My good friend and fellow Alabama blogger, Mack, created a fantastic meme awhile back. His meme started quite a stir, got a lot of attention and introduced people to some great new blogs they'd never heard of. Mack's meme was built around the community of marketing blogs, but the idea is totally portable and applicable to any and all niches.
So, in honor of the original meme (which I really loved and posted about on my other blog), I am spinning this off for the bike nerd crowd. The original title was the Z-List, as an affront to the so-called A-List of blogs/ bloggers. It was all about community. Our community is all about bicycles, so I am calling this the B-List... for hopefully obvious reasons.
Here's how it works;
I post my list of bike blogs that I like and read and then you cut and paste the list onto your blog and add the sites that you like and read. Then anybody who reads the list does the same and a great viral meme is born, creating lots of exposure to the blogs on the lists and giving people a new set of blogs to read that they might not have known anything about. It's a great way to build and foster community among our peer group of cycling bloggers... and it's also a lot of fun and brings people together for a big virtual hug.
Without further delay; here are my regular bike blog reads (my B-List), in no particular order at all...
Bitch Kitty's Scratching Post
Crooked Cog Network (main page for a series of great reads)

So there you have it... 29 bike blogs. Maybe you know them, maybe you don't... but now you do. These are my daily reads. What are yours? Copy, paste and add your own favorites... watch the traffic roll in to you and all of the blogs listed. Let me know what you post because I really want to see the list grow and learn some new blogs to read myself.
