What’s going on?!

First Roll for the Soul closes at Xmas, now Boneshaker magazine announces that issue #20 will be their last. You can buy the magazine here, and also all the other lovely Boneshaking stuff.

Boneshaker will be missed and we wish all those involved the very best, a smooth road, with the wind at their backs.

Here’s what they say about it.

Dreams, danger, death. And a bittersweet moment. Boneshaker issue #20.

The year’s close quietly approaches. A time of endings and beginnings. As we look forward to the holiday ahead, to the new year beyond, we’ve got bittersweet news. Our beautiful new issue (with cover artwork by Sam Hadley), is also our final issue.

But it’s another belter. Here’s a taster: “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…”

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.

We want to give a huge thank you everyone who’s been involved, sharing stories and pictures, riding with us, reading our little mag, 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.

In the meantime, our web shop remains open for all your festive bike gift needs, with a range of prints, caps, books and beautiful magazines to enjoy. 

Happy reading and happy riding from Team Boneshaker
