The Ride Magazine

It’s a rare bike magazine that relies on word nerds and the literary inclined to keep a project afloat, but The Ride is sustaining itself so far having just released issue number five. This may be a testament to the aesthetic attention to detail or just plain good writing. I would tell you to decide for yourself and order the latest issue, but they printed a limited run that was so limited they sold out! Fortunately, they offer past issues for a free download on their site in case you don’t live near any of their sellers.

The Ride also offers select articles to peruse from past issues, one even penned by Greg Lemond! If you’re looking for something a little more literary and artsy, but without neglecting your cycling passion, The Ride might be worth your time.
