Manual for Speed is more or less a form of media, and it is media’s responsibility to report on the passing and subsequent ending of yet another year with a recap of that self-same year. The year in question at this moment, of course, is 2017.
As you may or may not know we feel the need to publish a project we call Road to Rad. What’s Road to Rad? It’s a movement, it’s a commision from on high, it’s saving the future of cycling, it’s a work a fiction, it’s a work of nonfiction, it’s a report, a finding, a manifesto. More importantly, whatever it is, it’s two years late. With that in mind, we decided to end this year with a firm commitment to next year in regards Road to Rad.
Here it goes: we promise, we’re doing it, we’re doing Road to Rad in 2018.
With that in mind, our end-of-the-year roundup and recap of relevant/exciting/interesting/pivotal/watershed-type moments is coming to you in two parts, and each part plays a part in Road to Rad.
- Moments: because the good ones inspire us and the bad ones guide us.
- Roads: because you’re either headed in the right direction or the wrong direction.
