Issue 01: Letter

Introducing Bike Hugger Magazine, our first issue.

Bike Hugger is bike culture blogged and this is our new magazine. For 7 years, we’ve blogged the bike and built an audience in social media channels. Now it’s time for a magazine on your iOS devices. Expect the same distinctive voice, ad-free, with more length, and touch interface.

We hope you enjoy this issue because your subscription revenues directly support the writing, editing, and production of Bike Hugger Magazine. We’re proud of the fact that our content is free of the pressures and influences of advertisers and that we call things as we see them. In the magazine, we’ll offer the same opinionated take on the bike with greater length and richer reporting.

Swipe through to read the feature on Budnitz Bicycles, Rapha’s take on the new road ethic, Mark V’s rants, and vignettes from me. Also thanks for downloading the app and props to Chris Mahan from Old School Design for the cover art.

Ed. note: After a good run of 42 issues, our magazine app is no longer available, but we’ve archived the content here on our blog. 

We're riding townies, adventure, and mountain bikes. Find recommendations on our store page. As Amazon Associates we earn from qualifying purchases.
