Cycling is about the closest thing to a silver bullet that policymakers around the world have to improve life in cities especially, but everywhere. People choosing to cycle saves space on roads that are otherwise congested with motor vehicles. Cycling causes no pollution, save for the initial manufacturing impact. When people cycle, they become fitter and less vulnerable to the diseases and problems of sedentary lifestyles, which has the knock-on effect of reducing the financial burden on health services. There’s a good argument that cycling to work instead of driving or using public transport is good for mental health (it also gets you there bang on time, and more alert). Cycling is way cheaper than driving. Cars kill and injure thousands of people every year, while in the United Kingdom, for example, cyclists are responsible for hardly any serious accidents. Cities and towns that promote active travel are quieter, more pleasant places. These are only the most obvious positive effects of cycling. Politicians in forward-thinking countries like the Netherlands, France and Denmark have realised this and have been promoting active travel, building infrastructure and making their towns and cities work better as a result. We’re celebrating cycling’s ability to make the world a much better place in this edition of Rouleur. What’s in the magazine? Elisa Longo Borghini Zoom calls and chats in hotel lobbies will never compare to interviewing riders in real life, getting to know them, their quirks, loves and hates... Better still is taking them out of their comfort zone, away from races and Lycra. Going up the London Eye with Lidl-Trek’s Elisa Longo Borghini (plus special guests) was not on Rachel Jary’s 2023 bingo card, but she dutifully obliged the Italian rider’s request at Rouleur Live last year. While admiring the view, she found out about Longo Borghini’s quintessentially Italian upbringing and the humble start she had to her racing career, while also getting an insight into how she achieved her Roubaix, Flanders and Strade Bianche wins. Guillaume Martin It’s obvious that nothing was going to go as planned for this expedition in Portugal, which Ryan Le Garrec started by waking up in a fishing village with a huge hangover. The intention of the trip was never a story anyways. The purpose was just to hang out with friends. On the road and despite 50 miles of a banging headache, Ryan collected glimpses of memories, jokes, anecdotes and feelings dovetailing together and slotting into one another with the random logic and poetry that only big rides can inspire. It’s a story of friendship above all but also the need to ride, a bit, then maybe a bit more, and very often too much and definitely forever.

At the intersection of adventure, sport, and creativity; HiHeyHello is a print magazine celebrating women’s outdoor culture. A new era of women are adventuring outside with a fresh attitude, new style, and the desire for increased inclusion and accessibility. No longer are we adhering to or tolerating outdated stereotypes of who and how we belong in the outdoors. The content includes adventure stories, profiles, coverage of food, gear, art, environmental & social issues, and outdoor culture. It covers outdoor experiences ranging from surfing to rock-climbing, snowboarding to bike-packing, mountaineering to backyard-hikes and everything in between.

Stories in this issue include an interview with Seattle-based style icon, adventurer, and owner of Glasswing, Alisa Furoyama. She talks fashion, riding dirt bikes down the Baja Peninsula, and the importance of community. East coast diver, Chloe Ellison, shares the underwater wonder of the North Atlantic.
