Woah cyclists! Pull on the breaks now because this might just rock your two-wheeled world. Think of a cycling magazine minus the pedal power protein shake fixy/non-fixy adverts you normally get and you will be peddling closer to what might just be one of the best publications we have seen.
And we’re not even talking alternative cycling here. There’s not a sniffle of an organic handle bar tape pitch to be seen, just great stories of bear eating aboard bike, inside apartment racing, crashes with chickens, Columbian bike workshops and visually impaired tandem cycling to name but a few.
And not only is Boneshaker a toe-itchingly exciting storyteller but it is also stuffed with brilliant illustrations, photography and art work from adventures world-wide all set within a rather snazzy design.
Are you sitting at your desk staring into the computer? Is there a landscape shot set to your desktop? Is your bike parked outside? You might just want to get on it.
