Bicycle Safety and Advocacy Magazines

Hello

I'm an photographer and I looove to take pictures of bike and bike culture. Is there a magazine out there dedicated to Bicycle safety and Advocacy? If so will you give me a link to their Website?

Thanks

D,
go to: www.bikeleague.org ! this is the site for the League of American Bicyclists (LAB). i think it's one of our strongest links to bicycle advocacy, enlisting statistically backed bicyclist safety inclusion.
good luck!

Sadly, the mainstream "bike press" gives practically zero attention to advocacy. Bicycling, Velonews, etc. -- they all suck.

There's a relatively new magazine called Momentum that's more about the biking lifestyle than just "stuff," covering mostly culture and advocacy. It features articles by uber-advocates like John Pucher and Kristen Steele. Very promising! I'm a fan. Look them up.
