Join The Ride
WELCOME TO OUR NEW-LOOK BICYCLING MAGAZINE. BIGGER FORMAT, BIGGER PICTURES, AND MORE TO READ ABOUT THIS BEAUTIFUL SPORT. So why? In short, we weren’t giving cycling its due.

WE ALSO INTRODUCE OUR NEW GEAR EDITOR, JON MINSTER, WHO WE THREW IN THE DEEP END – WE TOLD HIM THAT HIS FIRST JOB WAS TO WRITE VIRTUALLY A WHOLE MAGAZINE FULL OF BIKES.

AS AN AWARD-WINNING FREELANCE JOURNALIST, JON HAS WORKED FOR VARIOUS PUBLICATIONS OVER THE YEARS,
COLNAGO ARABESQUE 2019 BUT ADMITS THAT THE POSITION OF BICYCLING GEAR EDITOR MAY BE THE BEST JOB HE’S EVER HAD (BESIDES TRYING GET PRICES OUT OF SUPPLIERS, WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?!) //

2019 MARKS THE 16TH YEAR SINCE BICYCLING MAGAZINE WAS LAUNCHED, AND WE’VE TAKEN A LITTLE TIME TO REMINISCE ABOUT OUR FIRST COVER WITH VANESSA SANDES – who probably does more running than cycling now, since marrying trail legend Ryan Sandes…
