We’re happy to say that grit.cx issue 007 is finished, and on its way to the printer. We are particularly stoked for this issue, as it’s full of awesomeness. We’re sure you’ll agree.
What, exactly, can you expect in issue 007? Here’s a very quick tease:
With issue 007 of grit.cx, we’ll turn our drop bar bikes off the cyclocross course, and transition them to getting out and exploring the road less travelled. We’ll take some bicycle adventure is all corners of the world, and we’ll learn what we should be doing, and what it’s like, during the non-cyclocross season. Additionally, we’ll give a tip of the helmet to the legacy of Sven, and give a wink to James Bond.

A Rouleur in America – Henri Manders, from the Netherlands, won a stage of the Tour de France in 1985…the brutal stage that finished in Roubaix that year. In 2014, Henri suffered a stroke, and his doctors told him to take it easy. So what did he do? He set off for a solar-powered electric-assist bicycle tour of the United States, of course. Ted Burns shares this touching story.
