People who spend a lot of time at street level tend to see the world in a different way. Outside, on the ground, and shoulder-to-shoulder with every type of person, a unique perspective develops.

That’s the rationale behind a new print publication – Lines Through The City – that Huck has made in collaboration with Levi’s®. Documenting stories of skateboarders and cyclists who experience the city in different ways every day, the publication – which takes life as an uncoated large format newspaper – is a tangible showcase of the two cultures.

Stories in the publication include a mini photo series on secret skate spots in India, Australia and Spain; A collection of interviews and portraits from New York’s premier track race the Red Hook Crit; A personal reflection of a life growing up skateboarding in a politically stifling Russia; A one-woman journey to use cycling as a vehicle for change in Afghanistan; A story of commercial skateboarding success in an austerity-ridden Greece; And the cycling world’s first female African-American pro.

Keen to explore the connection between the two cultures, Lines Through The City – which has a skate cover on one side and a cycling cover on the other – focuses on independent characters who have used either cycling or skateboarding to reshape their landscape.

It is now available, for free, in over 300 Levi’s® stores around the world.
