great American rail-trail
One of my recent finds is the Dirt Bum blog. It's by a guy who enjoys exploring the back roads of Kansas on his bike. I think what really caught my attention was his information about the time he spent riding a couple different recumbents. I usually assume (sometimes incorrectly) that people who ride recumbents are more into the scenery, relaxation, and recreation of riding rather than the speed & competition. Since that's my style of biking, it's fun to read the experiences of like-minded individuals
Of course I had to ask, in the comments section of the blog, if he'd had any experience on rail-trails. I know that Kansas is home to the Prairie Spirit Rail Trail and a few smaller ones also.
Don't get me wrong. Sometimes I enjoy biking the back roads. But when I really want to relax and enjoy my biking, nothing beats a good rail-trail.
I'd love to continue exploring blogs that are related to trails, bicycling, and active travel. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment. I love to get reader feedback about the other favorite blogs out there.
