Like the best of bike rides: strange, meandering and coloured with serendipity. Across the
next sixty-odd pages we climb mythic peaks and tickle cycling’s counter-cultural underbelly,
finding not anguish at altitude but happy ghosts; finding not darkness but light-heartedness
and love amidst the freak-bikes and fire. We take a spin around the world’s smallest velodrome,
follow a girl as she races her visa allowance across China, consider the emotional power of
potholes and meet a man who’s building a recumbent crocodile. Like all the best rides, it’s
been a journey into the unexpected. Welcome to issue #13.
