London Cyclist’s Top 50 Cycling Blogs 2010

London Cyclist has published their Top 50 Cycling Blogs list for 2010. Topping the list is Richard Masoner’s always excellent Cyclelicious, followed by Bike Portland and BikeSnob NYC. No surprises there. What is surprising was seeing EcoVelo at 14th position. Thanks Andreas; we’re honored and pleased. Here’s a bit about the criteria used to rank the sites:

I visit every single cycling blog I’ve ever heard of and I note down certain things such as the number of comments in the last 5 posts (excluding most recent post), Alexa rank and Google inlinks.

Then each of the attributes gets a score, it is normalised and an average is calculated. It basically involves a lot of Excel formulas and plenty of data checking!

I also have a few criteria’s such as: the blogs have to be active and not aimed solely at selling stuff.

    I Love London!!

    First, they invent something as wonderful as a Tweed Ride; now, they acknowledge the dedication and hard work of two of our very favorite people on the planet!

    And to those that haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting Alan and Michael, I want to tell the world that you’ll never find a couple of nicer, more sincere people anywhere; they are truly a shining light, and if you have the chance to meet them, you’ll be a better person for it.

    Love,
    Rick and Erin
