MY RECOMMENDATION: YES

BLOG DESCRIPTION: A cycling blog for everyday heroes. With personal accounts of the trials and tribulations of cycling in the real world - Daily Cycle offers you a one-stop-shop for your daily cycling fix. If you can't actually get out on the bike - you may as well read about it.
Daily Cycle is updated by a team of seven strong writers ranging from a professional triathlon coach to beginner cyclists. We have both male and female cyclists on board who are all keen cyclists and writers. All the content is unique, personal and hopefully inspiring.
There are no dull "how to change a puncture" articles, nor are there any regurgitated product reviews. We do offer gear reviews by they are from real cyclists who genuinely own the product and have been using it for a substantial amount of time.
- The Pro's and Con's of being a cycling WAG - a personal account of what it is like to be going out with a pro cyclist.
- Fall in love with cycling again by going back to basics - chuck your cycling computer away and enjoy cycling for what it is - pure bliss.
- Hilly - a personal account of a first attempt at a Hill Time Trial
- The physiology of stretching - your guide to why exactly we need to stretch.
MY REVIEW: This is a pretty interesting blog if you're a bicyclist - and if you're not you should be. Ride a bike for exercise and to save on gas (or petrol). It's fun and it's economical.
Although this blogger is based in the UK, any biker anywhere can benefit from these posts - in one aspect to learn what's going on in the British bike scene, but also just as a biker.
