Why? A million reasons, but mainly we feel that the bike blog world has grown so much in the last few years that there are now plenty of strong women out there, riding bikes and telling their stories. After 3+ years, we don’t have much more to add to the discussion and more enjoy hearing what other bloggers have to say. Also, these days we prefer to just ride, and not worry so much about taking photos or waxing poetically about potholes (It doesn’t help that we were each others favorite riding partners, and our distance means that riding is just not as blog-worthy!).
Thank you so much for all of your support and love. I can say with all honesty that when we first starting riding, it was this community that helped us keep going – helping to figure out what to wear in rain, heat and cold; decide which pedals to chose; which bike(s) to consider; how to commute over a mountain; how to handle being girls in a boys club…I could go on. You people were our biggest cheerleaders and, more often than not, more supportive than people in our backyard (luckily, that has changed and both Bham and NOLA have thriving cycling community!). We can’t thank you enough.
Don’t fret, Anna and I will still be riding. We may not see you here, but we will see you on the roads. Anna will attempt to blog more at the Bici Cooperative site, so if you’re really curious about what they have going on in the ‘ham, check it out.
For a complete list of ladies bike blogs, check out Let’s Go Ride A Bike (who I feel like are our bike blog sisters!)’s list. Those ladies did the work for us. We will be reading and cheering everyone on in their journeys!
