In issue 8 of Treadlie we talk to the fabulous Clare Bowditch about cargo bikes and happiness. On the darker side we also find out how Perth artist Stormie Mills go his ‘thing’ for bikes and the nooks and crannies of our cities that they allow him to explore. We visit CPW, a kooky little bike shop in Tokyo and take a look at the world of freestyling; fixed and bmx! There’s a fabulous interview with Brisbane based poet and arts producer Eleanor Jackson, an interview with the guys behind Bikes for Africa and our publisher, Tom, crosses the line and joins the peloton raising funds with Paceline. Plus of course all the goodies in toolkit, our Centrefold, Back Pedal and Off Street Parking and of course Treadlie St.
