelry and colorful, striking original paintings.
Books biscuits, and bicycles
A Sydney, Australia rider who often has children in tow. Title says it all. Books, yes. Biscuits, yes-the Aussie kind, which are unique to someone from the U.S. (and if he talks about Vegemite also than I'm in heaven. I confess to eating this strange gooey paste almost daily)
Lael's Globe of Adventure
Heavy on photography, I like the simplicity of this site. Adventure is paramount. Lael moves around on her bike and is a runner too.
Big Orange Bike
I love orange and would someday like to own an orange bike (purple too). She has a Yuba Mundo. The author is pregnant with their third child so I'm not sure how often she'll post. After all, family comes first.
Bikes, the Universe and Everything
From Saskatchewan, Canada, I like the collection of older bikes: Raleighs, Peugeots, a Raleigh Twenty. Down to earth writing.
America the Beautiful: A Circumnavigation
Stunning photography and expressive words by a woman traveling around the Untied States by car, but with a bicycle in tow. A journey of the heart and soul.
Pedaling in Place
Finally, a blog by a guy. From New York City. Descriptive, poetic prose. Lots of world adventures. Nice photography.
