Bicycle Times

One of my coworkers gave me a copy of this magazine yesterday, and I'd never seen it before. "Your Everday Cycling Adventure" is under the name on the title, and that's what's inside too - imagine Bicyclist written for us. Even if I haven't seen the word "Fred" in there yet. I'd highly recommend it.

Yes, it is the same great folks that bring you Dirt Rag. Look for the handsome man with a stylin' univega super ten in back page of the second issue (Me!)

looks promising for the commuter! I got my first issue a couple weeks ago. I like it.

I saw this in Barnes & Noble this weekend as well and really liked it. The annual subscription is only $10, which is pretty cheap.

Sorry to be a spoil sport but it wasn't really interesting to me. I've read from the first issue to the current one but really can't pick out anything in particular memorable. I do like the idea though as it seems to be written by commuters for commuters. It also seems to be soliciting ideas from its readers as well. However in the current issue I did like the light comparison and the accompanying photos.

I think i've been trolling these boards to long and picking up a lot of great advice from other posters. So please stop .

Cool, I figured you were one of us when I saw the picture. Too bad they didn't get a shot of the Christmas lights all lit up.

I'm not sure it would be sustainable more often than that. I mean, "Bicycling" can get away with "Get Faster Now" three times a year because of their target audience, but how often can you run "Bike Lanes: Are They Safe"?

I found it at Barnes and Noble and it was the first bicycling magazine in decades that I thought was even remotely aimed at me. I hope it prospers.
