Summer is upon us, and it’s the perfect time to sink your teeth into the latest issue of Boneshaker, which we have loaded with great stories and news from the bicycle home front. Think of it like gourmet trail mix—you know, the kind with bits of crystallized ginger and chocolate chips. There’s plenty of fuel here to keep you going when the road gets long and the going tough. Enjoy Marc-Andre Chimonas’ handy guide to manufacturing your own chain-keeper. Flip ahead to more from graphic novelist Maureen Foley, and the continuing adventures of Smidge and Space. Brush up on your bike shop etiquette with a cheat-sheet from Jacob English, owner of Mountain Road Cycles in Ohio. In our latest issue, you’ll find dreams and their interpretations, Dutch cookies, a kangaroo, and a celebration of the new moon. Because it can be dangerous out there on the open road, we bring you bike safety statistics, poems on healing after a hurt, and messages to send to your fellow riders. Because the best medicine is found somewhere between laughter and tears, we’re including a hilarious found poem courtesy of Craigslist, and an excerpt from Johnathon Allen’s non-fiction novel Doppelganger Effect. Top it off with a profile of Yendra’s tricycle built for beer, and you’ve got your summer reading cut out for you. Cheers, and here’s to you, bicycle army!
