Boneshaker Bicycle Stories Volume I
This luxurious 220-page book is a collection of some of our favourite moments from our first 10 printed issues, which are now sold out worldwide.
It's a mix of thoughts from the saddle, photography and illustration celebrating the poetry and politics of life on two wheels. Many of the features are reproduced faithfully, as they appeared in the original magazines - others we've added to, or given the design a little extra love.
It features a double-gatefold cover and foil-block printing on the cover and spine.
We're releasing this book now to give you a chance to explore how Boneshaker's evolved since our wide-eyed beginnings with issue 1.
We printed 1,000 copies of that first issue, so we've decided to do the same with this anthology – creating a limited edition celebration of what we've achieved so far.
The book is dedicated to all our readers and contributors, without whom Boneshaker would not exist. Thank you. Long may you ride.

Two brave wheels. The wilderness beckoning.
Riding out across this issue are paint-fox-hunting city races, explorations across Europe, Asia and the Americas, thoughts on the poetry of departure and the mystery of retelling the ride on your return. You’ll find our first cyclists’ directory amidst a drift of thoughts from saddles familiar and far-flung. As ever, we’ve loved all the surprises and strangeness along the way. We hope you do too.
