The Ride Journal

The Ride Journal is most definitely one of the most beautiful magazines I've clapped my eyes on. Printed on nice thick matte paper which only adds to the illustrious feel.
They say: “Born, as all good things are, out of a conversation over Mexican food and Pacifico beers, The Ride is an all encompassing read. We know that most people who share our obsession with bikes don’t want to be pigeon-holed as roadies, freeriders, track racers, BMXers, XC riders or even commuters. They are just riders. So we wanted to create something for them, and also for us. Something that crosses both cycling and international borders.”
The look of the mag was also high on their list of priorities, “As well as the incredible writing we also wanted the magazine to be equally strong visually. Artists, illustrators, photographers were all approached and they have helped give The Ride the stunning visual style it has.”
For the first 5 issues, I Love Dust have illustrated the cover and parts of the content too. Seriously, how amazing are these:

I Love Dust, say this on the matter, “We have been working alongside Andrew Diprose since the beginning of The Ride Journals life and have worked on 4 covers to date. 
Each cover takes a look at different aspects of biking and is designed to reflect the season in which it is released.” All marvellous. Im the proud owner of issues 4 & 5.
