The longest mountain bike trail in the world: OROGENESIS. It’s an idea now, but with your help we’re going to make it real. Ever since the early days of the Repack riders, mountain bikers have dreamed about a trail that spans the mountain ranges of the North American continent. Now, 40 years later, we’re building it. In 2016, the instantly popular Baja Divide bikepacking route landed on maps and, shortly afterward, the Oregon Timber Trail appeared as well. It was obvious that we needed to connect the two. Five years and five thousand miles later, here we are. A new way on old ground.
Broken and Coastal’s 6th Issue has Dropped with All Proceeds Supporting Ride for Racial Justice
Broken and Coastal are psyched to announce the release of their 6th print issue.
In 2020, Broken and Coastal set out to further disrupt the norm by turning their small magazine project into a platform to not only support storytellers, photographers, and designers but to give back to their community by donating the proceeds from each issue to charity.
Proceeds of the sixth edition will benefit Ride for Racial Justice, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that exists to ensure access to resources, education, and community for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) cyclists and to dismantle systemic racism so that EVERYONE can feel safe, free, and empowered to ride a bicycle.
“This is not just a publication you will want to read once. It’s a coffee-table worthy product to look back on for years to come, and a movement you can get behind,” said San Agustin.
Broken and Coastal is a studio focused on creating content that enriches the human experience. The Broken and Coastal journal is an independent print magazine for cyclists with courage — the non-traditionalists and the rule-breakers who dare to live life outdoors. A platform for change, we created this magazine to empower storytellers, inspire creativity, give to charity, support our communities and do our part in making the world a better place.

The Last Issue of Broken and Coastal is Now Available: Featuring All WTF Contributors
Our friends at Broken & Coastal announced the final issue of their wonderful print magazine. Here’s the info, straight from the source!
It’s easy to look at cycling and the outdoors as a place that brings people together, regardless of religion, skin color, sexuality, gender identity, or economic status—but this is not always the case. Even in 2020, there is still a huge fight for equality and representation in this industry, and there’s an equally huge need for allies in this fight.
Volume 05 of Broken & Coastal is dedicated to the badass women, trans, and non-binary folks that are leading the way in creating change in the cycling industry. Professional mountain biker, Veronique Sandler brings her dreams to life in the film Vision; photographer Tasha Lindemann reflects on Women’s Weekend at the legendary Catty/Posh trails; elite cyclist Ivy Audrain finds new meaning on the bicycle; and so much more.
Inspired to do our part in making the world a better place, we’re also swearing in a new role for the magazine as a tool to inspire creativity and give back to charity, starting with this issue. Proceeds from Volume 05 will be donated to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit that provides crisis-intervention and suicide-prevention services to LGBTQ and queer-questioning youth nationwide.
We’re working on becoming a nonprofit as part our purpose-driven shift, so this process will definitely evolve, but for now we’re keeping it super simple and super transparent.
Here’s how it works: We’re offering the magazine on a sliding scale starting at $20. It cost us approximately $10 per issue to produce and print Volume 05, so if you pay $20, $10 will go to charity, and so on. The more money you contribute, the more money we can donate.
We are starting at $20 due to the global pandemic, but we know that some have been especially impacted, and we want to help. If you’ve been affected by COVID-19 and you want a print, message us for a discount code and we’ll ship you a copy for half the price. As always, you can find digital versions of all five issues of Broken & Coastal on our website.
