Velo Vixen #1

by Rachel Krause

We are super excited to be carrying “Velo Vixen: A Zine About Women and Bicycling.” Rachel Krause in Kansas City has created a thoughtful, useful, well-edited compilation of essays, stories, and images in classic zine cut and paste style. Contributions include essays with names like “Rage on!” and “Why Bikes > Sex,” a visual tutorial for converting a child trailer to a cargo hauler, statements by a bunch of different women about what they feel like before and after a bike ride, and tons of inspiring vintage images of women on two wheels. (Oh yeah, and Elly has an essay in this one!)

It’s all summed up in the zine’s tag line: “Ride a lot. Sweat a lot. And love a lot. It’s a great day to ride a bike."
