2012 Cycling Blog Top Dogs

The votes are in, and it’s now time to crown the 2012 top dogs of the cycling blogs.  Although cycling blogs from all over the World were able to be voted on for each of the 6 categories, our Crank Honors results are primarily based on the audience that we bring in.  Now, our Loving the Bike traffic is at an all-time high and we had more votes come in this year than in the first two years combined….but the results are still representative of our following.  So the results might not be representative of the entire cycling population, but they are a fantastic indication of what our followers dig the most.

The most important thing as far as I’m concerned is that we celebrate all the great work done by my fellow cycling bloggers, and highlight some of those that have stood out to all of you.  We are part of a great online community of cyclists, and I personally know how much time and effort goes into putting out a blog…so to me, we’re all champions.

I hope you also discovered some new cycling blogs that you didn’t know about before, and will continue to support all of us.

Okay, here we go.  These are the blogs that received the most votes in each of the six categories.
