Adventure Cyclist

For almost 40 years, Adventure Cyclist has covered stories of bicycle travel and adventure from around the world. As the only magazine dedicated to bicycle travel, we adventure from bike overnights to cross-country rides to ‘round-the-world tours that have no planned end date.  We’re known for finding inspiring photography, insightful stories, and tales that make our readers long to hit the road.

In addition to our focus on long-form feature stories, Adventure Cyclist continues to build on its rich cycling tech history (which has included long-running columns from Sheldon Brown, John Schubert, and Jan Heine) through bike and gear reviews focused on bicycle touring.

Published nine times a year for our members, Adventure Cyclist is one of the most inspirational and valuable member benefits that we offer. You can request a free sample issue and see what we are all about, or simply join today and get a full-year subscription with your membership.

Regular features in Adventure Cyclist magazine include “Road Test” columns from industry veterans Patrick O’Grady and Nick Legan, a regular look into the latest tech available to a bicycle traveler courtesy of Josh Tack’s “Fine Tuned” column, and long-tenured columnist and National Public Radio travel commentator Willie Weir’s eponymous “Travels with Willie.”

This roster of regulars is bolstered by contributors ranging from Pulitzer Prize nominees to former National Geographic Adventurers of the Year filing dispatches from all corners of the world, and sometimes just around the corner. 

And, of course, possibly the most popular feature of all: Adventure Cycling Co-Founder and Art Director Greg Siple’s “Open Road Gallery,” an ongoing sample from his 30-year-plus portrait collection of cyclists stopping through our offices in Missoula, Montana. These striking black-and-white portraits and short vignettes capture why we travel by bike.
