Embrocation Cycling Journal is, and has always been, a handmade magazine. It is the printed extension of our passion for bicycles, the cycling community, and those who have pledged their lives to the same mindset we share. Each volume is no less forged from hand than your favorite lugged steel frame, and no less extensively tested, refined, cried for, bled on, agonized over.

Volume Six

Release: October, 2010

Pages: 110

Contributors: Daniel Sharp, Chris Milliman, Brian Palmer, Mark Vettori, Kyle von Hoetzendorff, Peter Rubijono, Meighan O'Toole, Clarence Smith, Jr., Marthein Smit, Tom Southam, Kyle Von Hoetzendorff, Benji Wagner, Tori Bortman, Richard Sachs, James Morrison

On this issue we explore the sum of all parts that propel us forward, commentating on a very personal level the wonderful outcomes that happen when you mix bicycles, passion, and art. We get a very close, first hand experience at the core of the Belgian classics, a heartfelt account from the Tour of the Battenkill, a seemingly irresponsible write-up on American-style crit racing, a personal take on the sport at the highest level and much more. Intimate, biased, slanted, partisan, tendentious, so what? We get so close we touch handlebars, we smell the sport’s breath, marvel at its sparkling paint job and laugh at each others’ silliness. It’s the trip, the ride, the hurt, the heartbreak that level all riders, all readers, all over. On Volume 6, we’d like to welcome you to the inner sanctum of our relationship. Enjoy, and embrocate regularly.

As most of our readers may have noticed, we don’t play favorites with any particular type of riding at Embrocation. Rather than limit ourselves to a thematic rigidity, we decided to focus on the job at hand. In this issue you’ll find a diversity of subjects; going from the skilled eyes of Chris Milliman’s Lars Boom piece, to the wacky SSCXWC interview, to the intricate, polished work of hand-built bicycles and trinkets, you’ll notice the single strongest component that chains it all together: passion.
