Westward Ho! The Blogspedition Visits Seattle
As with the blogspedition round-ups on Washington, DC, and New York City, this doesn’t purport to be a 100% exhaustive list of all bike blogs by women in Seattle. It’s a list of blogs I’ve found so far that tell me clearly the writer lives in Seattle.
This list doesn’t extend to the other cities in the region–it’s not all one big urban area called “Seattle” even if people who don’t live there may tend to think that way. So a woman blogging about biking in Renton or Bellevue isn’t on the list. I’ll do a King County round-up another day so don’t feel left out!
- Bicitoro: Jessie writes about bikes and crafts. A recent post covered a rain-soaked alleycat race, complete with some video. @jkwak on Twitter
- Blame it on the Rain: You will understand why I think this is a great blog to get women riding if you look at the post from June 21. @elisadeg on Twitter
- Car Free Days: Car-free family of four and they’re off on a big bike tour.
- Family Ride: Promoting everyday family biking by biking every day with two little ones, this blog was featured in the September/October 2011 issue of Momentum Magazine. @familyride on Twitter
- Iva Jean: The blog features some outstanding fashion/bike photography. The business is fashion design with some great bike-specific rain capes (suppose they need those in Seattle?) @ivajean on Twitter
- Karen Johanson Photography: Not exactly a blog, but some gorgeous professional photography of bikes and culture by @bikegrrl on Twitter
- living active: Salina writes about good food and staying active (sounds like balance, right?). @LivActiveSalina on Twitter
- Old Lady on a Bike: This one was defunct for a while but she started posting again. Go encourage her with comments!
- Pedal-Petal: Meghan Pinch describes herself as an urban homesteader; you’ll get some gardening and bee talk along with biking. @megbikes on Twitter
- The Main Tank: Another great family-oriented blog. @the_main_tank
- The Orangecomo Adventures: Check out some serious touring stories on this one along with some kayaking
- The Riding Reporter: Anne-Marije Rook (@amrook) provides great coverage of bike events, news, and culture
- Totcycle: @totcycle covers “tots on bikes, kids as cargo” and family biking in general
- Yoga for Bikers: Kelli Refer at @yogaforbikers covers about what you’d expect! Yoga offers a great balance for biking since it uses the upper body and is a weight-bearing exercise.
Possibly defunct–if you know the blogger, see if she wants to start writing again!
If you know of other women’s bike blogs in Seattle or anywhere nearby, drop a note here in the comments so it’s one handy spot for readers and then go to the big list of Women’s Bike Blogs and use the form there. I’ll check comments here but the form generates an email so that’s a better way to send the information for a future update of the page.
