Cycling mags; when will I learn?

Barnet,
I used to get Cycling Plus, did so for many years. In the end it kind of left me behind and didn't have my kind of cycling included. So I gave up my subscription. I still get Cycling weekly, but I'm not sure for how much longer.

I'm on my 2nd year of Cyclist subscription. It is mainly glossy articles about places I haven't been to, or people/companies/teams I will never meet. (I haven't tried the other glossies.)
I think this is what printed press is good for. The internet has replaced all the news and tips sections.

(and another vote for the CTC mag - it has a unique purpose and does it well. Not very popular on the CTC forum though :laugh: )

If you like reading them but don't like the price, I got a Readly subscription for £7.99 a month. They have a few cycling mags on there so you can get them all for the one price, plus there are thousands of others. You can cancel at any time and use it on (I think) 5 different devices.

Not much is. They're a bit stiff and hard-line for my liking.

Another vote for readly. I think MBR is about the same price as a month of readly.

If anyone is thinking of signing up for readly drop one of us readly subscribers an message and we and you get a month free if we recommend you.
 
I subscribe to readly app... all the magazine you could ever want or need at around the price of one and half paper ones. but even then I dont often read the cycling ones as there idea of budget and mine are at least a few hundred or even a grand apart

I'm puzzled why anyone would continue to buy cycle magazines, when we have this fantastic resource of reviews advice and opinions that is cyclechat . All with added sarcasm and P taking when required and deserved.

Well sometimes CC just doesn't provoke sufficient outrage. So it's good to get a magazine from time to time in order to work up a really good fury, culminating in shouting: HOW MUCH?? FOR A BIKE?? I CAN'T AFFORD THAT! And then starting an angry thread on here.

And Y fronts! The traditional printed cycling press is devoid of functional classic underwear.

Magazine media is struggling full stop. Modern Classics magazine is shutting this month after 34 years, a number of others has disappeared of the past decade. A friendly tip, if you're thinking of printing a new magazine in your chosen field of interest, don't... Sorry Drago that you're idea of Alien sex toys magazine weekly would be a 'flop'...

I haven't bought one since Velovision changed hands. I didn't buy the few the new owner published having read on a forum, just prior to the takeover, him sounding off about helmet use being essential.
As a recumbent trike user most 'standard magazines' are as useful as the ashtray* I fitted to one of my trikes, along with a side stand!
