Enduro Issue 13

Enduro_13

The latest issue of Enduro has upped the ante even further by including more articles that reflect the riding scene at large:  an informed discussion about rider insurance at events, bike tourism at the bottom of Victoria, and a piece I wrote about what racing means for women who are new to the sport (and the support structures are out there to make the experience seem less daunting).  There are also some interesting interviews, reviews, and a timely piece by Russ Baker reflecting on the Aussie rider history at the 24 hour solo world champs.

As much as I love getting my hands on a new issue, I always feel a bit torn while reading it – do I keep turning pages, or do I soak up the inspiration and head out for a ride?!…

Pedal Pushers Online

Pedal Pushers Online is a cycling e-zine based in New York.  Their events coverage is photo heavy with written accounts favouring the experience of participants over commentary style reports of results.  If you’re keen to know more, follow this link for a story I wrote after the inaugral BMC Mountains-to-Beach which took place last March.   There’s also an interesting story on there about the US Cyclocross Champs (“45 Minutes”) if you dig around.  Sounds intense(ly fun)!

Enduro Issue 12

Enduro#12_cover1Enduro#12_cover2Enduro is one of those mags which has grown in response to the dynamic Aussie riding scene.  This is reflected in the way that the quality and diversity of content just keeps getting better with every issue – something that makes me proud to be involved.

Issue 12 gave me the chance to interview endurance riding hardnut, Naomi Hansen.  She’s an inspiring woman on and off the bike, and also wrote her own story about the Absa Cape Epic race recently competed in South Africa.  There’s a ton of other cool stuff in there too, but I wouldn’t want to spoil the thrill of flipping through the pages and finding out for yourself.  Get one while they still have “new magazine” smell!

Freewheel Issue 34

Freewheel 34 The latest Freewheel mag has arrived just in time to up the training motivation over winter (or keep you company on the couch instead)!

It features a stack of interviews, trendy fixie/singlespeed reviews and a thoughtful piece on the riding lifestyle in Japan.  It taps into the Aussie National MTB scene and takes a peep at Melbourne’s recent track Cycling World cup as well.  I have a piece in there on the BMC Mountains-to-Beach.  I hope you enjoy the read.

Enduro Issue 11

issue-111 Issue 11 is packed with more great stories, interviews and reviews.  It also has some new features including columns, a chat within the bike industry and a training Q & A with Aussie mountain biking legend, Mark Fenner.  I have a few pieces of writing in there too.

It’s out now at all good newsagents, or at your door if you subscribe.  Come on, you know you want to!
