Last year we put in a plug for Dirt Rag, the longtime MTB magazine that devotes more than a few pages to long distance riding and touring. This year the editors launched a companion, Bicycle Times, that is devoted to road riding, commuting and utility cycling.
If you ride your bike(s) for all kinds of purposes, then Bicycle Times is a keeper. It profiles fun bikes and gear, much of it applicable to that next rainy 200K. The upcoming issue, No. 5, will include reviews centered around long-distance ride comfort and a primer on fenders — perfect randonneur reading.
Tomorrow: Where everything is good.
