We knew this issue would be something special when a knight of the realm offered to do a trackstand for us in Collins St! We caught up with (Sir) Paul Smith while he was opening his new Australian store and talked fashion and bicycles, as you do. The specialness continued when Sarah Ward, or was it Yana Alana, rocked up to our photo shoot in gold leggings, could it possibly get any better? We discovred some people making bespoke chainrings and also visited the amazing Kumo Cycles. Photographer Wouter van de Voorde took us cycling around Canberra while Val Nagle helped us build the perfect summer bike, a randonneur. There’s much much more inside, make sure you get your hands on a copy of Treadlie #9!
