Taking The Lane Zine Review


Taking the Lane is a serial compilation zine edited by Elly Blue that explores issues of women’s cycling.  The theme of issue #2 is “revolutions every damn day,” which is meant both literally and figuratively.   The main article in this issue is an interview with Jude Kirstein, who builds bicycle wheels.  The rest of the zine contains essays from the zine’s readers: reflections on sexism in bicycle shops, a critique of women’s sports apparel, observations from a cyclist living in China, and tips on how to organize a group ride.  It’s a concise and informative zine with a clean, colorful visual style.
