Ride UK magazine is no more.

Ride UK magazine has been going as long as I have been riding a BMX. I remember seeing issue 8 when I first got into riding, some chump with a diamond back brought it into my art class. I couldn't find or afford to buy one until issue 13. I honestly haven't bought that many in the last two years, I feel that it morphed into something I could no longer believe in or that I could relate to.

Apart from 2013 and 2014 I have every issue.

In the world of BMX, it is a sad day for print.

Maybe there will be another BMX magazine available one day, a radical renaissance, but for now buying magazines is something almost nobody does and as a whole magazines are disappearing from our lives.

The internet masticates pulverises and excretes another art form.

What will be next?

Legendary Ride UK columnist Micky Moore AKA MR Pants very recently organised all my ride mags into numerical order, something I could never bring myself to do.

Cheers Mick.

So long Ride UK!!!


  1. I read about the axing of the mag, sad times. I've still got a load of boxes of old issues, i never kept every single one but all the best ones! Without sounding like an old cunt 'it was different back in the day' where you would wait a month for a new issue and read it in its entirety and buy the latest VHS releases and gather round each others houses to watch them. Now everything is instant and forgotten about as soon as the next video comes out, but somethings i don't think can translate to video as well as in interview or a road trip which was more text heavy than just tricks.
