Cycling Plus magazine wheels out new look

Our Media’s market-leading road cycling monthly, Cycling Plus, has revealed a fresh redesign.

The revamped design will work across its print and digital platforms and is the first major redesign since 2019. The new issue of Cycling Plus, the UK’s best-selling cycling magazine, will be on sale from 14 April 2022 priced at £5.99 (issue 392, June 2022).

Highlights of the new edition include a completely new ‘The Hub’ upfront section with a broad mix of new expert columnists, bike tech pages, destination guides and more. Following that is a revamped version of Cycling Plus’s celebrated bike test, the most exhaustive and respected in cycling media, and also the new ‘Big Read’ slot that will focus on a key issue in the world of cycling each month.

“Although our 2021 ABC figures have again shown that we’re the UK’s leading cycling title, we’re not resting on our laurels and we’re continuing to evolve by finessing the design and bringing in a wealth of new pages. The result is a cleaner and crisper magazine that manages to increase the number of products and personalities featured, as well as offering more riding and destination guides.

Further highlights of the new magazine include…

  • More in-depth features and behind-the-scenes tech articles, using Cycling Plus’s unparalleled industry access
  • More reviews, with a broader range of price points
  • More ‘how to’ guides and buying advice pages
  • More personality and fun, with the team regularly taking on epic (or silly!) challenges
  • More diversity in the contributors and women’s kit reviews
  • More of an international riding focus

The redesign is accompanied by a marketing campaign across print, social media and online, and supported by retail promotions, as well as being showcased at the Cycle Show in London from 22-24 April 2020.

Launched in 1992, Cycling Plus is a celebration of the world of cycling, targeting a broad mix of riders with its expert bike and kit reviews, a wealth of features on the world’s best routes and events, essential performance tips, and an array of inspiring profiles on both amateur and professional cyclists.

The new-look issue of Cycling Plus will be available from 14 April priced at £5.99
