For those of you who aren’t following us on Facebook or Twitter, you may not have heard that the blog Loving the Bike published its 2012 Crank Honors. We were pretty pleased to learn that we had been named the best blog in cycling yet again. In a way, this means even more than the nod we got from Outside Online last winter.
I know, that sounds crazy. Why would a mention from a blog with traffic a fraction of what Outisde’s is mean more? Well, as it happens, this was a reader poll. So this wasn’t a list put together by some random person. It’s a measure of what you, our readers have to say about us. That some portion of you would go out of your way to tell others about our work means a great deal.
So while the obvious title for this post ought to be, “RKP Named Best Road Cycling Blog”, that’s a bit self-congratulatory, and honestly, it’s something many of you already believe, judging from this accolade. So the right thing to say is, thank you.
