The main feature in RIDE Cycling Review issue #63 (on sale in newsagents around Australia as of 10 March) is about the bikes of the pro peloton. With over 230 photos there is a lot of imagery to take in. Subscriber copies were mailed today and it’s time for us to start spreading the word: our work from the past three months will soon be on display. We have added a store locator to our site for it’s our bike shop agents that are likely to have the magazine before newsagents. We planned it that way: we want people to visit the Third Space near them… and we want people to see our magazine.
Inside this issue are features on the Tour Down Under, the races in the Middle East, unique insight into the cyclocross worlds by Lisa Jacobs, there are profiles on Matej Mohoric, Jesse Kerrison, Tejay van Garderen, Taylor Phinney, as well as visits to the Omega Pharma-Quickstep and Cannondale pre-season training camps.
It’s a full issue with the paraphernalia pages, five bike tests – Scott, Ridley, Merida, Swift and Orbea – and a visit to Belfast and surrounds for a ride in the latest of the Caffeine Culture series. Adam Phelan and Dan Jones offer their thoughts in columns. And our Retro Review the rebuild of a bike that was ridden from Adelaide to Darwin 100 years ago. There’s also a wonderful ‘Why Ride’ by James Stout: Rules of the Bunch – Etiquette on the bike…
Spread the word: the next issue is on sale soon!
