, , | UltraRob | Monday, January 4th, 2010 at 8:33 am

It’s always interesting to see which blog posts end up being popular. I can tell you after 4 years of blogging, I’m not very good at knowing what will be popular.

Here are the top 10 most viewed posts on UltraRob’s Adventures in 2009. Actually I grouped the ones about the Leadville 100 or they would have dominated the top 10. Interestingly the #1 and #3 spots were the same as in 2008.

10. 7 Mountain Biking Confidence Killers

I wrote this post after riding in Moab in 2008 with a neglected bike. A poorly maintained bike along with other things will hurt your confidence on a mountain bike.

9. 2009 Cyclocross Season Almost Here

This post has a very brief overview of cyclocross and a preliminary 2009 Colorado cyclocross race schedule.

8. How I Use Hammer Nutrition and E-CAPS Products

This post has been popular since I wrote it when I was training for the 2006 Race Across America. I still use the Hammer Nutrition products pretty much the same way. My nutrition during the 2006 RAAM was only slightly different.

7. Going Glamping?

This post by Deb is about people that want nearly as much luxury camping as they do in a 5 star resort.

6. Livestrong Tattoo

When I broke my derailleur cable in the Black Hills of South Dakota, I visited Rabbit Bike in Hill City to get a new one. The owner had a Livestrong tattoo on his calf.

4. Mountain Biking Moab Slickrock Trail

The Slickrock Trail in Moab is a classic mountain bike ride. I’ve ridden it several times over the years and this is my ride report from March last year.

3. Leadville 100 MTB FAQ

With Lance Armstrong racing the Leadville 100 the last 2 years and the Race Across the Sky movie, there’s been a lot of interest in the race. The main Leadville 100 mountain bike FAQ page was the most popular but some of the sub posts also made it into the top 10. Spectating the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race and Lance Armstrong’s Leadville 2008 100 Bike also made it into the top 10.

2. Garmin Edge 705 Review – First Impressions

After not having a GPS on my bike or a computer at all on my mountain bike, I upgraded to the cool Garmin Edge 705. This post has my initial thoughts on it. Another Edge 705 post that was popular was Garmin Edge 705 Tip – Save Last Ride and Reset.

1. Top 5 Reasons Cyclists Shave Their Legs

The question I’m asked most about cycling is why do cyclists shave their legs. The 5 reasons I posted continue to be very popular. I also answer some questions in the Cyclist Leg Shaving Questions and Answers post.
