A few weeks ago, we took the opportunity to travel to British Columbia to present Paved and Bike magazine photographer Stephen Wilde with a framed cover of the Fall issue. It features one of his images shot while on assignment for the ‘Zen to Zero’ story that can be found inside the issue. Written by Bike and Paved‘s Managing Editor, Brice Minnigh, it follows his enlightening—and grueling—ride on Taiwan’s Central Cross-Island Highway, the island’s highest road.
We hope you’ll enjoy the fruits of our labors, and be sure to check out the cover image and story once the issue hits newsstands on September 18.
