What a pleasure it is to see cycling on the cover of a magazine on the New Yorker. For this forthcoming October 26th issue, artist R. Kikuo Johnson normalizes cycling as a form of legitimate transportation, even with a child in tow. While it does create a bit of visual conflict with public transit, not automobiles, we can look past that as an unintended byproduct of the artist’s vision. Hopefully, there will be more pro-cycling and transportation advocacy articles within the pages of the New Yorker. Check out the full cover below…

“It’s the wind in your hair; two brave wheels and the horizon. Boneshaker is a perfect-bound publication with a strong design aesthetic and contributors from all over the world. We’ve celebrated the chrome-shining custom rides of the Sudan, investigated rebel bicycle gangs in LA, hit the dirt roads of New Mexico. Bespoke framebuilders, bike polo champions and bold activists have told us their tales. We’re for road cyclists, downhillers, fixie freaks, couriers, commuters, tourers, BMX bandits and everyone in between.
No training tips, race diets or adverts. It’s not how much your bike weighs that matters, but where it takes you. It’s not how fast you got there, but what you saw along the way.”
