Tammy Thorne, editor-in-chief of Toronto's new local cycling magazine Dandyhorse, has sent us a few more details about the Spring 2009 launch party, and what you'll find inside the new issue. Wednesday April 29th, 7pm-midnight, Amsterdam Brewery, 21 Bathurst. $5 including magazine, free for subscribers, Bike Union members, and contributors.
This issue features handmade bicycle pioneer Mike Barry and the Mariposa's that inspired the art of Greg Curnoe. We also take a critical look at “dooring” in Toronto; discuss the ethics of scavenging abandoned bikes; meet a plastic-free year-round cyclist, and revisit the Cycle Messenger World Championships of ’95, along with other stories about commuting, fashion, art, local history, advocacy, BMX, new products, and much more.
Dandyhorse will be available to the public on May 2 in our featured local locations listed below, and after May 9 in other better book, bike and boutique shops. For more details see dandyhorse.com
In keeping with the spirit of human powered fun, Dandyhorse will be delivered to local locations around the city by a team of cyclists! If you have some free time on Saturday May 2nd, or the weekend of May 9th-10th, contact David Janzen for all the details. Cyclists with trailers or cargo-bikes would be especially helpful!
