Boneshaker Magazine Issue 20 is out now. Well, a bittersweet moment. The final issue – at least in this format. Issue 20 goes a little something like this: “Dreams and danger and death. Riding through the redemptive night. Building fire-breathing disco trikes, seeking secret sexy hideaways, eating kangaroo in the outback, laughing in the red dust of distant lands, finding powerful poetry amid race day’s rush… yet again our contributors have drawn deep on the rich, strange potion of pedal-driven existence.
What feels different is that this issue will be our last. After more than eight years and 1500 pages of freedom, friendship and adventure, of politics and poetry, ink and dreams, we’re ready to move onto something new. We’ve loved the journey so far, and we hope the inspiration we’ve shared and the wonderful community that’s grown around it will live on. Thank you to everyone who’s been involved, sharing stories and pictures, riding with us, feeding our enthusiasm for the mystic beauty of life on two wheels.
This is not goodbye, just farewell for now. We’re not ending, we’re evolving. Keep your ears to the ground…”
