About That Blog Life // Recommended Reading
Whether you have been cycling since birth or have just recently gotten into it, you might have noticed the strong community around the sport. Whether you are riding for fun, casually commuting, racing competitively, cyclocrossing, tricking or whatever else - you are part of that community.
The internet is also a big part of it, whether you like it or not. Setting trends, making fun of them, announcing and covering events, reviewing products or simply documenting the lifestyle. We appreciate the bloggers, the forums and the people that help grow the sport and always want to give credit where credit is due. So, without further ado - check out our quick list of featured blogs and recommended daily reading:

ProllyIsNotProbably.com // by John WatsonJohn "Prolly" Watson invented blogging. Ok, maybe not - but he is pretty much the godfather of the cycling blog world. John continuously churns out amazing photosets, product reviews, event coverage, and even ventures into creating products every once in a while. Don't be frightened by his viking-esque beard or taste in music, he's definitely worth checking out on the daily.

You can thank this guy, Patrick Thames, who has been running the PedalConsumption site for years now. Patrick is always on point with his content selection and photography. He seems to always have a new product coming out and has been a long time supporter of City Grounds. Visit PedalConsumption.com >>

He's developed a pretty amazing site called Pedal Room, where users can upload bike builds, comment on others, sell/buy used goods, and much more. I'm on it, most of our staff is on it and you should be too. Visit PedalRoom.com >> --------------------------
