    The Ride Journal Issue #7

Cycle fanatics take note, Issue 7 of The Ride Journal is an absolute beauty

Posted by James Cartwright,

Whenever The Ride journal comes through the letterbox I get a palpable sense of excitement about what I’m going to find inside. As a design lover, illustration fanatic and interminable bike-bore it’s got more or less everything I require from a publication; even the advertising makes me salivate. But it’s the personal stories that keep me coming back to this generous piece of print, and the offerings in Issue 7 are as good as you’ll find anywhere. With a confessional from Olympic hero Bradley Wiggins, an account of the haphazard nature of the 1967 Tour de France as well as a phenomenal amount of illustration from the likes of Jack Hughes, Kate Moross, Sergio Membrillas and photography from the incredible Emily Maye, it’s hard to see what more the Diprose brothers could pack in to 200 pages. Even if you don’t give two hoots about cycling (and there’s plenty who don’t) the imagery alone warrants picking up a copy. Just don’t blame us if it provokes an unhealthy new obsession with the sport.
