Welcome to Southern Spokes,
Southern Spokes is a bike blog started in 2010 to document life on two wheels in the city of Mobile, AL. While not a bicyclist’s paradise, there is plenty of potential here in Mobile for a cycle friendly atmosphere. It’ll take some work. There are plenty of great people here that are willing to work for a more walkable and bikeable town.
Living in places that embrace walkable and bikeable communities is such an enhancement to quality of life. It’s hard to explain to people who have never experienced it. So the bloggers here have decided to do our little part and begin to “be the change you seek in the world” and ride and walk as much as possible. Our rides include commuting to work, going on bike dates with partners and friends, forming group rides for entertainment, etc. We try to promote cycling to locally owned businesses as much as possible.
Southern Spokes is a venue to capture life on two wheels through photography and the written word. We’ll also touch on healthy living, new urbanism, product reviews, bike advocacy and commuting. So feel free to comment if anything here peaks your interest!
