We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
Cranked #22is our ‘feed your curiosity’ issue. We take a trip to South Africa’s wine region to do stuff with bikes that’s best tackled, frankly, with a clear head, Tym Manley celebrates a 90s racer who was years ahead of his time, eBikes come of age with the start of a new race series, and we talk to three riders about their life-changing accidents – and what they’re doing about life in a wheelchair. Plus building trails and community in the desert, a magical history trail tour, why dropper posts are upside down, and the longest journey ever to buy an ice cream. Probably.
