Gears for Queers

Melton, Abigail, Cooper, Lilith More by this author...£8.99

Keen to see some of Europe, partners Abi (she/her) and Lili (they/them) get on their bikes and start pedalling.

Along flat fens and up Swiss Alps, they will meet new friends and exorcise old demons as they push their bodies – and their relationship – to the limit.

Abigail and Lilith are a queer couple who are artists, community organisers and service industry workers. Lilith grew up cycling around their hometown of Cambridge and, when they met, transplanted Abigail’s desire to walk the world onto two wheels. This is their first book – born out of a series of zines from their first tour.
