After 13 years, Bicycle Network is retiring its long-standing member publication Ride On magazine.
The next issue of Ride On magazine, due to hit mailboxes and newsstands in late June, will be the last.
Bicycle Network prides itself on delivering the latest news, features, and reviews that you love to read. But to keep up with a dynamic and fast-paced digital world, we must adapt and evolve our approach.
It’s become strikingly clear in the past year that more and more of our content is being consumed online. News updates, advocacy and articles about fighting for riders' rights are out performing our regular features.
Relevance, engagement, pace and ease are being valued above timelessness and traditional – and our surveys, member feedback and statistics reflect that.
As Australia’s biggest bike riding organisation, our members are demanding even more campaigns and leadership to champion real change for people who ride bikes.
With millions riding their bikes each week and many more about to start, the timing is right to shift our focus, align our communications and strengthen our ability to set the agenda, rather than being driven by print deadlines.
Online media provides us with the perfect low-cost and sustainable channel to make a big impact. So in the coming months you'll see some changes - we're revamping our website so that it's easier to use, and we'll produce more daily content, while increasing our presence across social media.
