We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

Puddles and Splashing

This also happened while we were out of town, a muddy CX race with Mark V in the water hazard like a kid splashing through puddles. As he told me, “Lotsa mud and sand; destroyed some bearings AND the coup de grace on my front carbon wheel. Wore thru the carbon sidewall.”

A day for disc brakes, eh?

In 2012, Nick Czerula made a book about bicycle maker Richard Sachs. For a limited time, he’s made itavailable online via the Adobe Slate app.

It’s beautiful.

NYT: Straddling the Apple-Google, App-Web Divide


Our first magazine cover from June 2013, the bikescape banner has changed just a bit since the blog launched 9 years ago

The New York Times takes a look at how small publishers get tripped up by Google and Apple’s fight for mobile web dominance. The article includes quotes from me about Bike Hugger:

“We’re spending more time thinking about what Google and Apple are going to do than when we were just doing desktop publishing,” he said. “They can change on a dime and pull the rug out from under you, like when Google cut off news feeds and Apple decided to allow ad blocking.”

If you’re visiting us for the first time from the article, thanks for clicking through. You’ll find our magazine app on iTunes and the Web. Also find us on the Google Play Newsstand.

As I said in the article, “We evolved as our audience and tech did,” starting from a niche blog about urban and bike commuting to a cycling lifestyle outlet across several social channels, and platforms. For our long-time followers, thanks for reading us, and I hope you were as excited as we were to see Bike Hugger in the New York Times.

Now, back to editing and writing Issue 29, it’s about Cyclocross, and drops this week.

To the battle between Apple and Google for the web, indies like us are speaking the loudest by surviving, at this point.
