Outside magazine hires Bike Snob NYC's Eben Weiss and adventurer Brendan Leonard

Published July 11, 2017

SANTA FE, N.M. (BRAIN) — Outside magazine has hired two new writers this month: Eben Weiss, best known as the man behind Bike Snob NYC, and Brendan Leonard, of the Semi Rad website. Each will write a weekly column for Outside's website.

Weiss has written for Bicycling and other sites in addition to running Bike Snob, where he's unleashed his snarky sense of humor on the sport of cycling and its related characters. 

Leonard has biked across America, ridden through the Grand Canyon on a raft, walked across the canyn twice and lived out of a converted van for three years.

"Weiss and Leonard will bring a unique take on adventure with the smart and satirical tone that we love at Outside," said Axie Navas, the executive editor of the magazine. "We are excited and fortunate to have these key voices writing for us."
