Chatting with Casquette about booze and Kim Kardashian

Brand new women’s cycling magazine Casquette is a breath of fresh air. I’ve got absolutely nothing against women’s cycling magazines and websites that cater to newer riders – there’s a huge need for these – but as a more experienced rider and racer I find it frustrating that there’s little created for me and my buddies.

Pretty Damned Fast and Ella Cycling Tips are two websites I enjoy reading when I find the time but as I spend so much time working on a screen of some kind of another, I really love taking a break from computers and phones and picking up a printed magazine.

Casquette is a brand new quarterly women’s cycling magazine that has interviews that interest me (Nicole Cooke and Emily Chappel in the launch issue) as well as a great sense of style that connects with me, because hey, I like checking out cool cycling stuff.

Danielle from Casquette popped down to the Assos London store launch to say hi so we took the chance to grab a coffee and chat about publishing – she told me that plenty of people had sung Coven Magazine’s praises (the magazine I used to publish) so it was nice to tell her about my experiences, both good and bad.

Danielle then recorded an interview with me which has just gone up on the Casquette site so head over there and find out why I think commuting is a gateway drug, when I was happiest on a bike and why I like working with Assos.
