Ride magazine...any of you northeast rbr'ers subscribe?jtferraro

I'm considering subscribing and like the fact that is covers road, mtb, cross, commuting, etc., and supposedly captures "northeast culture". I used to work w/the editor, in a ski/bike shop YEARS ago but she's no longer the editor and the magazine has left CT for MA. Any info appreciated.

Thanks,

I'd rarely seen it until a couple of months ago, when a friend of mine gave them my name and they featured me in their commuter article. So I had to get a few copies of that issue :)

Overall, I kind of like it. Not gear oriented, more ride oriented. Some stuff on racing, some stuff on mountain biking, some advocacy stuff. Its a pretty quick read, but sort of cool for a regional mag.

how many days a week do you commute? I'll have to see if I can also get my hands on that issue - what month was it?

BTW, thanks for the info.

I recieved a year's subscription as a gift (9 issues, i think) and enjoyed it. As mentioned above, they have more articles about rides, than equipment or training. They did have a good calendar for NorthEast races - road, mtb, cyclo. It was nice, just a little thin. I don't know about the 'culture' thing, though...
I did not re-new. I've seen it at some shops around Boston. Pick up an issue or 2 and check it out.
Anyone interested in selling their back-issue of RIDE?mpj

I presume we are talking about Cycling Review - RIDE? If so; I think its one of the best cycling magazines; although a little too focused on the Australian scene; but then again, that's where the mag is published. Anyway; if someone is interested in parting with their back-issues, I would be willing to pay a fair price {Paypal - Money Order} . I currently have issue 17, 18 and the current one #19. Please let me know? Thanks, Marc {mpj@iserv.net}
Nope, must be a different mag but I hope someone can help u. nmjtferraro
