Treadlie (published twice a year) is for bike lovers, would be bike lovers and those that appreciate great bike design – a magazine devoted to culture, fashion and design.
Bikes and activism have always gone hand in hand, and the people in this issue certainly prove this point. Over in New Zealand, Emma McInnes is devoted to her admirable cause to make cities and transport not just easier, but safer for women (pg 38). Meanwhile in New York, Brendt Barbur created the Bicycle Film Festival to share the beauty of cycling with the world – and since 2001 he’s shared it hundreds of times, all over the globe (pg 56).
As a reader of Treadlie, I was always drawn to the stories of women and men dedicating their lives to
what they love, and this issue continues that legacy. Meet the dudes behind Bastion Cycles, who apply their past experience as Toyota engineers to bike building (pg 70); revel in Steven ompson’s drool-worthy classic bike collection (pg 30).
A personal highlight of mine is our Wheel & Pen illustration from Australian artist Edwin Tanner that dates back to 1955 (pg 21). With such a wide variety of people, places and, of course, bikes, I reckon readers are in for a treat. But don’t just take my word for it – turn the page!
