All cycling life is here in third issue of one of our favourite tree-based publications

Issue 3 of The Ride Journal is unleashed on the cycling world this Monday featuring the usual eclectic mix of thought provoking  and inspiring articles, photographs and illustration covering the full spectrum of the pedal-powered experience. Click on our gallery to read an excerpt – Mike Cotty's tribute to his back crew in this summer's Race Across the Alps – which is if anything even harder than it sound.

Inside this issue runs the full spectrum from late Thirties road racing to mountainbiking in Pakistan, getting arrested in New York to winning the downhill world championships. Road, mountain bike, bmx, freeride, commuting everyday. Everyone fits into the ride journal.

There's also Portland cyclo cross (there's some pics in our gallery), and a photo story of large format BMX photos  by George Marshall (also in the gallery).
As of Monday 9th November you can order a copy from The Ride Journal website or visit one of their ever expanding network of national and international stockists.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the team. He's remarkably good at it.
