Cycling-related link collection

(all of them open in new windows)

IHPVA - probably the largest available information source you can find about human-powered vehicles, boats, aircraft and the like. Especially useful is the archive of technical journal Human Power.

City by bike (formerly Prague by bike) - city cycling information website. Czech only, but their detailed cycling map of the Czech republic is useful even without translation.

Sheldon Brown's web - lots and lots of technical info about bikes and bike parts.

Physiology crash course - how the human body works, how it generates energy and how to use it for training. Written by a sport physician / racing cyclist. (Czech)

EHPVA - relatively new european HPV association. They publish e-magazine EuSupino once per year.

Myra VanInwegen wrote a collection of interesting articles about cycling, from reviews through technical instructions to tips for safe riding both onroad and offroad.

iFavorit - Ivo's web about Favorit and Eska bikes and various other vehicles. (Czech)

The ultimate guide to bike geometry and handling - definitions and descriptions of all dimensions and angles which determine handling and ergonomic qualities of a bicycle. Focuses mainly on mountain bikes, but much of the stuff applies universally.

Nutzrad.de - a blog about utility bikes. Among other things, it contains a catalogue of most (if not all) manufacturers and models. (German)

Coverage map of the endemic existence of recumbent bikes in Czech Republic and Slovakia. (Czech)

Utility cycling technology - a blog focused mostly at cargo e-bikes. The author is even crazier than me, but has interesting ideas and built a really neat compact cargo hauler.

Auto*mat - an activist association struggling for better infrastructure for non-motorized transport in Prague. Also organizes some critical mass rides. (Czech)

Carbusters - almost the same, just a little bit more radical.

Lehokolo.com - an internet magazine about recumbent bikes. Czech only, but there's not much to read and the photos are rather self-explanatory. Last update in 2012.

No tech magazine - a blog about solving problems using as little complex technology as possible. Great source of inspiration and links to other sources, if you don't mind the occassional praise of Good Old Times.

Yehuda Moon - a cycle-related webcomic.

Bikeyface - another cute webcomic.
