Issue 106 - Empower
Empower – this is the keyword we based this very special issue around.
That word imbues this edition of Rouleur, whether emblazoned on fetching green casquettes, or at the core of the articles. Voices often unheard in cycling circles fill the 160 pages – special and inspiring people, telling joyful and diverse stories.
The simple pleasure of riding a bike should not be constrained by race, gender, sexuality or disability, yet so often these are barriers into entering the sport we love. We shine a light on those making a change.
Make a direct contribution to the cause and buy one of our limited edition Empower casquettes.
Racing in Sierra Leone, the spirit of Ubuntu with Qhubeka-NextHash, mentoring with The Cyclists’ Alliance, subverting norms with Legion of Los Angeles, changing the face of cycling in east London with Rapha and British Cycling – we have collaborated with the best in the world to look forward to an inclusive and all-embracing cycling of the future.
And we pose the question to a panel of experts in their respective fields: What’s the big idea? How do we actually make cycling better? Inclusivity, infrastructure, integration, inspiration – all the big topics.
Plus columns by Orla Chennaoui, Ned Boulting, Xylon van Eyck, Maria David and Toms Skujiņš.
