Adventure Cyclist Submissions

Thank you for your interest in Adventure Cyclist magazine — we know you are excited to tell our readers about your bicycle journey and the many wonderful events that happened during your travels.

Because of the overwhelming number of cyclists who would like to be published in Adventure Cyclist and the time it takes to review queries and submissions, we only accept ideas or submissions for publication between June 1 and October 31, each year. Between November 1 and May 31, we are focused on producing an issue of Adventure Cyclist each month, as well as the many other publications of Adventure Cycling Association, and we will not be available to review new materials.

If you decide to submit ideas or materials to us during the open submissions period, please closely read and follow the guidelines below.

We typically schedule stories 12-18 months out, so submissions we be considered for 2018 and even 2019 issues. At present, we're especially looking for well-photographed stories of touring in North America (road or dirt).

Note: Submittable is the only portal through which we will accept inquiries, submissions, and photos. We receive many fantastic story submissions each year, but only a few make it to publication because we require professional-quality photography to accompany features. Please make special note of our guidelines before you submit.
