Bicycling Magazine Goes Urban
The newsstand mainstay Bicycling Magazine has recently announced a redesign, that their focus will move away from exclusively road and fitness and more into city and commuter bike and long-form narrative articles. Bicycle Retailer reported on it, with editor-in-chief Peter Flax saying of the change, “…cycling culture has become more authentic and timeless. He cited examples of roadies kitted up in a more stylish way and women riding city bikes in street clothes. “I felt the design and packaging of the magazine could be more sophisticated and upscale to reflect that trend.” And just in case you can’t get enough of it, Bike Snob now officially has a recurring column in the most mainstream of cycling media.
