The year 2014 has been a great one for Tuvizo achieving the number one spot…
YouTube has taken the world by storm since its launching in February 2005. Its success has grown so much that according to the video-sharing giant’s statistics page, the number of hours that people have spent watching videos has increased by 60% year-on-year, the fastest growth that they have seen in the last two years.
YouTube is known as the second-largest online search engine. The video-sharing platform generates more content daily than all the three major networks (i.e. CBS, NBC, and ABC) combined.
Cyclists have also leveraged this platform to share their routines and experiences. While some create content on the more extreme side of cycling, there are also other YouTube personalities who focus their videos on diets, tips, tricks, and product reviews for their fellow cycling enthusiasts. Here are our top 10 channels for cyclists!
