Fixe Magazine Launches in France With Naked Biker Cover

If you’re a cycle enthusiast, you probably read Fixé Magazine. With four issues in the UK already, the cycling magazine recently launched in France - with an attention-grabbing cover to boot. It features a nude cyclist - the body of a female standing behind a bike; her only clothing is a pair of cycling gloves. Nude cyclist photos also appear within the magazine (see gallery).

In addition to appealing to France’s love of biking - after all, it is the home the world’s most famous bike race, the Tour de France - this debut cover and issue in France is perhaps also to allude to the country’s penchant for romance and sensuality.

Or, it’s just to sell more magazines.
