Join us for The Ride

Bicycling is more than a sport. It's more than a hobby. It's a lifestyle. A passion. Some people get that, and some people don't.

Philip Diprose and the rest of the crew behind The Ride definitely get it. That's why they searched worldwide from their home in London for art and writing that captures the passion, from road racing to urban riding to commuting to mountain biking.

The result is a wonderful 146-page, limited-edition journal that features not only great images, but essays by guys like Sir Paul Smith, Greg LeMond, Charlie Kelly and ... me.

Yeah, they actually asked me to get involved. Where would the world be without crazy ideas, eh?

I'm proud to be part of it. Treat yourself to a numbered copy—only 1,000 were printed—for £8.50 (in the UK) or £12 (the rest of the world). That's about $24 for folks here in the U.S.

The Ride is available in several London bike shops, and from the online ordering site.

Congratulations on the book Tim. Sounds really interesting. It's pretty darn cool being included in a book with names like Greg LeMond.
Too bad it's sold out already. Hopefully they'll print more.

Yep, we're planning a reprint.
Tim is right at the start and makes a great beginning to something we're very proud of.

Those wanting to be told when the reprint has happened should email me at
the-ride@hotmail.co.uk

cheers
Philip

Yep got my copy yesterday and I'm very much impressed. I'm hoping to maybe get some of my stuff in there too. Good to see some prose from someone I like to read reguarly
