A dialed in experience

The app is perfect, the content is killer! The flawless execution of the app ensure that the content provided stands out with no distraction. The content is some of the best cycling specific content of any periodical I’ve read in 30 years of following bicycles. These guys continue to improve, but the starting point was so high to begin with that they’re on top of Ventoux and still climbing!


Outstanding mag for cyclists

Discovered Gran Fondo recently and have been binge reading back issues. It’s a breath of fresh air among cycling magazines. Really love it. Great, high quality, reviews that are meaningful and usable.

Great online road cycling magazine written by passionate cyclists. I really enjoy the bike tests as a number of similar bikes are reviewed and compared. These reviews are practical and appear to be honest.
