2017 CityBIke MagazinesNot just urban hooligans—we are commuters, adventurers, roamers of the twisties, dirtbikers, racers, horizon seekers, advocates for utilitarian motorcycling and yes, hooligans, in the canyons of the city and beyond.

CityBike began as Northern California’s original free motorcycling publication, started in 1984 with the idea that the Bay Area motorcycle culture was vibrant, so ingrained in daily life, so rich in history, characters, stories, racing, riding, and comradeship that it deserved to be chronicled in large-format, tabloid-sized print.

Our mission today remains the same: to deliver to our readers thoughtful and provocative journalism that while perhaps lacking some of the production values, gloss and polish of mainstream moto-media, more than makes up with real-deal participation, critical thoughtfulness, integrity, enthusiasm, and loyalty to our readers and our beliefs. Like our readers, we are real riders, fiercely loyal to our local riding scene, our community: moto-commuters, racers, street and dirt riders; sporting and adventure riders; simultaneously advocates and hooligans.
