Everybody needs a good read now!

Sometimes, it’s good to take a break from the news, turn off our screens, and immerse ourselves in a good read. Now this need is more urgent than ever, and so we’re preparing a second mailing of the new Bicycle Quarterly this week – sooner than originally planned.

Before you even open the Spring 2020 BQ, you’ll be amazed by an amazing bicycle tour of the Peruvian Andes on the cover. Karen Yung’s words and Donalrey Nieva’s stunning photos take you to remote roads in that far-away place – a perfect way to keep our dreams alive.

Equally inspiring is Paulette Porthault’s incredible life story. An active cyclist for 70 years, she rode for the great constructeurs Barra, Narcisse, Herse and Routens. She won the Poly de Chanteloup hillclimb race during the war. And she never stopped smiling!

Those are just two of the great stories in this exciting edition. Click here to subscribe today, and we’ll dispatch your copy of this exciting edition without delay. Thank you!

    Love the latest edition, a great break from the realities of the day. I was wondering if the route info for the Cascade foothills ride is available anywhere on line?

    Great balance of topics in this month’s issue Jan! Some recent BQ volumes have felt more like “Mountain Bike Quarterly”, with lots of emphasis on modern fat tired/ disc braked bikes and off road/trail riding that don’t happen to fit my own interests. However the current issue has a great mix of both vintage and contemporary content. Thanks for all the very enjoyable reading and photographs spanning many different eras!
