My local Borders book shopsruns out of Cycling Plus (the british cycling mag) every month but never Bicycling!
You know your bicycling magazine sucks when people would rather pay twice the cover price to read a magazine about bicycling in another country.
I love the featured tours that Cycling Plus has every month. Makes me want to hop on the next plane and tour the UK the rest of my days
That little sad crumb Bicycling threw us about touring in Ireland was tired. The problem is, it's not an article, as much as it is pictures with captions. I swear, half the time, that magazine acts like people who pick up the magazine either have short attention spans or don't know how to read.
I picked up the Cycling Plus. Their tours are awesome, and they really go all out with writing REAL articles and including great pictures with explanations.
I could never do a tour based on the info in Bicycling, but I could do a tour featured in Cycling Plus. It just goes to show the lower quality writing in Bicycling as compared to other cycling magazines.
I just think Bicycling is focusing too much on too many subjects. Everything usually comes out a mediocre mess, and I haven't been impressed with that magazine in years.
