A Girls' Cycling Compendium
The latest issue of the Compendium is now available to download or read online - or drop by to see us at the Cycle Show and nab one of the limited print run copies we'll have there. Including an insider interview with the design duo behind cult brand Twin Six, a surprisingly short 'all you need to do' yoga session created especially for Minx by Andria Davis, a first person account of just why you should be trying 'cross racing this winter - and an ever so slightly (but very useful) tongue in cheek guide to dealing with punctures. There's more of course, but why spoil it.....
Spring / Summer 2010
The Sneak Peek IssueIt's February, and Minx for one is gazing out at a grey wall of as-cold-as-it-possibly-could-be-before-it-turns-to-snow mizzle and riding in short sleeves again (or anything less than three layers frankly), seems a long way away. Sometimes a girl needs a little inspiration to work through the pain, so in customary fashionista style Minx brings you a preview of some of her favourite looks for the coming summer all beautifully interpreted by our fave design girl Nicole. Ride in style.
A Girls' Cycling Compendium
A Girls' Cycling Compendium came about because - well because we just fancied doing it for a bit of fun. A collection of random thoughts and articles by like-minded riders (mostly but not excusively girls). Everyone loved it and has spent the time since asking when we're doing another. The answer to that is NOW. It will be published online here for you to download every six weeks or so and include a Q&A section as well as stuff you never knew you needed to know but will be delighted to read anyway.
But until we get issue two finished, and for all those that didn't get to see the first one, click on the cover left to have a read. And if you're a budding writer / photographer/ artist with a contribution for the future, drop Minx a line via the contact page.
