RIDE Cycling Review #54 – Release Date…
Please note: There is no October issue of RIDE Cycling Review this year.
The release dates for RIDE Cycling Review have been altered a little in 2011, starting with the current issue (ie. #53 – with Cadel Evans on the cover). Usually an issue is released mid-Tour de France. This time we shunted it back to after the Tour. Glad we did too because the result certainly gave us plenty to write about. That was the largest issue ever and we are proud to have been able to include the pull-out poster sponsored by BMC with the great images from the 98th edition of the Tour de France. This was officially on sale in newsagents on 26 August 2011…
Yes, there is a mention in the credits of previous magazines that the release dates are January, April, July and October, but this is no longer the case.
The new release dates are February (Volume 01), May (Volume 02), August (Volume 03) and November (Volume o4).
When the title first started, they were named after seasons: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Then we started selling more international subscriptions so rather than being southern hemisphere-specific we altered the titles and included months. But this never truly represented the release dates. Of course, this is all house-keeping but it helps to explain why the current issue (#53) is titled “Volume 03 • 2011″.
Volume 04 • 2011 (ie. #54) is another bumper issue with plenty of racing coverage including the US Pro Cycling Challenge, Vuelta a España, world championships, Tour of Beijing, Jayco-Herald Sun Tour, and much more. There is also a new addition to our bike testing protocol, an in-depth review of seven high-end wheelsets, great rider profiles, interesting columns, and all the usual elements which make RIDE Cycling Review such a highly anticipated magazine.
RIDE #54 is almost finished. It will be printing soon and dispatched from Sydney around the second week of November.
Thanks to all our loyal readers for your continued support. And welcome to recent converts to the joy of cycling. I look forward to hearing what you think of the new issue in the coming weeks.
