Spinwell in Le Francais GQ.

December 19, 2010

Last Friday I had a pleasant surprise, by way of a January 2011 issue of Le Francais GQ magazine landing on my doormat at 9:15 in the morning. I flicked through it and straight to the L’Eroica piece. My pal Matthew Sparkes, tash and all on one page and a few of my words on the other. Buzzing!

Fancy a read? Head over to the Rock n Rollin’ Cycling team for hi-res scans!

Want!

Bicycle Quarterly.

October 21, 2010

What? How do I not know of this?

I clicked on the webpage and instantly thought I was looking at someone’s paper-magazine collection from decades ago. Mistaken. This is a modern magazine. Like, made now, today. Awesome. I want a read.

They say:Bicycle Quarterly is a magazine for discerning cyclists, who enjoy their bikes, whether on a weekend ride, commuting, randonneuring, racing or touring the countryside. In Bicycle Quarterly, you find professionally written articles about a variety of topics rarely covered in the “mainstream” cycling press.

Go seek.

Mo Rapha. Rouleur No. 19

August 5, 2010

The nineteenth issue of Rouleur, published in July of 2010, includes 148 pages with an exclusive look at some of the best racing photography ever taken in Britain; an interview with living legend Bernard Hinault; the second part of our series on the life of a young aspiring rider – as well as images from world-renowned photographer Nadav Kander. The photography in this issue was taken by Gerard Brown, Taz Darling, Ben Ingham and Nadav Kander.

Another great issue it seems.

Rad with a capital R.

May 13, 2010

In an interesting project French designer Philippe Starck got together with Intersection Magazine to build a soapbox car. The car comes without engine, without steering and without brakes and as you can imagine, looks beautiful.

Wow. Just the other day I was talking with my mom and dad about a little car I had when I was a young boy in the early 80s. It was a tiny yellow pedal powered AA car with room, of course for two. Lest we also forget the inherent fixed gear contained in this plastic shelled piece of awesome and with a fixed gear came handbrake turning, sans the hands.

I’m talking, pulling up to my boys outside the garages, round the corner from my house using the ‘sans hands handbrake’ method. Priceless. Remember too, my sh*t unlike the starck x intersection soapbox car, had steering.

My pedal powered car, great as it was though, had NOTHING on this:

Rouleur 17.

April 6, 2010

It’s fair to say that Rouleur, since I discovered it is the only magazine that I can manage to read with the utmost of interest, cover to cover without being bored and I have no doubt that issue 17 ( out now ) will be the same.

Swoop yours here.
BTW. Have you seen how much issue No.1 is fetching these days? This one went for an astonishing £113!

Featuring in Embrocation.

March 24, 2010

So, thanks to my good friend Joseph I managed to get some of my work into issue 5 of the fantastic magazine called Embrocation. Page 26 features two of my photographs which serve to enlighten the words of Joe himself.

It’s a short piece, on the strangeness of driving ( yes driving, not cycling ) over two of southern France’s monster Cols: the Galibier and the Telegraphe. We drove over these beasts last year on our way from Annecy ( our spiritual home ) to do our final climb – Alpe D’Huez. One word on the Galibier – Baron. That said we had nothing but good times and this year we don’t drive them, we ride.

Nice work Joe and infinite big ups.
