I carry Resist #46 in my distro: http://www.clickclackdistro.com It's got a really awesome story about a bike race in the dead of Minneapolis winter, some other biking stories, plus info on how to build a bike cart out of bed rails. Matte, who writes the zine, also inclues info about his garden and parenting/his family.

"resist" is really good. i don't carry it, but i've been a fan for many years.

"chainbreaker" is an excellent bike zine. i carry all four issues through paper trail (http://www.papertraildistro.com). issues #4 & #8 of "glossolalia" are great bike touring stories, if you can find them. i might be re-stocking #4 at some point...time will tell. "next stop adventure" is also a good bike tour zine. issues #1 & #2 (available through the distro again) specifically. but for more general purpose how-to/history/non-touring bike stories, "chainbreaker" has you covered.
I still sell the 10+ back issues of my outdoor culture zine, "Out Your Back Door," which has tons of bike action. But mostly I keep my website version of it going these days, at http://OutYourBackDoor.com -- 1000+ articles!
I write randomly about bike stuff, albeit mostly haiku in Haiku a Day, but I keep putting "bike polo" on the list of articles for Late Night Thinking. One of these days I may actually fit it in.

I'll give a general thumbs up to everything ciaraxyerra mentioned, but will call out "Next Stop Adventure" again --- it's one of my favorite zines of all time. There's also this great zine about some guy who lived in the Phoenix area and started biking everywhere when his car broke down or something, but damned if I can remember what it was called. When I get home I'll try to look for it in the pile that is currently my zine collection.
Was it 'Life In the Bike Lane: Breaking My Automobile Addiction' by Dan W? I just read that zine recently and it was pretty fantastic.
