Milestones are a cyclist’s friend. There by the roadside, paint flaking, perhaps coiling with ivy, they remind you how far you’ve come, tell you how far you have to go, reassure you that you’re on the right track. People often talk of birthdays as milestones – waymarks on the journey through life, whose unknowable ultimate destination we all share. Boneshaker’s reached issue 10 – a milestone in all these senses. And a bit like a birthday. But it’s not just our birthday: Boneshaker would not – could not – exist without the wonderful people who share their stories and their pictures, and who keep the dream alive by reading it. So slip a couple of beers into your pannier alongside this here issue, roll out to your favourite spot and join us in celebrating. Happy birthday to us; happy birthday to you.
