Bike Culture Quarterly






Open Road








Oorspronkelijk: 1993




Van Bike Culture Quarterly verschenen tussen 1993 en 2000 twintig nummers. Het inmiddels niet meer bestaande blad, dat zonder adverenties in een Engelse en later ook in een Duitse uitgave verscheen, werd volgens Mike Burrows (die er zelf regelmatig in schreef) gemaakt door 'a well-meaning group of hippie bike nuts'. Hoofdredacteur Jim McGurn formuleerde de pedal power-filosofie achter het blad in het eerste nummer als volgt:
'[…] cycling has, for many people, become much more than great fun. It has become an expression of practical, individualistic alternatives to the destruction of our eco-systems, our communities, our health and our sanity. […] there is now a deeper bicycle culture, whose happy adherents see cycling as a way of life rather than an occasional leisure activity. They wish to see cycle design cutting free from conventions, so that pedal power can be used in more varied and meaningful areas of our lives.'
In BCQ verschenen daarom artikelen over allerlei soorten fietsen en fietsonderwerpen, vaak vanuit een breder maatschappelijk perspectief en met veel aandacht voor ligfietsen en andere alternatieve of innovatieve HPVs. Als opvolger van BCQ wordt VeloVision beschouwd, dat onder redactie van voormalig BCQ-medewerker Peter Eland verschijnt.


Bij Zephyr (LINK) en Liegerad-Datei Verlag (LINK) waren in januari 2004 nog enkele volledige sets te koop.
