Get Rad Be Radical is an annual publication by WTF Bikexplorers that changes the way women, trans, femme, and non-binary people are depicted and represented in the bicycle adventure community.

The first issue, It’s About Bikes, But Not About Bikes, creates a platform where everyone can see and experience what it means to be a FTWN-B person who shreds—featuring 20 contributors focused on themes discussed at the past WTF Bikexplorers Summits from 2018-2019.

Personal stories include Izzy Sederbaum’s reflections on how shredding the patriarchy starts within and Río Oxas’ poetic expressions on how bicycles are meditation and medicine for your soul. Historical narratives include Tessa Hull’s research on WTF adventures from the early days of cycling and Kaitlyn Boyle’s primer about public lands. Practical how to’s include Sarah Swallow’s detailed notes on how to create a route from scratch, and WTF Mid-Atlantic’s structure on how to build an inclusive cycling group. In addition, Sam Scipio’s illustrated bikepacking pack list includes a takeaway for readers to use on their next bicycle trip. Throughout the publication, interweaved are past and present programs from WTF BX to memorialize the FTWN-B cycling community and to usher the organization into its next chapter.
