Like most people who think of doing something new, I turned to the web when I first thought about to start cycling. Over the last few months I've found quite a few informative, entertaining and damn right useful websites related to cycling. Here are some of my favourites:
CycleStreets - best online cycle route planner, period. They also offer a free IPhone app and
OpenCycleMap - built upon the open source map site OpenStreetMap, this is the only online map which highlights cycle routes. CycleStreets uses this too to display routes.
TFL Cycle Journey Planner - a cycle planner from Transport for London. Not as good as cyclestreets but it does show where you can find Boris Bike cycle docks.
London Cyclist Blog - one of the most popular cycle blogs out there. Lots of useful information, product reviews and cycling tips.
The Trusty Steed - a very entertaining blog about a girl in London and her bike named Trusty.
i bike london - another blog about cyling in London. This blogger's aim is to rehabilitate the bicycle.
Cyclists in the City - blog on problems of cycling in the City of London and what can be done about it. If you there is a particular road or junction that you think is a problem, this is the site where to raise it.Guardian Bike Blog - cycling blog posts from various posters at the Guardian
TFL Cycling - General cycling info from Transport for London
Cycle Lifestyle - online cycling magazine that promotes cycling. Lots of useful cycling information and reviews.
Wiggle - online cycle store , lot's of good deals
Evans Cycles - one of the biggest cycling store chains in the UK. Good thing is that they price match from other sites and also check out a 10% discount voucher at tfl.
