If you look good, you feel good...

Forget Gok Wan or Trinny and Susannah, there's only one makeover worth talking about. Cycling Plus is now bang on trend!

If you're a subscriber then no doubt you've noticed something a bit different about the Cycling Plus which dropped on to your doormat in the last few days. We've had something of a makeover...

That's right - look at the picture of the editor and you'll notice my brand new nose and barely noticeable hair plugs...Actually that's wishful thinking, but the magazine, of course, has changed. If you've been reading us for a while we hope that you like it - we do - and if you've never read us before, or have maybe missed a few issues, we hope that you're tempted to have a look inside.

Once inside, I'm confident that you'll like what you find. We've visually spruced up every single section of the magazine, but that doesn't mean we've compromised on the really important bits - the words. Our bike tests are still the most comprehensive in the business, and the brand new Road Tested section will bring you honest reviews of products that we've used day in day out. Our fitness, training and nutrition advice is clearer and easier to understand than ever before - and therefore easier to make real-life use of - and we'll continue to bring you the best cycling features, both in terms of words and pictures, out there.

Right that's the advert over. I hope that you like the new Cycling Plus and let me know what you think!

Editor-in-Chief, Cycling Plus, Cycling Plus Magazine
Editor-in-chief Rob has been pedalling Cycling Plus since 2007. His first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. A former competitive runner, Rob has repeatedly threatened to become a competitive cyclist in every discipline from time-trailling to hill climbing to bike polo. We're still waiting.
  • Discipline: Road. Mainly commuting but with the occasional mountainous sportive that he'll complain about/fail to complete. Enjoys cake stops. Will never, ever do another triathlon after a bad experience in open water.
  • Preferred Terrain: Gently undulated roads – he's more of a rouleur. Likes gravel.
  • Current Bikes: BMC Alpenchallenge, Viner Perfecta, BMC Granfondo GF0, anything shiny that Warren Rossiter will allow him to ride
  • Dream Bike: Bianchi Specialissima, Raleigh Banana
  • Beer of Choice: Innis and Gunn Original
  • Location: Bath, UK
