A finalist for the 2009 Blog of the year!


Every morning I routinely check to see how many hits I have on my blog. And to my pleasant surprise I discovered that I had well over my usual number. You can say I had an astronomical amount that was worthy of a look.

The good folks over at Competitive Cyclist named yours truly, as a finalist for the 2009 blog of the year. I was floored and here are their kind words...


"Another finalist is the Cycling Art Blog. It purports to be about both cycling and art, but mercifully it sticks mostly to cycling and it's a sure daily (or so) fix of photos you've never seen before with just enough narration to teach you a postcard-length history lesson. It's not just vintage stuff, either. It covers all eras. The Cycling Art Blog does perhaps the most noble thing a blog can do: Every day giving you 30 seconds of complete escape."


Although I didn't win. I am more than happy to be a finalist. Again, I would like to extend my warm wishes to the kind folks at Competitive Cyclist!

You lost against a FISH-blog??? I think that is too cool. And the winner actually isn't all that good anyway. That is too much of a mess to really follow. So you get the German Underground Bike Blog Award of 2009 from me. Keep on doing it your way!

I agree with CC about your blog, so congrats! It's bookmarked at my house! On another note ... my wife caved-in and gave me one of my Christmas gifts early ... a Rapha Belgian cap! Now I really feel like Freddy Maertens on my cold, Northern Illinois rides! ("Hell of The North" has it's own meaning here!)Merry Christmas to you and all other road men and women! Ciao!
