The mag's online presence was a little different when I visited. I was particularly struck by one article (sorry I can't recall the title) but my takeaway was that roadies are shy and elitist, and you'd better show up to your group ride looking like everyone else -- or else.

For me, it evoked the ongoing Fred v. poseur v. "real rider" v. commuter bs. I'll consider purchasing it if the publication avoids these characterizations.

Seems like it could fill a void left between Euro pro peleton mags (CS et al), Buycycling ("Ripped quads NOW!!")and the armchair adventurer mags with minimal cycling focus(Outside, NG Adventure).

I'll prolly try it once or twice.

I am still waiting for Winning or Bicyclist to re-enter the market.
Me too, but I doubt it will happen.look271

Sadly, Bicyclist is a thing of the past. Perhaps if LA wins a 5th, it will spark even more interest in road cycling to resurrect that old rag. We can only hope!
