Best of Boneshaker is Now Available, a Collection 10-Years in the Making

Friday, November 30, 2018

Evan P. Schneider (KHN Alumni, 2007) has announced the release of a collection he "dreamed up and started" while at KHN in 2007.  The Best of Boneshaker is a "weather-worn collection of prose, poetry, interviews, art, and literary miscellany" compiled from ten issues of Boneshaker: A Bicycling Almanac, of which Schneider is founding editor.  The compedium is "modeled loosely after a 1941 Soldier’s Basic Field Manual" and is an ode to the many facets of bicyling and "that fundamentally lonesome experience one has in the saddle."  



“A philosophical love letter to life in the saddle.” –ESQUIRE

“Literary-minded essays, poems, and interviews for the silent soldiers of

the bicycle army.” –UTNE READER

“A companion for you and your bike. It is delightful.” –MOMENTUM

“The next best thing to coasting downhill with the wind in your hair.”


“Boneshaker occupies a long unfilled niche by offering something relevant

to the multitudes of hungry cyclists.”
