"Peloton" is a somewhat quirky high-end cycling magazine in the US. I say quirky because they'll sometimes have an article about music, art, wine, and so on amongst the usual cycling articles. The latest issue (#105, September 2021) includes an article titled "Bowie and Bush in the Suburbs". The article includes three family photos of KaTe from 1978, along with a single photo of Bowie from 1966.

The article was written by a London author/cyclist about a short ride he made around part of London during the lockdowns there last year. Not allowed to cycle more than an hour per day instead of his usual much longer rides, he set out one day to ride by Bowie's and KaTe's childhood homes. The article mixes in the riding with bits of info from both artists' early days. Unfortunately, either the writer's knowledge about KaTe was fairly light or the article didn't receive much of a fact-check, because at one point he wrote "Bush had already written 'The Boy with the Child in his Eyes'..."

If any completist outside the US can't live w/o a copy of the magazine and has more money than sense, it can be ordered here for the next few weeks:


Or, once the next issue is released, look here:


Cost is $14.99 plus $22.00 shipping. Be sure to order issue #105.

Slight update: You can get free access to *one* issue (digital version) by supplying a name and an email address:


The free issue is currently #105, but it probably won't stay that way for long.

Thanks for the heads up Stephen! Having the same issue here, can’t ride or walk too far at all.

The route was from the author's neighborhood near Grove Park, down to Bromley, then up to Wickham St in Welling. Totally doable in an hour or so.
