    Anyone Subscribe to "Pro Cycling" magazine?

    I usually purchase each issue at Barnes and Noble but they are always a month behind. The January issue should be available sometime this week. For anyone who subscribes, do you get your issues in a more timely fashion? The subscription discount isn't huge so getting my hands on each issue a bit earlier each month would be my primary motivation for subscribing. Thank you.

    If you are referring to the one I frequently read it is a UK mag ... not sure if you'd get the issues any sooner or if it would be cheaper.

    But check them out -- they do offer int'l subscriptions. Here in Europe (Lux) we can get them delivered relatively cheap. Ironies abound ... instead of shipping them from the UK they ship them from some place in SE Asia (if memory serves ... or just Southern Asia).

    So it would seem like they have a broad publishing/distribution capability.

    For what it is worth, that is one of the best magazines covering pro cycling. Obviously slant toward Cav last year -- and I'm sure it will soon be known as "Pro - HAVE YOU SEEN TEAM SKY - Cycling" any issue now -- but the insight into the teams makes it a real "sport" magazine like you'd get in the US not just a cycling mag with some pictures of pro's thrown in.

    There are a few really good cycling mags in the UK -- pro sport, serious cyclist, etc. Every time I fly to UK I stock up on seven or so different titles.

    Not sure if things in the US have improved in the five years I've lived over here ...

    In Canada there a month or so behind at Chapters. Always get the one with the free calendar. This years really sucks.

    I go buy them at either B&N or Performance.
    Either way, it's a month behind.
    Either way, I don't really care.
    I love the magazine.
