Cover of issue 8 of The Ride Journal, illustrated by Shan Jiang


Launched in 2008 The Ride Journal continues its commitment to great design, photography and illustration, not to mention excellent coverage of all things two wheeled.

Diprose is also art director of Wired magazine and – as something of a labour of love – TRJ has grown from 80 pages to some 200 over the five years it’s been going. Contributors are unpaid, as are the founders who donate any profits made from sales to a series of charities.

Aimed at people who “don’t want to be pigeon-holed as roadies, freeriders, track racers, BMXers, XC riders or even commuters”, the RJ is for those who are “just riders”. It’s also clearly for people who like to see great illustration and photography in print, as the selection below testifies.

Issue 8 of The Ride is available to order from theridejournal.com now (£10.50) and from good bike and design stores from January 18.
