CANADIAN CYCLING Magazine launched this month on the heels of the International Bicycle Show in Toronto. Focused specifically on Canadians interested in cycling as a sport, Publisher Sam Cohen said the magazine was created to fill a void in the market that has only US “spillover” cycling magazines.
The 80-page, full-colour, bimonthly magazine has sections on news, gear and product reviews, training and warm-up tips, bike repair advice, health and nutrition, and events as well as features on personalities and cycle-friendly destinations. The magazine’s website will also carry news, blogs, buy and sell forums along with an events calendar.
The first issue is about 25% advertising with a distribution of about 25,000. Newsstands and bike retailers across the country received close to 16,000 copies and the remainder was sent free to subscribers of TRIATHLON Magazine.
Canadian Cycling increases the titles of Toronto-based publisher Gripped Inc. to four, which also includes GRIPPED: THE CLIMBING MAGAZINE, CANADIAN RUNNING and Triathlon Magazine Canada. Contact Editor Dan Dakin at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
