BLOGS ARE DIFFERENT FROM NEWS WEBSITES. THEY ARE A PERSON'S THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, IDEAS, SOMETIMES PLANNED, AND SOMETIMES POSTED, AD-HOC. ITS PERSONALITY ON PAPER? BLOGS JUMP AWAY FROM THE MAINSTREAM.
For us at Condor, we love blogs because you get to read and look at some really interesting parts of the sport and lifestyle that is cycling.
This month we'll mostly be reading...
Bianchista - finds some really rare cycling pictures that you'll probably never see on mainstream cycling sites. There are lots of pimp bike products and plenty of Italian influence. A couple of reviews, too.
Kristof Ramon - pro photographer. In late 2009, we went to Gent to watch one of the final nights of the Six Day. The following day it was wet, windy and rank, so we went for a ride down by the canal (see the pic below). Kristof gave up his Sunday and popped up along our route and took some snaps. They are very epic snaps.
Since then the cycling snaps just keep on coming. He's snapped some of the very top pros in his very unique style. Follow him on Twitter - @kristoframon and bookmark his Flickr.
Geoff Waugh - funny man and photographer. He's been snapping a fair amount of time and you'll have no doubt seen his images crop up in cycling magazines, mainstream media and newspapers. We like his excellent blog, and it's not just related to cycling. Follow him on Twitter - @TheWarHead.
Elcylista - cycle design is one of the happier marriages of form and function. This New Yorker's blog looks effortlessly cool and mixes it up between bicycle culture and design.
LaGazzettaDellaBici - pros, Italian stuff, pros and pro cycling. Nice pics and good post-race write ups.
