People are awesome. I love hearing about someone who has an idea, gets up and does it. Melbourne Whip was Kip Jordan’s idea. He wasn’t in publishing, wasn’t a photographer; actually works in a bank. But he wanted to put together a little magazine to celebrate Melburnians and their bikes. He’s been joined more recently by Carole Whitehead and Andy Rogers, two of Melbourne’s finest when it comes to capturing locals on bikes.
You can ask a lot of questions about Melbourne Whip but maybe instead, you should just enjoy it for what it is. The second issue (Issue 1) is out now and also available online. And in the interests of full disclosure, this issue does feature my gorgeous Madison mixte, built by Commuter Cycles with beautiful leatherwork from Busyman Bicycles, so I may be just a little biased!
