In This Issue
The May issue is on newsstands—or find it digitally here—and it’s filled with binge-worthy tales of adventure and big personalities.
In “The Kora,” Bike’s editor-at-large Brice Minnigh, photographer/filmer Joey Schusler and Sam Seward, venture deep into southwest China’s Himalaya to attempt a rite of passage so daunting that it’s deemed holy by Tibetans if one can complete it on his or her own two feet. Using bikes, the crew seeks karmic salvation on their pilgrimage of purification far from civilization.
Timed with the upcoming release of the highly anticipated “Gamble” film, Minnigh talks to Loic Bruni, the fiery young Frenchman and dominate World Cup downhill racer, about his experience taking a rare turn outside the race tape and in front of the camera while shooting—an opportunity to get loose without the pressure and pinpoint precision that World Cup racing demands.
Find these two feature, classic columns such as “The Grimy Handshake” and “Butcher Paper,” along with gear reviews and much more. Available now.
