Meet the new dandies: Plus 2013 news

New dandy news

By Tammy Thorne, Publisher, dandyhorse magazine

Welcome new dandies Sarah, Kyuwon and Victoria!

dandyhorse magazine has a lot of new stuff happening for 2013. Including a new dandy newsletter that is totally free. The dandy newsletter will sum up the monthly dandyBLOG posts and promote upcoming events.

dandyhorse is also very pleased to announce that we have a new dandy web editor! Writer, editor and songwriter, Sarah Greene bikes for transportation, relaxation, and sometimes inspiration. A native Torontonian, one of her first published pieces of prose was a letter to the editor at NOW Magazine in support of the then-new Dundas East bike lanes. These days, her work can be found in NOW Magazine, Quill & Quire, This Magazine, Broken Pencil, The Coast, Words & Music, and, of course, dandyhorse.

If you would like us to post a story about your event or organization please email

Kyuwon Kim (social media manager and assistant web editor) originally got on the saddle to train for triathlons but now she chooses to bike mostly to save on TTC tokens. She loves biking the Don Valley trails and thinks that everyone should try riding the four-person tandem bike on Toronto Island. Kyuwon is also the dandy responsible for the "Montreal/Vancouver/Toronto?" poster that was a sensation in response to the ridiculous removal of Toronto's Jarvis street bike lane. More about that in our upcoming newsletter.

Victoria Salvas (circulation coordinator) is a year-and-a-half into biking in Toronto. Coming from Northern Ontario she is loving the Toronto she's been able to experience from her bike. She graduated from the University of Western Ontario and dove into the magazine publishing scene, first as an intern and contributor to This magazine, and later joining Magazines Canada. She is jazzed to be getting the word out on dandyhorse as well as providing newsstand and subscription support.

If you would like to sell dandyhorse magazine in your shop or have questions about subscriptions please email Victoria at .

Victoria suggests you consider giving the gift of dandy this holiday season and buy a gift subscription for a friend . You can buy a subscription at or email me at

WHAT ELSE IS NEW? Our dandyCOMMUTE series, that’s what!

You can read some of the stories AND submit your own right here:

Our new dandy team will soon be penning (pixelating?) their own commutes ... and we hope you will too!

We’ve already had a few dandyCOMMUTE contributors. I did one, with more to come. Read some of the stories so far here on the dandyBLOG.

Submit your story here or email with a detailed description of your commute route.

All contributors to the dandyCOMMUTE series receive FREE reflective tape courtesy of 3M and Sweet Pete’s west-end location. Sweet Pete’s at 1204 Bloor Street West will apply the tape to your bike if you like.

We will have more prizes in the new year (including Bell helmets and Timbuk2 bags) and all dandyCOMMUTE contributors will be entered into a grand prize draw to win a bike at the end of 2013.

SPRING SAFETY ISSUE DUE IN MAY: These new dandies, along with our long-time talented and devoted dandy contributors, will work with me as well as experienced graphic designer and photographer Gary Davidson (he designed our “pantless” issue) on our super “safety” issue due this spring. With original U of T research on cycling in the GTA, including illustrative maps, plus a supplementary bike spotting section, alongside profiles of some of the most outspoken cycling personalities, and a safety-is-sexy fashion shoot; our spring issue will be sure to please. We will also feature our favourite dandyCOMMUTE story …and much, much more!

Subscribe today and get dandy at your door!
