Here are a few of my favorite bicycling magazines…
A to B – A to B covers folders, e-bikes, and many other car-free alternatives. They produce in-depth reviews of unusual bicycles of all sorts. Print and electronic subscriptions are available.
Bicycle Quarterly – Bicycle Quarterly is targeted at avid bicyclists. They produce the most in-depth technical reviews I’ve read. They conduct well-controlled tests that are folded into their bike reviews. The articles may be too technical for many people, but if you like this sort of thing, no one does it like BQ. Print subscriptions only.
Momentum – Urban bicycling from a Canadian perspective. Momentum focuses primarily on lifestyle, culture, and bicycling fashion, with only a smattering of technical equipment reviews (that said, their latest issue is their “Gear Issue”). It’s a fun magazine and a favorite of Mrs. EcoVelo. Print subscriptions and free electronic issues are available.
Urban Velo – The names says it; Urban Velo covers everything related to bicycling in the city. They offer a nice mix of bike culture and technical articles. I really like their blog too. Print subscriptions and free electronic issues are available.
Velo Vision – I’ve been a big fan of Velo Vision for years. VV is the only magazine that truly covers every type of bike used for transportation including uprights, longbikes, recumbents, folders, e-bikes, velomobiles, and more. Peter Eland writes the most thorough and balanced reviews I’ve come across. Print or electronic subscriptions are available.
Do you have any favorite magazines that cover transportational bicycling that didn’t make the above list? If so, please share… :-)
