Cyclist Magazine Issue #11$4.95
What better time to reflect on how things are going than at the end of another cycling season? While our beloved columnist Michael Tomalaris takes stock and sees who’s going to be up for a gong in the Australian cycling world this awards season, it's probably about time we did the same here at Cyclist. After all, we're edging ever closer to our two-year anniversary, and while we think we're pretty awesome at bringing you the best cycling mag in the country, we do want to know what you folks out there reckon.
For instance, our balance of Big Rides. There’s one closer to home, like this issue's fantastic conquering of Mount Wellington (well done, that man Malone) on pages 38-51. And then a second ‘bucket list’ trip such as the spectacular Col d'Izoard on pages 104-115. Is that enough to quench your two-wheeled wanderlust? Or do you want more rides, more of our brilliant photographer Marcus Enno’s breathtaking landscapes, and more tales of dramatic descents and lung-busting ascents? Do you want more rides closer to home? Or do you want us to fuel even more of your daydreams with tales of French Alps and curvaceous Scandinavian beauties (of the tarmac kind, that is)?
Then there’s the people we talk to. Want more big name riders, like our Q and A with TdF winner Vincenzo Nibali on pages 30-31? Or more local heroes, like Michael Matthews and Mitchell Docker, the latter of whom Matthew Keenan caught up with on pages 52-59.
Do you want more tech? More nutrition? More reviews? Or are we just pretty much perfect? Either way, we want to know. And there's plenty of ways to let your thoughts be known. You could email me directly – at email@example.com – or get in touch via Facebook, Twitter or, if you feel a desire to illustrate your thoughts with a picture, Instagram. Details of all of these are on the strip to the right of this very column.
And don’t forget we’ve also got cyclist.com.au, so if you've any thoughts on that, be sure to share them too. In the meantime, as you gather your thoughts, enjoy this issue!
